These interim rates will remain in effect until final rates are approved by the Commission. The interim increase is subject to refund with interest if the final rate increase is less than the interim increase or to additional collection if the final rate increase is greater than the interim increase. The Commission's approval of these interim rates does not in any way prejudice or restrict any party with respect to any issues concerning the Commission's determination of the final PCAM rate increase. The Company stated that the deferred NPC adjustment in.this applica- tion is the result of a number of factors including, but not limited to, low- er total Company hydroelectric generation, lower thermal generation availability, coal costs and the variance of ECD credits to Wyoming. The interim PCAM price changes by tariff rate schedule in the applica- tion are set forth in the table below: Customer Class Residential (Schedule 2) General Service (Schedule 25) General Service (Schedule 28) Large General Service " Proposed Percentage Change 1.39% 0.77% 1.97% Schedule 33 2.50% Schedule 46 2.34% Schedule 48T 2.12% Irrigation (Schedule 40) Irrigation (Schedule 210) Public Street Lighting Schedules 1.51% 1.71% 0.96% This is not a complete description of RMP's application.
