PAEL Reporting Instructions

This webpage is to provide guidance in the Preapproved Emission Limit (PAEL) reporting obligations and to assist you in complying with those requirements. It is not necessary to submit copies of fuel receipts along with the annual calculations, but you are required to retain the fuel receipts for five years, and make them available for department inspection upon request. In accordance with applicable regulations 18 AAC 50.230(a)(b)(c)(1)(A)(H) and (c)(2)(A)-(D), or 18 AAC 50.230(a)(d)(1)(A)-(D), (d)(2)(A)-(D),and your preapproved emission limit, you have agreed to:

Diesel Engines facilities

  • Limit the quantity of fuel consumed in the equipment listed in your application during any consecutive 12 months to no more than the amount proposed in your application;
  • Record the amount of fuel consumed in the equipment and calculate the total fuel consumed in the equipment during the preceding 12 months.
