February 21, 2019 I The Lovell Chronicle I 13 BY DAVID PECK Taking to the road for a pair of late-season con- ference games, the Lovell Bulldogs struggled a bit in losses to Worland and Lander over the weekend, falling to Worland 51-33 Friday and to Lander 54-38 Saturday. The losses leave the Bulldogs, who had won three in a row, 0-5 in the 3A West Conference and 7-13 overall with one regu- lar season game remaining. Coach Craig Lundberg said the Bulldogs matched Worland 8-8 in the first quarter, but the home team outscored Lovell 22-12 in the second quarter to lead by 10 and never trailed again. Lundberg said the Bulldogs had prepared for Worland sharpshoot- ers like Rudy Sanford and Luke Mortimer, but center Andrew Edholm scored 14 points in the paint, which the Bulldogs didn't expect. "We focused way more on their perimeter play- ers, figuring we could con- tain their post players, but he really hurt us," Lund- berg said of Edholm. "He was able to turn and score at will. We didn't really pre- eare for that. It was a dif- rence maker." If Edhold wasn't scor- ing inside, the Warriors were stealing the ball and converting in transition. "I felt like we beat our- selves," Lundberg said. "Eighteen of their points % DAVID PECK Lovell senior center Jacob Grant fires up a jumper during a recent game.

Published: February 14 and 21, 2019 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 Facilityl (the Projec0. 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 fnal 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.
