EA - Environmental Assessment

Document Description
The purpose of PR 1304.1 - Electrical Generating Facility Fee for Use of Offset Exemption, is to require any EGF that elects to use a specific offset exemption (Rule 1304 (a)(2)) to pay annual fees or a single, up-front fee for the amount of offsets provided by the SCAQMD. Offsets in SCAQMD internal accounts are valuable public goods. The purpose of this rule is to recoup the fair market value of offsets procured by eligible EGFs electing to use such offsets to comply with Rule 1304 (a)(2). The fee is a reasonable cost to confer the benefit of the offsets, and proceeds will be invested in air pollution improvement projects that further the goals of the 2012 AQMP. The IS identified the environmental topics of "air quality and greenhouse gas emissions" and "energy" as the only areas that may be adversely affected by the proposed project. Impacts to these environmental areas are further analyzed in the Draft EA.
