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 Questar Gas Company d/b/a Dominion Energy Wyoming (Dominion or the Company), for approval of the 2024 budget and modifications to the ThermWise® Energy Efficiency Programs.

1. Dominion is currently a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy Questar Corporation, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of the parent company, Dominion Energy, Inc.; a Virginia corporation engaged in the business of supplying energy and natural gas services in 16 states including Wyoming. Dominion serves approximately 28,000 customers in southwestern Wyoming, including customers in Rock Springs, Green River, Kemmerer, Diamondville, and Evanston. Dominion is a public utility subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C) and 37-2-112.

2. On October 31, 2023, Dominion submitted its Application requesting approval of its 2024 budget and modifications to the ThermWise® Energy Efficiency Programs. The Company requests an effective date of January 1, 2024.

3. Dominion proposes continuing the five existing ThermWise® Energy Efficiency Programs (Programs): [i] Appliance Rebates Program; [ii] Builder Rebates Program; [iii] Business Rebates Program; [iv] Home Energy Plan Program; and [v] Weatherization Rebates Program.

4. In addition to making minor tariff language changes to improve accuracy in each of the ThermWise® Programs, the Company proposes modification or elimination of certain rebate-qualifying equipment specifications including the elimination of HVAC monitoring/diagnostic systems and reclassification of duel-fuel heating systems. Dominion also proposes the addition of a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) system rebate and allowing annual participation in Tier 1, 2, and 3 boiler tune-up measures for businesses.

5. Dominion projects the total 2024 budget for the Programs and Market Transformation Initiative to be $118,220, a decrease of 24% from the 2023 budget. Dominion states the proposed budget decrease is primarily due to lower forecasted 2024 participation in the Appliance, Builder, Weatherization, and Business programs than was projected in 2023. The Company projects a total natural gas savings of 3, 949 Dth per year, 31% below its projected 2023 natural gas savings estimates.

6. This is not a complete description of the Application. Dominion’s Application is available for inspection at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, or online at: https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx (Enter Record No. 17442).

A proposed intervention or request for hearing shall set forth the grounds, and the position and interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. Please mention Docket No. 30010-219-GT-23 in your communications.
