NOTICE AND ORDER SETTING PUBLIC HEARING

  1. Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, notice is hereby given that a public hearing is scheduled regarding Rocky Mountain Power’s (RMP or the Company) Application for certificates of public convenience and necessity for the Rock Creek I and Rock Creek II wind projects and the associated transmission infrastructure for interconnection. The public hearing is set to commence on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in the Commission’s hearing room located at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
  2. RMP is a division of PacifiCorp, an Oregon corporation, engaged in the business of supplying electric utility service to customers throughout its six-state service territory, including Wyoming. RMP is a public utility, subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. (Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-l-101(a)(vi)(C) and 37-2-112).
  3. On August 10, 2022, RMP filed the Application requesting CPCNs to: [i] acquire wind turbines and associated infrastructure for the Rock Creek I wind project, a new 190-megawatt wind energy facility; [ii] acquire wind turbines and associated infrastructure for the Rock Creek II wind project, a new 400-megawatt wind energy facility; [iii] construct upgrades to portions of its transmission system to interconnect the Rock Creek I and II wind projects.
  4. On August 23, 2022, the Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers submitted a Petition to Intervene and Request for Hearing, which the Commission then granted via Order issued on September 2, 2022.
  5. The Company’s proposed Rock Creek I and Rock Creek II facilities are located in Carbon County and Albany County, Wyoming, East of the town of Arlington and South of the town of Rock River. The facilities are sited in the drainages of Cooper Creek and Four Mile Creek, which encompass Diamond Reservoir, King Reservoir Number 1, and Dutton Creek Reservoir, to the North of Interstate Highway 80. The proposed wind facilities each consist of: [i] wind turbine generators and tower structures; [ii] an electrical collector system; [iii] a collector substation; [iv] access roads; [v] wind turbine generator foundations with base pads; [vi] an operation and maintenance building; [vii] communication equipment; [viii] a supervisory control and operating status data acquisition control system; [ix] main power transformers; [x] meteorological evaluation towers; and [xi] 230-kilovolt transmission lines from the wind facilities to existing substations.
  6. The Company proposes to interconnect the Rock Creek I facility via an approximately 9-mile, 230-kilovolt transmission line beginning at the wind facility’s new collector substation and running generally northwest to the Company’s Foote Creek substation located approximately three miles north of Arlington, Wyoming. The Company proposes to interconnect the Rock Creek II facility via an approximately 38-mile, 230-kilovolt transmission line beginning at the wind facility’s new collector substation and running generally north/northwest to the Company’s Aeolus substation located approximately 11 miles northwest of Medicine Bow.
  7. The Company also proposes to construct upgrades to portions of its transmission system to interconnect the Rock Creek I and Rock Creek II wind facilities consisting of: [i] expansion of the existing Foote Creek substation; [ii] expansion of the existing Freezeout substation located approximately 10 miles northwest of Medicine Bow, Wyoming; [iii] expansion of the existing Aeolus substation; and [iv] construction of approximately 3.5 miles of 230-kilovolt transmission line from the Aeolus substation to the Freezeout substation.
  8. The Company states the proposed wind projects are necessary resource additions, designed to fill short and long-term resource need, were selected as the least-cost, least-risk resources to meet the Company’s resource need, reduce the Company’s reliance on market purchases to meet load and are critical to ensure resource adequacy in the region. The Company estimates construction to begin in 2023, Rock Creek I to be in service in December 2024 and Rock Creek II to be in service in September 2025. The Company states the total cost of the wind projects and associated transmission system upgrades is expected to exceed one billion dollars. RMP states it intends to finance the proposed projects through its normal internal and external sources of capital.
  9. All interested persons are encouraged to attend the public hearing which will be conducted in accordance with the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act, Wyoming Public Service Commission Rules. All interested persons may appear and be heard, in person, by video or telephone conference, or through counsel appearing in person or by video or telephone conference.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules, notice is hereby given of Rocky Mountain Power’s (RMP or the Company) Application to convert the primary fuel source from coal to natural gas for Units 1 and 2 of the Jim Bridger Power Plant located near Rock Springs in Sweetwater County, Wyoming.

  1. RMP is a division of PacifiCorp, an Oregon corporation, engaged in the business of supplying electric utility service to customers throughout its six-state service territory, including Wyoming. RMP is a public utility, as defined by Wyoming Statute § 37-l-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyoming Statute § 37-2-112.
  2. On December 9, 2022, RMP submitted its Application requesting the Commission’s approval of its proposed conversion of the fuel source used for Jim Bridger Units 1 and 2 from coal to natural gas pursuant to Commission Rule Chapter 3 Section 21(f). The Company’s proposed conversion of Jim Bridger Units 1 and 2 to natural gas includes: 1) construction of a new natural gas pipeline to and within the power plant’s property to allow for natural gas delivery; 2) construction of new gas line heaters and a new regulator station to control the pressure being introduced into the burners; 3) new natural gas burners and ignitors to allow for natural gas firing and electrical generation at an estimated 531-539 MW for each unit; 4) primary air fan duct modifications; and 5) distributed control systems modifications.
  3. The Jim Bridger Power Plant consists of four generating units and is jointly owned by PacifiCorp and Idaho Power Company. PacifiCorp has two-thirds ownership and is the operator of the Jim Bridger facility. The Company states the total capital cost of the conversion of Jim Bridger Units 1 and 2 to natural gas is approximately $28 million including Idaho Power Company’s share. PacifiCorp’s total-Company share of the cost is approximately $18.7 million. The Company states its proposed fuel conversion process is expected to begin in November 2023 and currently includes plans to take Jim Bridger Units 1 and 2 offline concurrently at the end of December 2023 for conversion and then entered back in service in May 2024. The Company states that if converted to natural gas, both units would operate through 2034.
  4. The Company states the proposed natural gas conversion of Jim Bridger Units 1 and 2 was identified in PacifiCorp’s 2021 Integrated Resource Plan as the least-cost, least-risk option for the Company and its customers. The Company also states the conversion has minimal cost, requires minimal construction and can allow the Company to continue providing electrical generation for its customers from this existing power plant for which it already has a CPCN while satisfying its emissions control obligations.
  5. This is not a complete description of RMP’s Application. You may review the Application at RMP’s Wyoming offices and at the Commission’s office in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during business hours or online at: https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx (enter Record No. 17212).
  6. Anyone desiring to file a statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must do so, in writing, on or before January 30, 2023. Petitions shall set forth the grounds of the proposed intervention or request for hearing as well as the position and the interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. Please mention Docket No. 20000-628-EA-22 in all correspondence with the Commission.
  7. If you wish to participate in this matter and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427, or write to the Commission at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002, to make arrangements.
