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 is subject to the Commission's juris- diction under W.S. 37-2-112. 2. On November 9, 2012, Rocky Mountain submitted its appli- cation seeking approval of a CPCN for the conversion of its existing Red Butte substation and approximately 7.3 miles of 69 kV transmis- sion line to 115 kV pursuant to W.S. 37-2-205 and Sections 204 and 205 of the Commission's Rules. The substation is located in Township 33 North, Range 80 West in Section 15 which is west of Robertson Road in Mills City, Wyoming. The existing transmission line that is being converted transverses Natrona County adjacent to the Casper Municipal Golf Course, Faith Assembly of God church, Sunrise Hills Subdivision, Wyoming State Land, Garden Creek Subdivision, Wolf Creek Subdivision, Wyoming Game and Fish Commission Land and Office, North Platte River, River Vista Subdivision, Paradise Val- ley Subdivision and Paradise Valley School, and adjacent roads S.W. Wyoming Boulevard, Robertson Road and Highway 220 East. More specifically, the transmission line begins at the Community Park sub- station in Township 33 North, Range 79 West, Section 16, ending in Section 15 at the Red Butte substation. The line is located on portions of Sections 16, 19, 20, 21, 22, 28, 29, and 30 in Township 33 North, Range 79 West, and portions of Sections 14, 15, 22, 23, 24, 25, and 26 in Township 33 North, Range 80 West. 3. According to Rocky Mountain, the conversion of the trans- mission line and substation is needed due to customer load growth and energy demands that have exceeded the current capabilities of the Company's existing electrical system and the need to ensure continued safe, adequate and reliable electric service in and around Natrona County, Wyoming. The land upon which the substation and transmission line is located is owned by Rocky Mountain and private landowners with existing easements, with two locations where the transmission line needs to be relocated. The total estimated cost of the conversion is expected to be $9.6 million. Rocky Mountain states that it may use operating cash flow, long-term and short-term debt and, if necessary, equity capital to fund the project. The Company will apply for rate base treatment in a Wyoming general rate case when the project is completed and in service. Construction is estimated to commence in June of 2013, and is estimated to be completed on June 30, 2014. 4. This is not a complete description of the application., Inter- ested persons may inspect the application at Rocky Mountain s bust- ness offices throughout Wyoming and at the Commission's offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours. 5.
