TOWN OF DEAVER Rodney Wambeke, MAYOR Publish: August 19, 26 & September 2, 2010 Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wy- oming Public Service Commission's (Commission) Rules, the Com- mission hereby gives notice that Rocky Mountain Power (Rocky Mountain or the Company) has applied to the Commission for an accounting order to record a regulatory asset or liability, 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 cer- tificates of public convenience and necessity issued by the Commis- sion. Rocky Mountain Power is subject to the Commission's juris- diction under W.S. 37-2-112. On August 19, 2010, Rocky Mountain submitted its application seek- ing an accounting order authorizing it to record a regulatory asset or liability, effective December 1, 2010, for any difference between ac- tual net power costs and base net power costs after its Power Cost Adjustment Tariff Mechanism (PCAM) - Tariff Schedule 94, expires on November 30, 2010. The Company states it filed an application in Docket No. 20000- 368-EA-10, on April 16, 2010, seeking to implement an Energy Cost Adjustment Mechanism (ECAM). The procedural schedule estab- lished for that proceeding provides for a public hearing to be held beginning on November 8, 2010, which may result in the issuance of a decision after the expiration of the current PCAM on November 30, 2010. In the event this occurs, the Company in this current fil- ing seeks authority to defer any net power costs above or below the level of base net power costs in rates beginning on December 1, 2010. Rocky Mountain states it is not requesting a change in rates in this filing. The deferred net power cost will be accounted for as a regulatory asset or liability in its FERC Account No. 182.3, Other Regulatory Assets. If the ECAM or some other deferred net power cost recovery mechanism is approved by the Commission, the Com- pany would propose to apply the mechanism to the deferred net power cost balance and either return or collect from customers any difference under the provisions of the approved mechanism. Interested persons may inspect the application at Rocky Mountain's business offices throughout Wyoming and at the Commission's of- fices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours. Anyone wishing to file a statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a public hearing in this matter must do so in writing filed with the Commission on or before September 30, 2010. Any inter- vention request filed with the Commission shall set forth the grounds of the proposed intervention or request for hearing as well as the po- sition and the interest of the petitioner in this proceeding. Please be sure to mention Docket No. 20000-378-EA-10 in all correspondence with the Commission. If you wish to intervene in this matter or request a public hearing which you will attend and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, call the Commission at (307) 777-7427 or write to the Commission, 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002.
