Base fee

$3,000

Supplementary fee for 150 perpetual P credits

+$7,000

Total fee

= $10,000

2. Example 2. The applicant is submitting an application for nutrient credit certification of a nutrient credit-generating project that generated credits with a five-year term. The number of potential nutrient credits calculated is 275. The required fee is calculated as follows:

Base fee

$3,000

Supplementary fee for 1 to 100 credits

+(100*5*$4)=$2,000

Supplementary fee for 101 to 200 credits

+(100*5*$3)=$1,500

Supplementary fee for 201 to 275 credits

+ (75*5*$2)= $750

Total fee

= $7,250

3. Example 3. The applicant is submitting a renewal application for annual credits generated at a nutrient credit-generating project for a five-year term. The number of annual credits being renewed for another term is 165. The required fee is calculated as follows:

Base fee

$1,000

Supplementary fee for 1 to 100 credits

+(100*5*$4)=$2,000

Supplementary fee for 101 to 200 credits

+(65*5*$3)=$975

Total fee

= $3,975

4. Example 4. The applicant is submitting an application for nutrient credit certification of a nutrient credit-generating project that generates credits with a five-year term. The number of potential nutrient credits calculated is 1000. The required fee is calculated as follows:

Base fee

$3,000

Supplementary fee for 1 to 100 credits

+(100*5*$4)=$2,000

Supplementary fee for 101 to 200 credits

+(100*5*$3)=$1,500

Supplementary fee for 201 to 300 credits

+(100*5*$2)=$1,000

Supplementary fee for 301 to 1000 credits

+(700*5*$1)=$3,500

Total

Total fee

= $11,000
