Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules and Special Regulations, notice is hereby given of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for review of the 2020 Decommissioning Studies and Incremental Decommissioning costs, as more fully described below.

RMP is a public utility as defined by Wyo. Stat. § 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyo. Stat. § 37-2-112. 

On December 3, 2019, the Company filed the 2020 Inter-Jurisdictional Cost Allocation Agreement (“2020 Protocol”) notifying the Commission, inter alia, that the Company would undertake a contractor-assisted engineering study of decommissioning costs to be used to determine the amount of Decommissioning Cost responsibility to be allocated to the states. On January 16, 2020, and on March 16, 2020, in accordance with the 2020 Protocol, RMP filed the confidential Decommissioning Studies for the coal-fueled generation resources as informational filings in Docket No. 20000-539-EA-18 (2018 Depreciation Study). The Decommissioning Studies provided updated costs to decommission the coal-fueled generation resources that included plant demolition, ash pile and ash pond abatement and closure, asbestos and other hazardous materials abatement and remediation, and final site cleanup and restoration as applicable to each plant. On April 20, 2020, the Company filed a Stipulation in the 2018 Depreciation Study proceeding that resolved all disputed matters with two exceptions. One exception was the treatment of the updated decommissioning costs from the Decommissioning Studies, which were to be addressed by any party in the Company’s 2020 general rate case filed on March 2, 2020. The Commission issued a written order approving the Stipulation on December 18, 2020.

On March 2, 2020, RMP filed a general rate case (Docket No. 20000-578-ER-20 or “2020 GRC”) that incorporated the depreciation rates from the Commission approved Stipulation in the 2018 Depreciation Study. Also, in the 2020 GRC, the Company included an adjustment for the incremental costs related to the Decommissioning Studies. The Commission issued a Memorandum Opinion, Findings and Order (2020 GRC Order) on July 15, 2021, in the 2020 GRC. In the 2020 GRC Order, the incremental decommissioning costs were approved for inclusion in the revenue requirement on an interim basis with the caveat that a separate application be filed. Specifically, the Commission directed the Company to file an Application to allow “comment, protest, intervention, review, adjustment and potential refund” of the decommissioning costs approved on an interim basis in the 2020 GRC Order.

RMP filed this Application on January 14, 2022, pursuant to paragraph 211 in the 2020 GRC Order for review of the 2020 Decommissioning Studies and Incremental Decommissioning costs, and to allow comment, protest, intervention, review, adjustment and potential refund of the decommissioning costs approved on an interim basis in the 2020 GRC Order. The Company also provided an update for certain non-asbestos related asset retirement obligations (AROs), including costs to comply with coal combustion residual regulations and certain other decommissioning-related costs. The updated AROs result in an increase in PacifiCorp’s ARO costs of approximately $7.7 million. The updated ARO costs have increased from the level approved by the Commission in the 2020 GRC, but the Company does not intend to request an increase to customer rates at this time. Rather, the Company believes the level of decommissioning costs included in Wyoming customer rates is reasonable. RMP states maintaining the level of decommissioning costs currently within customer rates is in the public interest and results in just and reasonable rates. The Company requests that the Commission approve the interim rates on a final basis.

This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the Application at RMP’s business offices throughout Wyoming and at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours or at http://psc.wyo.gov.

Anyone desiring to file a public comment, statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must file with the Commission in writing on or before March 4, 2022. 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.

If you wish to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing which you will attend and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, call the Commission at (307) 777-7427 or write to the Commission, 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002. Communications-impaired persons may contact the Commission through Wyoming Relay at 711. Please mention Docket No. 20000-609-EA-22 (Record No. 16986) in your communications.

Dated: February 3, 2022.
