Air Quality Permits for Generators
Any industrial or heavy equipment that produces emissions is required to follow the guidelines set forth by the Environmental Protection Agency. Diesel generators are of course included in that group, and this month's article outlines some factors to consider when operating a diesel generator for backup usage or as a prime source of power. While there are some levels of federal guidelines, it is best to check with your local EPA office or website to determine if your generator requires an air quality permit. The location, size, and hours of usage are all taken into consideration when applying for the permit. Requirements vary greatly from state to state, and it is important to know that most dealers and electrical contractors will not install a generator until the proper air quality permit is obtained.
