The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality is proposing a new non-rule air quality standard permit for natural gas fired electric generating units. The proposed standard permit would provide a preconstruction authorization that may be used by any NG EGU complying with the standard permit requirements provided it is not prohibited by other local, state, or federal permitting statutes or regulations.

All comments should reference Rule Project Number 2024-005-OTH-NR. The comment period closes midnight on July 30, 2024. Copies of the proposed rulemaking can be found here.
