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 authority to increase rates to recover deferred Net Power Costs (NPC) under Tariff Schedule 95; and to decrease rates pursuant to Tariff Schedule 93, Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emission allowances. The public hearing is set to commence on Monday, November 30, 2022, at 9:00 a.m., in the Commission’s hearing room located at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, in Cheyenne, 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 subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. (Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), 37-2-112).
  2. On April 15, 2022, the Company submitted an Application requesting authority to revise rates pursuant to two different rate schedules: [i] its Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) Tariff Schedule 95, requesting authority to collect approximately 25.9 million in deferred NPC; and, [ii] its REC and SO2 revenue adjustment mechanism (RRA) Tariff Schedule 93, requesting authority to refund approximately $2.7 million to customers to reflect the sale of RECs and SO2 emission allowances. The total Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) deferral from calendar year 2021 is a charge consisting of the following: [i] deferred ECAM costs of $25.8 million after the applicable percent sharing band; [ii] accrued interest of approximately $0.6 million; and [iii] a credit of approximately $0.6 million to true-up revenues from the 2020 ECAM (Docket No. 20000-582-EM-20); and, the 2021 ECAM (Docket No. 20000-599-EM-21). The Company proposes to collect the deferral balance of $25.9 million over a 12-month period beginning July 1, 2022. The Company requested interim approval of the proposed net increase, effective July 1, 2022, subject to further review.
  3. The following table summarizes the proposed price changes by tariff rate schedule. Within each rate schedule, the percentage change to individual customers may be higher or lower than the average due to rate design, customer load factors, and usage characteristics. The combined effect of the 2022 RRA and ECAM in this Application represents an overall proposed rate decrease of approximately $26.3 million or approximately 4.0 percent.
