Construction and Modification Application Fees
Disclaimer: The information found on this page is current as of April 3, 2018 . If any differences exist between the information on this page and the effective Tennessee Comprehensive Rules and Regulations, the Tennessee Comprehensive Rules and Regulations take precedence.
Rule 1200-03-26-.02 of the Tennessee Comprehensive Rules and Regulations provides the authority for the Division to assess fees for issuance of permits to construct and modify air pollution sources. Sources already paying Title V fees are not assessed a fee for construction or modification of any air contaminant sources, but new facilities that will be subject to Title V permitting and existing sources modifying their operations such that they become subject to Title V permitting are assessed construction and modification application fees until they begin paying Title V annual emission fees.
Construction permit application fees are based on the anticipated maximum emission rate of all regulated pollutants emitted by the source combined. Emissions are not double-counted if they fall into more than one category, such as a hazardous air pollutant that is also a volatile organic compound. The fees in the table below apply to non-Title V sources (sources that do not pay Title V [major source] annual emission fees at the time of application).
To modify a source, the non-Title V source must pay a permit processing fee equal to one-half the fee in the table below, not to exceed $500, based on the change in the anticipated maximum emission rate.
|Anticipated Maximum Emission Rate (Tons/Year)||Permit Fee|
|Less than 10||$ 100|
|10 to less than 100||$ 500|
|100 to less than 250||$1,000|
|250 to less than 500||$2,000|
|500 to less than 1000||$3,000|
|1,000 to less than 5,000||$4,000|
|5,000 or greater||$5,000|
APC is considering changes to the construction and modification permit application fee rates as part of the non-Title V stakeholder process. For information regarding this stakeholder process click here
