The NYCDEP requires that all generators (stationary, portable or emergency) with an output of 40kW or more must obtain a registration or a Permit/Certificate of Operation before they operate. NYCDEP has recently amended the rules for testing these generators. The followings are the requirements for all generators having an output of 40kW or more, unless they are certified Tier IV, newly installed and being registered for the first time.
For generators requiring a NYCDEP registration (between 40kW and 450kW) proof that the generator(s) passed either the stack test or opacity test must be submitted to NYCDEP upon request, meanwhile for generators requiring a NYCDEP Permit/Certificate of Operation (above 450kW) documentation proving that the generator(s) passed either the stack test or opacity test must be submitted to NYCDEP together with the original inspection request to obtain a Certificate of Operation.
