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 VI., of Rule 7, 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 23, 2019, requesting authority to revise Section VI., of Rule 7 (Metering) to include a new option for customers to receive a non-metered service for small usage devices.  In support of the Application, RMP states that the communications industry is currently expanding its infrastructure to meet demand, which requires the installation of small antennas. The areas where such antennas are installed are typically dense commercial areas. In such areas, there is often little space for meter pedestals or other non-pole mounted equipment. To address this constraint on metering the Company is proposing to provide flat rate service to small cell antennas and other loads with less than two kilowatts per point of connection.  The Company proposes that billing for these devices would be determined based on usage of the devices operating at 100% capacity.

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 15, 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. 20000-569-ET-19 (Record No. 15354) in your communications.

PUBLIC NOTICE

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 the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP of the Company) to decrease rates under Tariff Schedule 197, 2017 Federal Tax Cut Adjustment. The Wyoming Office of Consumer Advocate and Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers have intervened in this matter. The public hearing is set to commence on Wednesday, November 13, 2019, 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 or about December 22, 2017, federal tax legislation was enacted titled “An Act to Provide Reconciliation Pursuant to Titles II and IV of the Concurrent Resolution of the Budget for Fiscal Year 2018” (Tax Cuts and Jobs Act or TCJA). On April 17, 2019, RMP filed its Application requesting to decrease rates under Tariff Schedule 197, 2017 Federal Tax Cut Adjustment. Specifically, RMP requests to decrease rates by $0.04 million (or 0.05 percent) to deliver additional benefits from the TCJA. RMP states the $22.5 million refund continues to be reflected in the Schedule 197 rates by the Company is replacing the $3.6 million to offset the 2018 Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) with rates to refund to customers $3.96 million. The $3.96 million refund will partly offset the costs the Company seeks to recover in the 2019 ECAM application, which requested a total increase to customer rates of approximately $9.97 million. The Company calculated its proposed rate credits from Schedule 197 using the rate base allocation from the class cost of service study included in Docket No. 20000-469-ER-15.

RMP requested an effective date of June 15, 2019 for the proposed rates under Tariff Schedule 197.  The Application was approved on an interim basis on June 28, 2019 pending the Commission’s decision.

All interested persons are encouraged to attend the public hearing which will be conducted in accordance with the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission Rules and Special Regulations. Interested persons may appear and be heard, either in person or through counsel, as provided by Commission Rule.

The Commission’s hearings are open to all persons. If you wish to attend the hearing and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427 (Voice or TTY) in Cheyenne during regular business hours or write them at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002, to make arrangements. Communications impaired persons may also contact the Commission by accessing Wyoming Relay (TTY) by dialing 711. Please mention Docket No. 20000-560-EA-19 (Record No. 15240) in your correspondence.
