GHGRP Electrical Equipment Production and Use
This source category includes electrical transmission and distribution systems and facilities that manufacture or refurbish electrical equipment.
The electrical transmission and distribution subsector consists of all electric transmission and distribution equipment insulated with or containing sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) or perfluorocarbons (PFCs) within an electric power system. This equipment includes but is not limited to gas-insulated substations; circuit breakers; switchgear, including closed-pressure and hermetically sealed-pressure switchgear; gas-insulated lines containing SF6 or PFCs; and gas containers such as pressurized cylinders, gas carts, electric power transformers, and other containers of SF6 or PFCs. Emissions occur during installation, use, servicing, and decommissioning of the equipment.
The electrical equipment manufacturing subsector includes facilities that manufacture or refurbish electrical equipment. At these facilities, emissions occur during equipment testing and filling.
