PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules and Regulations, notice is hereby given of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) to remove existing wind turbines, construct new wind turbines and update collector lines at its Foote Creek wind energy site, 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.

On February 5, 2019, the Company submitted an Application together with testimony, and exhibits requesting the Commission grant a CPCN to remove existing wind turbines, construct new wind turbines and update collector lines at its Foote Creek wind energy site.

Specifically, RMP requests the Commission grant a CPCN to [i] construct approximately 12 new wind turbines and replace the Company’s 68 existing wind turbines; [ii] update existing 34.5 kilovolt (“kV”) collector lines; and [iii] other project site upgrades including a switchgear and controls enclosure and limited road realignments necessary for access to the new turbine locations, at the existing Foote Creek I Wind Energy Facility1 (the Project).

The preliminary estimated total cost for installation of the new turbines is approximately $60.0 million, and the preliminary estimated total cost for removing the 68 existing turbines is approximately $4.0 million. These values may change as final construction plans are developed and turbine supply and construction contracts are executed.

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.

Construction of any necessary new roads, turbine foundations, and upgrades to the existing collector system will begin in the summer of 2019.  Erection of the new turbines will begin as early as site conditions allow in the spring of 2020 in order to avoid extreme winter weather and high wind conditions.  Construction of the new turbines is estimated to be complete by October 2020 and commercial operation of the new turbines before January 1, 2021.

The Company also requests authority to continue to recover any remaining book balance of its ownership interest in the turbines that will be replaced as included in the 2018 depreciation study in Docket No. 20000-539-EA-18. 

According to RMP, the Project is a time-limited opportunity that provides benefits to customers by [i] increasing energy production with larger, more efficient turbines; [ii] reducing operating costs; and [iii] qualifying the new wind turbines for federal production tax credits, which expire 10 years after a facility’s commercial operation date. To achieve the full production tax credit benefits, the Company must complete the Project by the end of 2020.

This is not a complete description of RMP’s Application.  Interested persons may inspect the entire Application at RMP’s Wyoming offices and at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours.  The Application may also be reviewed on line at http://www.pacificorp.com.

Anyone desiring to file a public comment, statement, protest, intervention petition or request for a public hearing in this matter must file with the Commission in writing on or before February 22, 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 that you will attend, or you wish to file a public comment, statement, or protest, 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. Please mention Docket No. 20000-553-EN-19 (Record No. 15202) in your communications.

The meeting was opened by Chairman Burnett and led those present in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Chairman Burnett requested approval of the agenda.  Commissioner Vickrey moved the agenda be accepted.  Commissioner Rawhouser seconded the motion.  Motion carried unanimously.

Maintenance Supervisor, Andre Irey met with the Board and requested a donation of sick leave for an employee who had shoulder surgery and was going to be short sick time for the current pay period from another employee who had a change of status at the beginning of the month and no longer had access to sick leave.  Commissioner Bousman stated he had concern about the donation and stated he would be more comfortable with the donation of sick leave coming from an employee who had current sick leave rather than one whose sick leave disappeared due to the change of status.  Chairman Burnett asked Matt and the Clerk if this situation had been addressed in the past.  Both said it had with Board approval.  Commissioner Bousman made the motion to approve sick leave donated from Andre contingent upon discussion with the Auditor regarding the donation from the employee with the change of status.  Commission Rawhouser seconded the motion. Motion carried unanimously.

Chairman Burnett addressed the Board regarding the Agenda Request Form and invited the Board for comment and suggestions.  Commissioner Bousman stated the Commission has always allowed the public to address the Board even if they weren’t on the agenda and would not like to see this practice go away.  Chairman Burnett said the public would still be allowed to address the board, time allowing and the intent of the Agenda Request Form was to help the Board be better prepared before meetings and give the public broader access to be on the agenda.

Motion carried unanimously.

Commissioner Noble made a motion to approve CTC’s recommendation that the county pursue detailed contract negotiations in conjunction with county attorney with All West under the condition that some capacity be retained by the consortium, and that CTC move forward with grant applications.  Commissioner Vickrey seconded.    Motion passed unanimously. 

To strengthen this application, motion to establish a joint powers board.  Commissioner Rawhouser made a motion to create a broadband joint powers board in partnership with the town of Big Piney, Marbleton, and Pinedale.  Membership shall consist of two members of the County Commission, the mayor or representative from each of the three towns, and a non-voting member representing the selected vendor.  Commission Noble seconded the motion.  Motion passed unanimously.

All stated they had the authority to represent the entire council.  Pinedale Mayor, Matt Murdock listed the projects.  After discussion it was agreed Marbleton’s project of an inlet to the sewer treatment plant, with water monitoring for water well system at $137,386.00; and Pinedale and Big Piney would split the remaining $50,000 into two equal halves of $25,000 each. Commissioner Vickrey moved to approve the project list as presented by the three towns.  Commissioner Bousman seconded.  Motion carried unanimously. 

10:45 five minute break. Chairman Burnett resumed the meeting at 10:50.

Chairman Burnett recognized Wendy Boman chairperson of the Rural Health Care District and asked her to present her items.  The first item was a letter from Bill Kluck requesting the repositioning of a light pole that affects the approach of the Life Flight helicopter.  Chairman Burnett stated no motion necessary but asked for agreement among the Board.  The agreement was so noted by the board. 

MOU between Sublette County Rural Health Care Board and Sublette County: The Chairman asked the Clerk to explain the MOU.  She explained that the County and SCRHCD are on the same Blue Cross Blue Shield policy.  In the past, the County has computed SCRHCD portion of premiums and claims.  BCBS has moved to a different billing platform and now requires a lump sum payment.  The MOU states the SCRHCD will send money through an ACH payment and the County will then pay the amount due. Commissioner Bousman made the motion accept the MOU between the District and Sublette. Commissioner Noble seconded. Motion carried unanimously.

Chairman Burnett asked the Board to review the renewal of the facility lease with the District and the County.

Commissioner Vickrey opposed.

Chairman Burnett recognized Mike Henn from the Conservation District.  Also present were Todd Hurd from Forsgren Engineering, Dan Liske from Premier Site Development, and Milford Lockwood and Darrel Walker SCCD Board Supervisors.  Mike stated the engineer’s estimate was $282,158.00 for the current remodel but the current estimate is actually, with input the Contractor and sub-contractors, currently at $307,405.00.  $98,750 is the bids received for the fire sprinkler system. The Conservation District Board approved $40,000 to supplement but still need money to finish the fire sprinkler system part of the project. The Board discussed with Dan and Mike the cost overage of $123,997.00. Chairman Burnett asked Dan if he could start work on the project without a decision from the Board regarding the fire suppression.  Dan said he would not be affected for about one month.   Chairman Burnett asked the Board if they wanted to take the situation under advisement.  Commissioner Bousman asked the Clerk if she would research available funding.
