Sublette County School District No. 1 Public
Notice #8142 published in the Pinedale Roundup on Feb. 7, 14, 21, 2020
The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company) for authority to revise its tariff schedules 70 and 72 to increase the Blue Sky block size from 100 to 200 kilowatt hours (kWh), effective on and after January 1, 2020. The proposed revision responds to growing customer demand for renewable energy and aligns the Company’s tariffs with current market conditions. The Commission’s approval is subject to notice, protest, intervention, refund, change, further investigation, opportunity for hearing and further order of the Commission.
On November 7, 2019, RMP submitted its Application requesting authority to revise tariff Schedules 70 and 72 to increase the Blue Sky Block value from 100 to 200 kWh. Participation in the Blue Sky program is optional for Wyoming customers who want to offset their energy usage requirements with renewable energy by purchasing blocks of bundled renewable energy certificates (RECs). Tariff 70 and 72 define RECs and the types of renewable energy sources underlying the RECs. Customers purchase RECs to ensure they are renewable energy users. The Company then retires those purchased RECs on the customer’s behalf and maintains Green-E certification of the Blue Sky program. Currently, the Company’s tariff defines “Blocks” as 100 kWh of renewable energy. The Company requests the Block value increase to 200 kWh of renewable energy. Customers will continue to have the right to purchase as many Blocks as they would like.
This is not a complete description of RMP’s Application. The Application is on file with the Commission at its offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and at RMP’s Wyoming business offices. The Application is available for inspection by any interested person during regular business hours or online at: http://psc.state.wy.us/.
Anyone desiring to file a statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must file in writing with the Commission on or before March 4, 2020. A proposed intervention or request for hearing must set forth the grounds under which they are made and the position and interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. Please mention Docket No. 20000-571-ET-19 (Record No. 15388) in your communications.
If you wish to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing that you will attend, or want to make a statement, a protest or a public comment, 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.

Notice #8148 published in the Pinedale Roundup on Feb. 21, 2020
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.

Notice #8149 published in the Pinedale Roundup on Feb. 21, 28, 2020
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 expand the Blacks Fork Substation, 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 10, 2020, the Company submitted an Application together with exhibits requesting the Commission grant a CPCN to expand the Blacks Fork Substation.
Specifically, RMP requests the Commission grant a CPCN to expand the Blacks Fork substation. The expansion would include: one new transformer to step down voltage from 230 kilovolt (kV) to 34.5 kV; three new 230 kV circuit breakers arranged in a ring bus configuration; one new 230 kV feeder bay with a breaker for future connection, one new feeder bay and two new 34.5 kV circuit breakers; one new primary meter; and a differential protection scheme to allow feeders to operate parallel if necessary.
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.
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 March 13, 2020. 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. 20000-577-EA-20 (Record No. 15452) in your communications.
