(2) The greenhouse gas emissions standard applies only to carbon dioxide emissions.
(3) For purposes of applying the emissions standard to cogeneration facilities, the Public Utility Commission shall establish an output-based methodology to ensure that the calculation of emissions of greenhouse gases for cogeneration facilities recognizes the total usable energy output of the process and includes all greenhouse gases emitted by the facility in the production of both electrical and thermal energy.
