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 its retail electric service rates by approximately $7.1 million per year or 1.1%, to revise the energy cost adjustment mechanism, and to discontinue operations at Cholla Power Plant, Unit 4, as more fully described below:

RMP is a public utility, as defined in Wyo. Stat. §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 Wyo. Stat. § 37-2-112.

On March 4, 2020, RMP submitted an Application requesting the Commission approve the Company’s proposal to implement: [1] an increase in its retail electric utility service rates in Wyoming of $7.1 million per annum or an average overall increase of 1.1 percent, with rates effective on and after January 1, 2021, including approval of proposed rate mitigation proposals; [2] changes to the Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism to include recovery of  $219.9 million through Schedule 95; and [3] a discontinuation of operations at Unit 4 of the Cholla Power Plant in Arizona, and approve proposed associated regulatory accounting treatment.

RMP is requesting an overall return on equity of approximately 10.2 percent, an overall cost of capital and return on rate base of 7.69 percent and the equity component of the capital structure is 53.52 percent.

The Company states its requested rate increase is primarily driven by: [a] continued capital investments, including the Energy Vision 2020 projects, which RMP states, are required in order for the Company to meet its obligation to serve its customers, and also includes an associated rate of return of 7.69 percent on all its capital investments; and [b] new depreciation rates, using a combination of the rates proposed within the Company’s depreciation study in Commission Docket No. 20000-539-EA-18, and stipulated as part of a settlement in principle reached with parties to the proceeding.

RMP’s proposed percentage increase or (decrease) in price changes, by rate schedule, are:

Customer Class           Proposed Percentage Change

Irrigation

Schedule 40    9.3%

Schedule 210 5.5%

Lighting Schedules       (3.4%)

Overall             1.1%

PUBLIC NOTICE

Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, the Commission hereby gives notice of the Application of Pinedale Natural Gas, Inc. (Pinedale or the Company) for authority to decrease rates to account for the effects of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA).

Pinedale is a public utility as defined by Wyo. Stat. § 37-1-101(a)(vi)(D), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyo. Stat. § 37-2-112.

On February 26, 2020, Pinedale filed an Application for authority to calculate the amounts due to Pinedale customers under the TCJA. Pinedale is proposing to change its imputed federally calculated income tax rate from 28% to 24%, effective January 1, 2018. In addition, the reduction in the federal income tax rate will also result in an excess deferred depreciation tax balance as the Company reflected a 28% federal tax expense in the year the deferred tax was established.

Pinedale states that after an updated revenue requirement and a decision on new rates is determined, assumed to be effective April 1, 2020, the Company will confirm the final amount to be refunded to customers in light of the effective date. At this time, the amount calculated to be refunded to customers under the TCJA should be approximately $38,002.

This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the Application at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, or by visiting the Commission’s website at https://psc.wyo.gov/.
