- 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. Wyoming Statute §§ 37-l-101(a)(vi)(C) and 37-2-112.
- On April 12, 2023, RMP submitted its Application requesting the Commission’s approval of its proposal to extend the 2020 Protocol through December 31, 2025, effective January 1, 2024.
- PacifiCorp serves customers in all six of its jurisdictions as a single system, and can access resources across the West and multiple trading hubs to minimize off-system wheeling costs to provide value to our customers. RMP states PacifiCorp uses single agreement to govern the allocation of the costs and benefits of shared generation and transmission resources among the states to realize the benefits of planning and operating as one system. An inter-jurisdictional cost allocation methodology is used to allocate these system costs and benefits. This methodology is negotiated among a diverse array of stakeholders representing interests in PacifiCorp’s service territory. The currently approved methodology is the 2020 Protocol.
- The 2020 Protocol was designed as a temporary cost allocation methodology that would expire on December 31, 2023. After the execution of the 2020 Protocol, the Framework Issues Workgroup began investigating and working through issues to develop the successor to the 2020 Protocol. New federal legislation and environmental rule changes are expected to impact the costs and benefits of PacifiCorp’s generation fleet. Potential alternative resource allocation methodologies have been identified and the Parties would like to continue to explore these options. As a result, the Parties are requesting a two-year extension to the 2020 Protocol.
- 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. 17280).

- 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 a non-situs Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to construct its Boardman-to-Hemingway transmission line (Application). The public hearing is set to commence on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., in the Commission’s hearing room located at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
- 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).
- On February 6, 2023, the Company filed an Application, together with supporting testimony and exhibits, requesting the Commission grant a non-situs CPCN to construct the Boardman-to-Hemingway transmission line (segment H of the Energy Gateway Project) (B2H).
- On February 14, 2023, the Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers (WIEC) submitted a Petition to Intervene and Request for Hearing, which the Commission then granted via Order issued on February 17, 2023.
- On April 17, 2023, RMP and WIEC (the Parties) filed a Stipulation and Settlement Agreement (Agreement), resolving all outstanding issues raised in this proceeding. The Parties requested the Commission issue an Order approving the terms of the Agreement following a hearing during which testimony will be offered in support of its terms.
- The Company’s proposed Boardman-to-Hemingway is an approximately 300-mile-long, 500-kV transmission line that will extend from a proposed switching station near Boardman, Oregon to the existing Hemingway Substation located in Owyhee County, Idaho. Approximately 274 miles of the transmission line is located in five Oregon counties: Malheur, Baker, Union, Umatilla, and Morrow Counties. A 24-mile segment of the Project will be in Owyhee County in Idaho. The project also consists of a newly constructed switching station near Boardman, Oregon, ten communication stations within the right-of-way of the transmission line, and construction of the Midline Series Capacitor substation.
- The Company has partnered with Idaho Power Company (IPC) and the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) to develop the Project. IPC is the overall project manager, responsible for permitting, design, procurement, and construction. IPC will fund and own 45.45 percent and the Company will fund and own 54.55 percent.
- The Company states the proposed project is necessary for the following reasons: 1) it increases the ability to move resources across and between both of the Company’s balancing authority areas and will allow the Company to export 818 megawatts (MW) of additional generation capacity from Wyoming, Utah, and Idaho generators to Oregon, Washington, and California customers; 2) it enables the Company to avoid higher cost transmission and generation investments to serve the system, including Wyoming, that would be required absent B2H; and 3) it reduces the cost of third-party transmission service included in the net power costs allocated to Wyoming retail customers. The Company states that construction of B2H is expected to produce total-system cost savings of $1.7 billion. The Company states that IPC must begin construction in July 2023 to have the project come into service by 2026.
- The Company expects its share of the estimated total cost of the project to be between $800 and $900 million, which is estimated to increase Wyoming customer rates by an estimated 1.95 percent once the Company proposes to include the costs of the project in a future general rate case. The Company intends to finance the project through its normal internal and external sources of capital.
- 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.

- On April 17, 2023, RMP filed an Application requesting authority to revise rates pursuant to two different rate schedules. The Company proposes to increase its Tariff Schedule 95 Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) rates by approximately $50.3 million to recover deferred NPC. The Company also proposes to decrease its Tariff Schedule 93 REC and SO2 Revenue Adjustment Mechanism (RRA) rates by approximately $1.5 million to account for sales of RECs and SO2 emission allowances. The Company requests interim approval of the proposed rates effective for usage on and after July 1, 2022, subject to further review.
- 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.
