Environmental Activity and Sector Registry (EASR) Regulation for Landfill Gas Power Generating Facilities

Regulation Number(s):
Instrument Type:
Bill or Act:
Environmental Protection Act
Summary of Proposal:
The proposed regulation is in response to the Ministry of Energy's Feed-In Tariff (FIT) Program Two-Year Review and would require a person to register certain landfill gas power generating facilities with a name plate capacity that is less than or equal to 10 megawatts. In order to register, facilities will need to meet specific design criteria including, but not limited to, being located on landfill sites, meeting setback distances to the landfill property line to account for air and noise emissions. Various operating requirements are also proposed, such as maximum discharge velocity from exhaust stacks, noise attenuation measures, notification to neighbouring properties, local municipalities and service boards, and the documentation of routine maintenance, inspections, and environmental complaints, as applicable.
