“Fugitive emissions” means the unintended or incidental emissions of greenhouse gases from the transmission, processing, storage, use, or transportation of fossil fuels or other materials, including but not limited to HFCs from refrigeration leaks, SF6 from electric power distribution equipment, methane from mined coal, and CO2 emitted from geyser steam and/or fluid used in geothermal generating facilities.
“Fugitive source” means a source of fugitive emissions.
"Full verification" means all verification services as provided in section 95131.
“General stationary combustion facility” means a facility not otherwise subject to sector-specific reporting requirements that emits >25,000 metric tonnes of CO2 in 2008 or any subsequent year from stationary combustion sources.
“Generating facility” means a facility that generates electricity and includes one or more generating units at the same location.
“Generating unit” means any combination of physically connected generator(s), reactor(s), boiler(s), combustion turbine(s), or other prime mover(s) operated together to produce electric power.
“Global warming potential” or “GWP factor” means the radiative forcing impact of one mass-based unit of a given greenhouse gas relative to an equivalent unit of carbon dioxide over a given period of time.
“Greenhouse gas,” “greenhouse gases” or “GHG” means carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), and perfluorocarbons (PFCs).
“Greenhouse gas source” means any physical unit, process, or other use or activity that releases a greenhouse gas into the atmosphere.
“Gross generation” means the total electrical output of the generating unit, expressed in megawatt hours (MWh) per year.
“High heat value” or “HHV” means the high or gross heat content of the fuel with the heat of vaporization included. The water vapor is assumed to be in a liquid state.
“Hydrocarbons” means chemical compounds containing predominantly carbon and hydrogen.
