1. 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 an order authorizing the Company to recover costs incurred to comply with the reliable and dispatchable low-carbon energy standard pursuant to Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-18-101 and 37-18-102 and the Commission’s rules in Chapter 3, Section 38 Low-Carbon Energy Portfolio Standards.
2. RMP is a public utility, as defined in Wyo. Stat. §37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyo. Stat. §37-2-112.
3. On March 31, 2022, RMP filed an Application requesting the Commission issue an order approving its proposed Schedule 198 tariff and associated ratemaking treatment. RMP states it determined that a surcharge of 0.5 percent that collects approximately $3.1 million annually is appropriate since the request for proposal process proposed in the initial carbon capture, utilization and storage plan application will have an estimated cost of $1-2 million and results of the proposed request for proposal process to analyze the identified coal units for further carbon capture analysis are not yet known. RMP is requesting a rate effective date of December 1, 2022.
4. The Company began recording the deferred costs related to the reliable and dispatchable low-carbon energy standard pursuant to Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-18-101 and 37-18-102 and the Commission’s rules in Chapter 3, Section 38 Low-Carbon Energy Portfolio Standards to its Federal Energy Regulatory Commission account, 182.3 (Other Regulatory Assets) pursuant to the Commission’s approval on January 27, 2022, in Docket No. 20000-605-EA-21. RMP proposes a carrying charge of 7.192 percent, which is the weighted average cost of capital from the most recent Commission-approved rate case; Docket No. 20000-578-ER-20. Approximately $145,000 in incremental costs, comprised of consultant fees and other internal costs, have accrued at this time.

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 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. The public hearing is set to commence on Monday, April 25, 2022, at 9:00 a.m., in the Commission’s hearing room located at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
RMP is a public utility as defined in Wyo. Stat. § 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), 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).
In its Application, RMP states that the Foote Creek North Project is a time limited opportunity that provides 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 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. The Wyoming Office of Consumer Advocate, Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers, and Powder River Basin Resource Council intervened and requested a hearing.
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.

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, the Commission hereby gives notice of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for authority to Establish Intermediate Low-Carbon Energy Portfolio Standards pursuant to the provisions of Wyo. Stat. § 37-18-102 and Chapter 3, Section 38 of the Commission’s rules.
1. RMP is a public utility as defined by Wyo. Stat. § 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to the provisions of Wyo. Stat. § 37-2-112.
2. On March 31, 2022, RMP filed the Application, requesting authority to establish Intermediate Low-Carbon Portfolio Standards. The Application is responsive to the requirements of Wyo. Stat. § 37-18-102 and Chapter 3, Section 38 of the Commission’s rules. It addresses Dave Johnston Units 1-4; Jim Bridger Units 1-4; Naughton Units 1-2; and Wyodak Unit 1. These facilities are utility owned, coal-fired generation facilities.
3. The Company retained the services of Kiewit Engineering Group, Inc. (Kiewit) to evaluate potential carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) options for the previously identified generation facilities. Based upon the Kiewit report, the Company concluded that only Dave Johnston Unit 4 and Jim Bridger Units 3 and 4 warrant further consideration for potential CCUS technology additions.
4. The Report states that Dave Johnston Unit 4 is in favorable condition, has no co-ownership complications, and is currently under no federal closure or cease-coal commitments. It also states that Jim Bridger Units 3 and 4 benefit from previously installed SCR and FGD systems, are in close proximity to Carbon Dioxide (CO2) pipelines and sequestration fields. The Report also indicates the need for consideration of hazardous waste disposal locations. CCUS also requires increased water usage. The Company estimates the cost of the CCUS projects to range between $1.484 billion and $2.39 billion, and states that it may request a higher Return on Equity for CCUS projects.
