If a projected date of commencement of commercial operation is provided, the actual date of commencement of commercial operation shall be provided when such information becomes available.
(i) “I certify that I was selected as the designated representative or alternate designated representative, as applicable, by an agreement binding on the owners and operators of the source and each CSAPR SO2 Group 1 unit at the source.”
(ii) “I certify that I have all the necessary authority to carry out my duties and responsibilities under the CSAPR SO2 Group 1 Trading Program on behalf of the owners and operators of the source and of each CSAPR SO2 Group 1 unit at the source and that each such owner and operator shall be fully bound by my representations, actions, inactions, or submissions and by any decision or order issued to me by the Administrator regarding the source or unit.”
(iii) “Where there are multiple holders of a legal or equitable title to, or a leasehold interest in, a CSAPR SO2 Group 1 unit, or where a utility or industrial customer purchases power from a CSAPR SO2 Group 1 unit under a life-of-the-unit, firm power contractual arrangement, I certify that: I have given a written notice of my selection as the ‘designated representative’ or ‘alternate designated representative’, as applicable, and of the agreement by which I was selected to each owner and operator of the source and of each CSAPR SO2 Group 1 unit at the source; and CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances and proceeds of transactions involving CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances will be deemed to be held or distributed in proportion to each holder's legal, equitable, leasehold, or contractual reservation or entitlement, except that, if such multiple holders have expressly provided for a different distribution of CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances by contract, CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances and proceeds of transactions involving CSAPR SO2 Group 1 allowances will be deemed to be held or distributed in accordance with the contract.”
