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 or the Company) for approval of the 2020 Inter-Jurisdictional Cost Allocation Agreement. The Wyoming Office of Consumer Advocate and the Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers have intervened in this matter. The public hearing is set to commence on Monday, March 9, 2020, 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, which provides electric service to retail customers through its RMP division in the states of Wyoming, Utah and Idaho through its Pacific Power division in the states of Oregon, California and Washington. 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 December 3, 2019, RMP submitted its Application, together with supporting testimony and exhibits, requesting approval of its 2020 Protocol. RMP states that PacifiCorp owns substantial generation and transmission facilities. Augmented with wholesale power purchases and long-term transmission contracts, these facilities operate as a single system on an integrated basis to provide service to customers in a cost-effective manner.  PacifiCorp recovers the costs of owning and operating its generation and transmission system in retail prices established from time to time in state regulatory proceedings.

Since all of RMP’s generation and transmission resources and other common or general functions are considered to be used to service RMP’s customers in all of its state jurisdictions, it is necessary to determine what portion of these costs should be allocated to customers in the state for which prices are being established. RMP states if different state commissions make different decision regarding what resources should be included in PacifiCorp’s rates, or if different state commissions adopt different policies for allocating the costs of resources among states, RMP may not be afforded an opportunity to recover its full cost of providing electric service. 

After approximately three years of discussions and negotiations, the interested parties reached an agreement that led to the 2020 Protocol agreement being present in this docket.   The 2020 Protocol will allocate costs among RMP’s multi-state service territory and ensure that the Company operates its generation and transmission system on an integrated basis to achieve a least-cost, least-risk resource portfolio, while allowing each state to pursue, independently, its ratemaking policies.

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. 20000-572-EA-19 (Record No. 15400) in your correspondence. If you wish to listen to the hearing scheduled in this matter go to http://psc.wy.us at the appropriate time and follow the instructions to connect to the hearing.

The expansion of the substation and related facilities as general system improvements, has an estimated total cost of $10.5 million.

The Company intends to finance the Project through its normal internal and external sources of capital, including net cash flow from operating activities, public and private debt offerings, the issuance of commercial paper, the use of unsecured revolving credit facilities, capital contributions, and other sources. The financial impact will not impair the Company’s ability to continue to provide safe and reliable electricity service at reasonable rates. The Company is not requesting ratemaking treatment at this time.

According to RMP, the proposed expansion is required to provide adequate reliability in response to the request from an existing large industrial customer for a load increase.
