A person shall not construct or operate any new emission unit, or modify or operate any existing emission unit, which the Air Pollution Control Officer determines is for the primary purpose of replacing the same function or manufacturing the same product as an emission unit which was shutdown and for which a corresponding ERC was granted, and which the Air Pollution Control Officer determines is related to the same function or product manufacturing previously accomplished by the shutdown emission unit, unless:
 

  1. All requirements of these rules and regulations have been met; and
  2. Actual emission reductions are provided or Class A ERCs canceled in an amount equivalent to the ERC that was granted for the shutdown emission unit, or the ERC issued for the shutdown emission unit is canceled.
