Green Mountain Power Corporation

SERVICE:

Online CO2 Reporting via ECMPS

DESCRIPTION:

Green Mountain Power Corporation's (GMP), Berlin Electric Power Generating Station needed to submit its emissions of carbon dioxide on-line using the EPA's Emission Collection and Monitoring Plan System (ECMPS). This reporting was required by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation, but GMP staff had trouble navigating the complex software.

Tech Environmental created a monitoring plan for the Berlin station, using the EMPS software that included three years of historic emissions data for NOx and SO2 to demonstrate low emitter status. Once this monitoring plan had been developed, Tech entered fuel usage data and operating hours for both units for the first, second, and third quarters of 2009. This required multiple communications with the program's tech support team to fix program bugs so that the data could be submitted. The data for all three quarters were submitted, satisfying the requirements of the VT DEC.
