PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules, notice is hereby given of Rocky Mountain Power’s (RMP or the Company) Application to decrease rates under Tariff Schedule 197, 2017 Federal Tax Cut Adjustment.

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 May 16, 2018, the Company submitted an application proposing to return the benefits of the TCJA. Specifically, RMP requested Commission approval of [i] proposed Tariff Schedule 197 to authorize the Company to reduce currents rates addressing the benefits from the TCJA; and [ii] approve the Stipulation entered into between RMP and Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers. The Company proposed rate credits that reduce Wyoming customer retail rates by approximately $26.1 million (3.8%). RMP stated the total reduction included an annual credit allocation of $22.5 million in Tariff Schedule 197 to all retail tariff customers using the class cost of service from RMP’s most recent general rate case (Sub 469) as well as an additional allocation of $3.6 million to offset the recent 2018 ECAM docket. By its Memorandum Opinion, Findings and Order Approving Stipulation issued on March 15, 2019, in Sub 469, the Commission approved the part of the Stipulation in which the parties agreed to refund $22.5 million of the tax benefits to customers until the next general rate case using the average-of-period rate base calculations and rejected the part of the Stipulation in which parties agreed to use some of the benefits to automatically offset future costs related to the ECAM and Energy Vision 2020 projects.

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 seek 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 Sub 469.

RMP is requesting an effective date of June 15, 2019 for the proposed rates under Tariff Schedule 197. If approved, the proposed rates will result in an overall customer rate reduction of approximately $0.4 million.

This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the Application at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming during regular business hours. The Application may also be viewed on the Commission’s data management system at https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx.

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 June 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.

PUBLIC NOTICE

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) requesting authority to increase rates on deferred Net Power Costs (NPC) pursuant to Tariff Schedule 95; and to decrease rates pursuant to Tariff Schedule 93, Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) and Sulfur Dioxide (SO2) emission allowances, as more fully described below:

RMP is a public utility, as defined in W.S. §37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), providing retail electric public utility service under certificates of public convenience and necessity issued by the Commission.  RMP is subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to W.S. §37-2-112.

On April 15, 2019, the Company submitted an Application together with testimony, exhibits and revised tariff sheets requesting authority to revise and change rates pursuant to two different rate schedules: [i] its Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) Tariff Schedule 95, requesting approval to increase rates by $6.55 million to recover deferred NPC; and, [ii] its REC and SO2 revenue adjustment mechanism (RRA) Tariff Schedule 93, requesting approval to decrease rates by $132 thousand to reflect the sale of RECs and SO2  emission allowances.  The total ECAM deferral from calendar year 2018 was a charge of approximately $6.55 million, which consists of: [i] deferred ECAM costs after the 30% sharing band; [ii] accrued interest of approximately $209 thousand; [iii] a credit of approximately $55 thousand from the 2017 ECAM; [iv] an increase of approximately $170 thousand from the 2018 ECAM; and, [v] a credit of $100 thousand related to the settlement of the 2017 ECAM.  RMP requests that the Commission approve the proposed increase on an interim basis, effective June 15, 2019, subject to further review and hearing.

The following table summarizes the proposed price changes by tariff rate schedule.  Within each rate schedule, the percentage change to individual customers may be higher or lower than the average due to rate design, customer load factors, and usage characteristics.  The combined effect of the 2019 RRA and ECAM in this Application represents an overall proposed rate increase of approximately $9.82 million or approximately 1.44 percent.
