Revised Emergency Generator General Permit (GP-005)
The Air Quality Permitting Program recently revised the Emergency Generator General Permit (GP-005).
The reasons for the revision to GP-005 were:
- To incorporate the requirements of revised New Jersey Administrative Code 7:27-19, Control and Prohibition of Air pollution by Oxides of Nitrogen.
- To incorporate the United States Environmental Protection Agency proposed New Source Performance (NSPS) requirements for Emergency Generators outlined at 40 CFR 60.4207 Subpart IIII.
- To allow a facility to combine all applicable Emergency Generators at the facility into one single registration in most situations.
This General Permit is currently not available through E-NJEMS. The necessary forms for registration can be obtained from www.state.nj.us/dep/aqpp/gp.html or by calling 609-633-2829 and requesting that the revised GP-005 for Emergency Generators be mailed to you.
Please use the paper version of GP-005 and submit the completed registration form with a $350.00 registration fee and mail to the Department at:
