NORTHERN SONOMA COUNTY AIR POLLUTION CONTROL DISTRICT

RULE 310 - PERMIT FEE SCHEDULES

It is hereby determined that the cost of reviewing permit applications, issuing authorizations, and of inspections, testing and monitoring pertaining to such issuance, exceeds the fees prescribed herein. In determining the fees to be charged, identical or like equipment within each process unit that requires a permit may be totaled for each schedule. In the event that more than one fee schedule is applicable to an Authority to Construct or Permit to Operate, the governing schedule shall be that which results in the highest fee. A CPI fee adjustment factor may be applied to the initial fee with 1992 as base year.

SCHEDULE 1
ELECTRIC MOTOR HORSEPOWER SCHEDULE

Any stationary source of air contaminant emissions for which an Authority to Construct or a Permit to Operate is required, where an electric motor or equivalent drive unit is used as the power supply, shall be assessed a permit fee based on the total rated horsepower of all such drive units, or their horsepower equivalent in kilovolt amperes (1 KVA=1.34 HP), included in such stationary source in accordance with the following schedule.
