Non-Title V Source Annual Emission Fees

Non-Title V annual fees are required from sources that have allowable emissions of less than 100 tons of each criteria pollutant/year, less than 10 tons/year of a single hazardous air pollutant, and less than 25 tons per year of a combination of hazardous air pollutants (true minor and conditional major sources). The current non-Title V fee rate is $18.75 per ton of allowable emissions.

Conditional Major Permit Review Fees

The services we provide to ensure conditional major sources are operating below the major source emission thresholds are assessed as a conditional major permit review fee.  The technical services provided include, but are not limited to, permit writing with source-specific emission thresholds and compliance conditions, source inspections, and the review of annual reports to ensure compliance with conditional major requirements.

Proposed Development Plan

APC is considering several different methods to increase fee collections Some possible methods are:

  •     Increases to construction permit fees that would affect new facilities or expansions at existing facilities
  •     Increases  to the conditional major review fee
  •     Establishment of a “base” annual emission fee and/or a minimum annual emission fee for non-Title V sources (Title     V sources already pay base and minimum annual fees and a higher dollar per ton fee)

The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation has withdrawn the proposed Title V and Non-title V fee rules discussed at the September 2018 board meeting.
