(b) Compliance. The emissions of mercury of a Hg budget source shall not exceed the number of allowances that it has in its compliance account according to Rule .2510 of this Section. (c) Emission measurement requirements. The emissions measurements recorded and reported according to 40 CFR 60.4170 through 60.4176 shall be used to determine compliance by each source identified in this rule with its emissions limitation according to 40 CFR 60.4106(c). (d) Excess emission requirements. The provisions of 40 CFR 60.4106(d) shall be used for excess emissions.





(e) Liability. The owner or operator of any source covered under this Section shall be subject to the provisions of 40 CFR 60.4106(f). (f) Modification and reconstruction, replacement, retirement, or change of ownership. The modification or reconstruction of a source covered under this Rule shall not make that source a "new" source for the purposes of this Section; it may be considered a new source under Rule 15A NCAC 02D .0524, New Source Performance Standards, or 40 CFR Part 60. A source that is modified or reconstructed shall retain its emission allocation under Paragraph (a) of this Rule. If one or more sources covered under this Rule is replaced, the new source shall receive the allocation of the source, or sources, that it replaces instead of an allocation under Rule .2508 of this Section. If the owner of a source changes, the emission allocations under this Rule and revised emission allocations made under Rule .2509 of this Section shall remain with the source. If a source is retired, the owner or operator of the source shall follow the procedures in 40 CFR 60.4105. The allocations of a retired source shall remain with the owner or operator of the retired source until a reallocation occurs under Rule .2509 of this Section when the allocation shall be removed and given to other sources if the retired source is still retired. (g) The Director shall comply with the timing requirements for mercury allocations under 40 CFR 60.4141.
