General Permits

Once it has been determined that a facility needs a permit through minor NSR permit applicability, the facility may opt for a general permit if it meets the applicability of the general permit itself. 

Virginia has four general permits:

  1. Non-Metallic Mineral Processing General Permit
  2. Biomass Pilot Test Facility General Permit
  3. Voluntary Demand Response Generator General Permit
  4. Emergency Generator General Permit
