Owner: Big Horn County By: Wesley Huber Title: County Airports Manager Published: May 30, june 6 and 13, 2019 RIVIP Docket No. 2000 I; F A-19 PUBLIC NOTICE Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission's (Commission) Procedural Rules, notice is hereby given of Rocky Mountain Power's (RMP or the Company) "Application to decrease rates under Tariff Schedule 197, 2017 Federal Tax Cut Adjustment. 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 or about December 22, 2017, federal tax legislation was enacted titled "An Act to Provide Reconciliation Pm;suant to Titles II and IV of the Concurrent Resolution of the Budget for Fiscal Year 2018" (Fax Cuts and Jobs Act or TCJA). On May 16, 2018, the Company submitted an application proposing to return the benefits of the TCJA. Specifically, RMP requested Commission approval of [i] proposed Tariff Schedule 197 to authorize the Company to reduce currents rates addressing the benefits from the TCJA; and [ii] approve the Stipulation entered into between RMP and Wyoming Industrial Energy Consumers. The Company proposed rate credits that reduce Wyoming customer retail rates by approximately $26.1 million (3.8%). RMP stated the total reduction included an annual credit allocation of 822.5 million in Tariff Schedule 197 to all retail tariff customers using the class cost of service from RMP's most recent general rate case (Sub 469) as well as an additional allocation of $3.6 million to offset the recent 2018 ECAM docket. By its Memorandum Opinion, Findings and Order Approving Stipulation issued on March 15, 2019, in Sub 469, the Commission approved the part of the Stipulation in which the parties agreed to refund $22.5 million of the tax benefits to customers until the next general rate case using the average-of- period rate base calculations and rejected the part of the Stipulation in which parties agreed to use some of the benefits to automatically offset future costs related to the ECAM and Energy Vision 2020 projects. On April 17, 2019, RMP filed its Application requesting to decrease rates under Tariff Schedule 197, 2017 Federal Tax Cut Adjustment. Specifically, RMP requests to decrease rates by $0.04 million (or 0.05 percent) to deliver additional benefits from the TCJA. RMP states the $22.5 million refund continues to be reflected in the Schedule 197 rates by the Company is replacing the $3.6 million to offset the 2018 Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM) with rates to refund to customers $3.96 million. The 83.96 million refund will partly offset the costs the Company seek to recover in the 2019 ECAM application which requested a total increase to customer rates of approximately $9.97 million. The Company calculated its proposed rate credits from Schedule 197 using the rate base allocation from the class cost of service study included in Sub 469. 80.4 million.
