(C) in the case of a suspension under paragraph (1)(A)(i), requirements that the suspension shall be inapplicable during any period during which fuels which would enable compliance with the suspended stationary source fuel or emission limitations are in fact reasonably available (as determined by the Administrator) to such person. Compliance " (c)(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2) of this subsection, a e, ex ension. ^^^ Admluistrator shall issue a compliance date extension to any fuelburning stationary source— " (A) which is prohibited from using petroleum products or natural gas by reason of an order which is in effect under section 2 (a) and (b) of the Energy Supply and Environmental Coordination Act of 1974, or " (B) which the Administrator determines began conversion to the use of coal as its primary energy source during the period beginning on September 15, 1973, and ending on March 15, 1974, and which, on or after September 15, 1973, converts to the use of coal as its primary energy source. If a compliance date extension is issued to a source, such source shall not, until January 1, 1979, be prohibited, by reason of the application of any air pollution requirement, from burning coal which is available to such source, except as provided in sioi^"^^" conver- y^iJ3gection (d)(3). For purposes of this paragraph, the term 'began conversion' means action by the source during the period beginning on September 15, 1973, and ending on March 15, 1974 (such as entering into a contract binding on such source for obtaining coal, or equipment or facilities to burn coal; expanding substantial sums to permit such source to burn coal; or applying for an air pollution variance to enable such source to burn coal) which the Administrator finds evidences a decision (made prior to March 15, 1974) to convert to burning coal as a result of the unavailability of an adequate supply of fuels required for compliance with the applicable implementation plan, and a good faith effort to expeditiously carry out such decision. Conditions. a^2)(A) A compliance date extension under paragraph (1) of this subsection may be issued to a source only if— (i) the Administrator finds that such source will not be able to burn coal which is available to such source in compliance with all applicable air pollution requirements without a compliance date extension, (ii) the Administrator finds that the source will be able during the period of the compliance date extension to comply with all the primary standard conditions which are required under subsection (d)(2) to be applicable to such source, and with the regional limitation if applicable to such source, and (iii) the source has submitted to the Administrator a plan for compliance for such source which the Administrator has approved. A plan submitted under clause (iii) of the preceding sentence shall be approved only if it meets the requirements of regulations prescribed under subparagraph (B). The Administrator shall approve or disapprove any such plan within 60 days after such plan is submitted. Regulations. u (^g-^ "J^QJ. j^tcr than 90 days after the date of enactment of this section, the Administrator shall prescribe regulations requiring that any schedule'!"^ source to which a compliance date extension applies submit and obtain approval of its means for and schedule of compliance with the require-
