Allowance allocation.

Allowance allocation. The Administrator will allocate allowances to the eligible unit upon satisfactory submittal of information under paragraphs (c) and (d) of this section in the amount calculated by the following equations. Such allowances will be allocated to the unit's 2000 future year subaccount.
(1) “Prior year” means a single calendar year selected by the eligible unit from 1995 to 1999 inclusive.
(2) One “credit” equals one ton of eligible SO2 emissions reductions.
(3) “ERC units” are units eligible for early reduction credits, and “non-ERC units” are fossil fuel-fired units that are part of the same operating system but are not eligible for early reduction credits.
(4) For any unit that did not operate during 1990, the unit's 1990 SO2 emission rate will be equal to the weighted average emission rate of all of the other units at the same source that did operate during 1990.
(5) Early reduction credits will be calculated at the unit level, subject to the restrictions in paragraph (e)(6) of this section.
(6) The number of credits for eligible Phase II units will be calculated as follows:
(i) Comparison of the prior year utilization of ERC units to the 1990 utilization, as a percentage of system utilization. If, as calculated below, system-wide prior year utilization of ERC units exceeds systems-wide 1990 utilization of ERC units on a percentage basis, then paragraphs (e)(6)(ii) and (iii) of this section apply. If not, the ERC units are eligible to receive early reduction credits as calculated in paragraph (e)(6)(v)(A) of this section.
(ii) Comparison of the prior year average emission rate of all ERC units to the prior year average emission rate of all non-ERC units. If, as calculated below, the system-wide average SO2 emission rate of ERC units exceeds that of non-ERC units, then a unit's prior year utilization will be restricted in accordance with paragraph (e)(6)(iv) of this section. If not, then paragraph (iii) of this section applies.
(iii) Comparison of the emission rate of the non-ERC units in the prior year to the emission rate of the non-ERC units in 1990. If, as calculated in paragraph (ii) of this section, the prior year system average non-ERC SO2 emission rate increases above the 1990 system average non-ERC SO2 emission rate, as calculated below, then a unit's prior year utilization will be restricted in accordance with paragraph (e)(6)(iv) of this section. If not, the ERC units are eligible to receive early reduction credits as calculated in paragraph (e)(6)(v)(A) of this section.
(iv) Calculation of the utilization limit for restricted units. The limit on utilization for each unit eligible for early reduction credits subject to paragraphs (e)(6) (ii) and (iii) of this section will be calculated as follows:
(1) “Prior year” means a single calendar year selected by the eligible unit from 1995 to 1999 inclusive.
(2) One “credit” equals one ton of eligible SO2 emissions reductions.
(3) “ERC units” are units eligible for early reduction credits, and “non-ERC units” are fossil fuel-fired units that are part of the same operating system but are not eligible for early reduction credits.
(4) For any unit that did not operate during 1990, the unit's 1990 SO2 emission rate will be equal to the weighted average emission rate of all of the other units at the same source that did operate during 1990.
(5) Early reduction credits will be calculated at the unit level, subject to the restrictions in paragraph (e)(6) of this section.
(6) The number of credits for eligible Phase II units will be calculated as follows:
(i) Comparison of the prior year utilization of ERC units to the 1990 utilization, as a percentage of system utilization. If, as calculated below, system-wide prior year utilization of ERC units exceeds systems-wide 1990 utilization of ERC units on a percentage basis, then paragraphs (e)(6)(ii) and (iii) of this section apply. If not, the ERC units are eligible to receive early reduction credits as calculated in paragraph (e)(6)(v)(A) of this section.
(ii) Comparison of the prior year average emission rate of all ERC units to the prior year average emission rate of all non-ERC units. If, as calculated below, the system-wide average SO2 emission rate of ERC units exceeds that of non-ERC units, then a unit's prior year utilization will be restricted in accordance with paragraph (e)(6)(iv) of this section. If not, then paragraph (iii) of this section applies.
(iii) Comparison of the emission rate of the non-ERC units in the prior year to the emission rate of the non-ERC units in 1990. If, as calculated in paragraph (ii) of this section, the prior year system average non-ERC SO2 emission rate increases above the 1990 system average non-ERC SO2 emission rate, as calculated below, then a unit's prior year utilization will be restricted in accordance with paragraph (e)(6)(iv) of this section. If not, the ERC units are eligible to receive early reduction credits as calculated in paragraph (e)(6)(v)(A) of this section.
(iv) Calculation of the utilization limit for restricted units. The limit on utilization for each unit eligible for early reduction credits subject to paragraphs (e)(6) (ii) and (iii) of this section will be calculated as follows:
