Detailed Instructions are included within the Excel file.
- Select the type of engine. These are pull-down menus with a selection of various types of engines in two categories:
- Other (gasoline, natural gas, propane)
- Input the number of engines
- Input the typical hours of operation over one year (actual data, if available).
- Input the horsepower rating of each engine.
- Input the engine load factor, if known. The default is 65%, but this can be changed. Load factor is defined as the amount of power used by the engine to do work, expressed as a percentage of the maximum.
- Read the resulting actual and potential emissions. If the actual emissions are greater than 50% of the Title V thresholds, you MAY be subject to Title V. The next step is to analyze potential emissions (PTE).
- If the PTE emissions exceed the Title V thresholds, you are likely to be subject to Title V permit requirements.
- Contact the SJVUAPCD Small Business Assistance to verify agreement with your results. You may be able to take limits on your engines to avoid the need for a Title V permit; this is called a "synthetic minor."
