(2) sold on comparable contractual terms and specification; and

(3) of an acceptable quality for use in the new coal-fired electricity generating facility.

This section shall not apply if the use or purchase of Kansas coal will result in the owner or operator of the new coal-fired electricity generating facility violating its air permit or a contractual obligation to which the owner or operator is subject.
