EPA delays deadline for final rule on RICE
Originally published January 3, 2013
The Environmental Protection Agency announced in December that it would take an additional month, until Jan. 14, to release its revised final rule on reciprocating internal combustion engines (RICE). These units often are used as backup generators and sometimes are used during demand-response events.
The rule is expected to expand the number of hours that RICE units are allowed to operate. Dec. 14 was the EPA's original deadline for issuing a final rule.
