The public hearing is set to commence on Monday, October 24, 2022, at 9:00 a.m., in the Commission’s hearing room located at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

2. 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.

3. 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 Wyoming Statute § 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.

4. 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.

5. 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. The Wyoming Office of Consumer Advocate, Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers, Powder River Basin Resource Council, Big Muddy Operating LLC and its wholly-owned subsidiary Glenrock Energy, LLC  intervened and requested a hearing.
