EF = Default fugitive CO2 emission factor for geothermal facilities as specified in Appendix A, kg per MMBtu; Heat = Heat taken from geothermal steam and/or fluid, MMBtu per year.
Operators of geothermal generating facilities may elect to calculate CO2 emissions using ARB approved source specific emission factors derived from tests conducted at least annually under the supervision of ARB or the local air pollution control district or air quality management district. Upon approval of a test plan by ARB, the test procedures in that plan shall be repeated in future years to update the source specific emission factors annually. In the absence of source specific emission factors approved by ARB, the operator shall use the method specified above in section 95111(i)(1).
