E Source dissected two new rulings—more commonly called the RICE Rule—issued by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in January 2013 to give you the lowdown on how the rulings will impact your peak-shaving programs. The short answer: Starting May 3, 2014, utility customers that use backup generators or reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICEs) to participate in local peak-shaving programs will have to adhere to the EPA’s new air emission standards. This means utility customers will have to put pollution controls in place or face whopping fines of up to tens of thousands of dollars.
