PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, notice is hereby given of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for authority to revise Rules 5 and 10 to protect the integrity of the Company’s service territory, as more fully described below:

  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 subject to the Commission's jurisdiction. Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-l-101(a)(vi)(C) and 37-2-112.
  2. On January 5, 2024, the Company filed an Application requesting the Commission approve revisions to Rule 5, regarding Customer Installation, and Rule 10, regarding Disconnection of Service. RMP states the revisions address the consumption of electricity purchased from the Company and transmitted beyond the tariffed service territory by way of customer owned infrastructure located behind the meter. The Company states these revisions will preserve its service territory integrity as well as that of other adjacent utilities.
  3. Previous settlements and allocation agreements resolved similar situations in the past. However, RMP is concerned about the potential recurrence of the same situation with no explicit authority to address such instances in the approved tariffs. Accordingly, the Company requests the proposed revisions to address such occurrences.
  4. The proposed revision to Rule 5 allows RMP to address customer owned electrical infrastructure that transmits electricity purchased from RMP beyond the Company’s authorized service territory. Specifically, the proposed tariff requires the customer to remedy the issue, enter into a Customer Allocation Agreement, or pay a Service Territory Extension Fee.
  5. The proposed revision to Rule 10 allows RMP to disconnect service, after notice, if the customer fails to remedy the issue as required in Rule 5.
  6. This is not a complete description of RMP’s Application. Interested persons may inspect the entire Application at RMP’s Wyoming offices and at the Commission’s offices during regular business hours or online at: https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx. (enter Record No. 17477). The Application may also be reviewed on line at: https://www.rockymountainpower.net/about/rates-regulation/wyoming-regulatory-filings.html.
  7. Anyone desiring to file a public comment, statement, protest, intervention petition, or request for a public hearing in this matter must file with the Commission in writing on or before February 19, 2024. Any intervention request filed with the Commission 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. 20000-657-ET-24 in your communications.
  8. If you wish to intervene or request a public hearing that you will attend, or wish to file a public comment, statement, or protest, and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427, or in writing at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002. Communications impaired persons may also contact the Commission through Wyoming Relay at 711.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, notice is hereby given of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for a Deferred Accounting Order to record a regulatory asset associated with incremental costs related to third-party liability in excess of $10 million dollars, as more fully described below:

  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 subject to the Commission's jurisdiction. Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-l-101(a)(vi)(C) and 37-2-112.
  2. On December 18, 2023, pursuant to Wyoming Statutes §§ 37-2-112 and 37-2-115, the Company filed an Application requesting the Commission issue a Deferred Accounting Order to record and defer a regulatory asset associated with incremental costs from increased premiums for third-party liability insurance, specifically wildfires. The deferral is for possible future recovery of costs.
  3. RMP states wildfire liability risk, like that associated with the third party claims from the September 2020 Oregon wildfires, are impacting the commercial insurance markets resulting in increased premiums. RMP additionally states that insurance is a required and prudent business expense. The costs identified, accounted for, and tracked are the total-Company insurance coverage costs that exceed the Company’s $10 million allocated costs included in the approved rate tariff.
  4. RMP is not currently seeking recovery of these costs from customers. The requested Deferred Accounting Order, if approved, will enable the Company to seek recovery in the future. If approved, deferred costs will be recorded in Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Account 182.3. Concurrent dockets, related to or in support of this filing, are pending review by the Commission.
  5. The total amount of the potential deferral is unknown. Current liabilities are estimated at approximately $122.4 million. Deferred accounting permits the Company to track the expenses resulting from increased excess liability related insurance premiums for potential future recovery.
  6. This is not a complete description of RMP’s Application. Interested persons may inspect the entire Application at RMP’s Wyoming offices and at the Commission’s offices during regular business hours or online at: https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx. (enter Record No. 17470). The Application may also be reviewed on line at: https://www.rockymountainpower.net/about/rates-regulation/wyoming-regulatory-filings.html.
  7. Anyone desiring to file a public comment, statement, protest, intervention petition, or request for a public hearing in this matter must file with the Commission in writing on or before February 9, 2024. Any intervention request filed with the Commission 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. 20000-654-EA-23 in your communications.
  8. If you wish to intervene or request a public hearing that you will attend, or wish to file a public comment, statement, or protest, and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427, or in writing at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002.

PUBLIC NOTICE

The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved the Application of Questar Gas Company, d/b/a Dominion Energy Wyoming (Dominion) to amortize the Energy Efficiency Services deferred account balance, resulting in a decrease of $0.01642 per Dth, effective for usage on and after January 1, 2024. The proposed change is based on customer participation in several energy efficiency programs offered by the Company.

Dominion’s proposal results in an annual decrease of $1.32 or 0.12% before taxes, for a typical residential customer using 80 Dth. However, when combined with other proposed rate changes taking effect on January 1, 2024, the net result is an increase of $10.65 or 0.98% before taxes, for a typical residential customer using 80 Dth annually. Actual bills will vary with usage.

Dominion’s Application is available at the Commission’s office or online at: https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx (Enter Record No. 17461).

Anyone desiring to file a statement, intervention petition, protest, or request for hearing must file with the Commission in writing, on or before February 12, 2024.
