RICE NESHAP Compliance

EPA-RICE-NESHAP-revised-rule-affecting-Duke-Energy-demand-response-program-300x202.jpgThe EPA regulations known as RICE NESHAP, which allowed emergency rated diesel generators to participate in Duke Energy’s demand response programs for up to 100 hours, changed on Monday May 2nd, 2016.

The revised regulation now requires RICE NESHAP non-emergency rated generators for program participation.

Participating generator owners, served by Duke Energy, will have until December 31st 2016 to certify that their engines are RICE NESHAP non-emergency compliant, or lose the substantial savings offered for participation.
