Mr. Power tax benefit PUBLIC NOTICE Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission's (Commission) Rules, the Commission hereby gives notice that Rocky Mountain Power (Rocky Mountain or the Company) has applied to the Commission for an accounting order to establish a regulatory asset, as more fully described below. Rocky Mountain is a public utility as defined in W.S. 37-1-101(a) (vi)(C) which provides retail electric public utility service under certificates of public convenience and necessity issued by the Commission. Rocky Mountain Power is subject to the Commission's jurisdiction under W.S. 37-2-112. Rocky Mountain is a public utility as defined in W.S. 37-1-101(a) (vi)(C), and as such, subject to the Commission's jurisdiction under W.S. 37-2-112. On April 5, 2010, Rocky Mountain submitted an application seeking an accounting order authorizing it to record a regulatory asset associated with tax benefits previously reflected in rates that will no longer be realized for certain costs incurred for post-retirement prescription drug coverage as a result of the March 23, 2010, Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (the "Act"). The Company states the Act changed the deductibility of certain costs incurred for post- retirement prescription drug coverage and the Company proposes to remedy that by amortizing the regulatory asset over a period of four years beginning January 1, 2011, and credit the deferred tax expense to recover the Wyoming portion of the tax benefits previously reflected in rates. The Company states this $11.4 million regulatory asset When amortized and grossed up for tax effects, results in a revenue requirement impact of approximately $18.5 million on a total Company basis amortized over four years. The Company further explains that Wyoming's share of the regulatory-assets will be established based on the system overhead allocation factor, resulting in approximately $2.8 million. This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the application at Rocky Mountain's business offices throughout Wyoming and at the Commission's offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours. Anyone wishing to file a statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing inthis matter must do so in writing filed with the Commission on or before May 7, 2010.

By order of: Big Horn County School District No. 2 502 Hampshire Ave. Lovell, Wyoming 82431 Publish: April 8, 15 & 22, 2010 Rocky. Mr. Power EnerLV Cost Adiuctment PUBLIC NOTICE Pursuant to the wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the wyoming Public Service Commission's Procedural Rules and Special Regulations, notice is hereby given of the application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP) for authority to implement an Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM), as more fully described below. On April 5, 2010, RMP submitted an application, together with exhibits and revised tariff sheets, requesting authority to implement an ECAM to replace the existing Power Cost Adjustment Mechanism (PCAM). The existing PCAM sunsets at the end of the historical period on November 30, 2010. The final rate effective period for amortization and recovery (or retum) of deferred net power costs related to the current PCAM beginsApril 1,2011, and ends March 31, 2012; RMP stated thatthe replacement for the PCAM, asopposed to elimination without replacement, is critical if the Company is to have a reasonable opportunity to recover prudently incurred net power costs (NPC) directly related to serving Wyoming customers. The proposed ECAM will allow the Company to account for and collect or credit the differences between actual NPC and a base level of NPC established in either a general rate case or in an ECAM case. On a monthly basis, RMP states that it will compare the actual system NPC to the base NPC in rates and defer the differences in the ECAM balancing account. In this filing, RMP proposes to modify the relevant dates of the current PCAM to simplify the preparation and review of the ECAM RMP proposed to file an annual ECAM application on or before March 15 th of each year, effective June 1 stOf each year. RMP also proposes that the ECAM shall be computed on a per-unit (dollars/MWh) basis. RMP states this will simplify the calculations and eliminate the complex allocation mechanism embedded in the current PCAM. RMP states that a per-unit calculation also accounts for fluctuations in volume differences in the base versus the actual experience. In addition, RMP proposes that the monthly interest on the net balance in the ECAM account continue to be symmetrical, as it is with the current PCAM. RMP proposes to include in the ECAM sulfur dioxide Lovell High School IJ.nrade Project bids CALL FOR BIDS Big Horn County School District No. 2 Lovell High School - Phase I Construction Mechanical, Electrical, Window Upgrade Big Horn County School District No. 2 is receiving sealed proposals for a Mechanical, Electrical and Window Upgrade Project at the Lovell High School. 1.
