Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules, the Commission hereby gives notice of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to construct new wind turbines and update collector lines at the existing Foote Creek II-IV Wind Energy Facility as more fully described below:
RMP is a public utility, as defined in Wyo. Stat. §37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), providing retail electric service under certificates of public convenience and necessity issued by the Commission. RMP is subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyo. Stat. §37-2-112.
On October 12, 2021, the Company filed an Application together with supporting testimony and exhibits requesting a CPCN to [i] acquire generation plant assets, [ii] construct new wind turbines and associated infrastructure to replace the 64 previously installed wind turbines; [iii] update existing 34.5 kilovolt (kV) collector lines and install new meteorological instrumentation and communication infrastructure; and [iv] make other upgrades, as necessary, including to existing switchgear and controls equipment and limited road realignments necessary for access to new turbine locations, at the existing Foote Creek II-IV project site (the Foote Creek North Project). The Company’s Application included a Petition for Confidential Treatment and Protective Order.
The existing Foote Creek II-IV facilities are owned by Terra-Gen, LLC (Terra-Gen). The Company has negotiated a purchase and sale option agreement (PSOA) with Terra-Gen to acquire all of its interests in the Foote Creek II-IV facilities. The acquisition will allow RMP to construct the Foote Creek North Project, upon Commission approval. RMP will acquire 100 percent of the Foote Creek II-IV wind energy assets and associated interest necessary for the site to become the Foote Creek North Project. The Foote Creek North Project will be co-located with the Company’s adjacent Foote Creek I wind energy project and will share its operation and maintenance facilities and certain site infrastructure. Once the Foote Creek North Project is complete, 100 percent of the output from the Foote North Project will be used to serve the Company’s customers.
In its Application, RMP states that the Foote Creek North Project is a time limited opportunity that provide benefits to customers by [i] making full use of existing Company wind energy lease rights at a previously developed wind energy facility to continue energy production using larger, more efficient turbines; and [ii] qualifying the new wind turbines for federal production tax credits (PTCs), which expire 10 years after a facility’s commercial operation date. To achieve these benefits, the Company estimates construction of the new turbines to be complete by October 2023. The estimated total cost for the Foote Creek North Project is approximately $82 million. RMP intends to finance the Foote Creek North Project through its normal internal and external sources of capital.
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 http://psc.wyo.gov. 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 November 26, 2021. 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. 20000-606-EA-21 in all correspondence with the Commission.
