(A) A permit to install issued under Chapter 3734. of the Revised Code for a new facility shall terminate three years after the effective date of the permit to install if the owner or operator has neither undertaken a continuing program of installation nor entered into a binding contractual obligation to undertake and complete within a reasonable time a continuing program of installation of the new facility.
(B) The owner or operator may request an extension of the termination date. Such request shall be submitted to the director and provide justification for the extension of time and an analysis demonstrating that the facility meets all applicable siting criteria and design standards established in the rules in effect on the date the permit to install is to expire.
(C) The director may extend the termination date of a permit to install for a period of time not to exceed twelve months if the director determines that the owner or operator has adequately justified an extension of time and has demonstrated that the facility meets all applicable siting criteria and design standards established in the rules in effect on the date the permit to install is to expire.
