PUBLIC NOTICE

The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved the Application of Questar Gas Company d/b/a Dominion Energy Wyoming (Dominion Energy or Company) for authority to adjust the amortization of the Conservation Enabling Tariff (CET) deferred account balance, which will appear on customer bills as an adjustment to the non-gas cost portion of the Company’s Wyoming General Service (GS) rates.

In the GS rate, the current CET surcharge is $0.05474 per dekatherm (Dth) for Block 1 (monthly usage up to 45 Dth) and $0.04869 per Dth for Block 2 (monthly usage above 45 Dth). In its Application, Dominion Energy represented that the CET accrual as of July 2019 ended in an under-collected balance of $566,573.19. In this filing, Dominion Energy proposes to implement a CET surcharge of $0.16102 per Dth for Block 1 and $0.14322 per Dth for Block 2. The net effect is an increase to the current GS rates. Exhibit 1.4 to the Application provides that a residential GS customer using 90 Dth annually will experience an increase of $9.57 annually, or 1.32% or an increase of $725.43 annually under current rates to $735.00 under the proposed rates.

Dominion Energy’s Application is on file at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming and at the Company’s business office at 1005 D Street, Rock Springs, Wyoming, and any interested person may inspect the Application during regular business hours or online at: http://psc.state.wy.us/.

Anyone who wants to file an intervention petition, request for a public hearing, or a statement, public comment or protest in this matter must file in writing with the Commission on or before November 1, 2019. A proposed intervention or request for hearing must set forth the grounds under which they are made and the position and interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. Please mention Docket No. 30010-185-GT-19 (Record No. 15344) in your communications.

If you want to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing that you will attend, or want to make a statement, a protest or a public comment, and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427, or write to the Commission at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002, to make arrangements.  Communications impaired persons may also contact the Commission by accessing Wyoming Relay at 711.

PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, notice is hereby given of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for authority to revise Section II. of Rule 6, as more fully described below.

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.

RMP filed its Application on September 12, 2019, requesting authority to revise Section II. of Rule 6 (Company’s Installation) to include a new option for customers to receive single phase 240/480 volt (240/480V) secondary service. According to RMP, approximately forty percent of its distribution lines are constructed as single phase power and the lack of three phase supply can create challenges for customers with equipment that requires three phase service. In particular, electric motors (typically used for irrigation, sewage lift stations, mine ventilation, etc.) have limited commercial availability in single phase ratings above 7.5 horsepower.

RMP states that the cost to extend three phase primary lines ranges from $60,000 to $150,000 per mile and approval of the Company’s proposal would reduce costs to provide this particular electrical service to the number of commercial applications that will benefit from the 240/480V option. RMP states that providing the service will have very little impact to the Company’s current construction standards, practices and inventory requirements.

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.

Anyone desiring to file a public comment, statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must do file with the Commission in writing on or before November 4, 2019. 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. 20000-567-ET-19 (Record No. 15349) in your communications.

Dated: October 4, 2019.

PUBLIC NOTICE

The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) has authorized Questar Gas Company d/b/a Dominion Energy Wyoming (Dominion or the Company) to pass-on to its customers a wholesale gas cost decrease of $0.09147 per dekatherm (Dth), effective October 1, 2019. This approval is subject to notice, protest, investigation, opportunity for hearing, change, refund, and such other orders as the Commission may deem appropriate.

A typical Dominion residential customer using an average of 90 Dth per year will see a net annual decrease of approximately $8.24, or 1.14%. Actual bills will vary with usage.

Pursuant to Commission Rule Chapter 3, Section 26, a utility may apply to pass on to its customers known or prospective wholesale commodity cost increases or decreases on a dollar-for-dollar basis and subject to public notice, opportunity for hearing, and refund.

The Application is on file at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and any interested person may inspect the Application during regular business hours or online at: http://psc.wyo.gov/.

Anyone desiring to file a request for a public hearing, intervention petition, statement, protest, or public comment in this matter must file in writing with the Commission on or before October 31, 2019.
