Rocky Mountain Power applies for rate increase
Wants $2.8 million more to cover costs or providing power to Wyoming customers
by Wyoming Public Service Commission
February 18, 2007
Rocky Mountain Power, formerly known as Pacificorp, has filed an application for a power cost adjustment mechanism (PCAM) rate increase in the amount of $2,837,351, according to a public service announcement by the Wyoming Public Service Commission.
Rocky Mountain Power states in its application that increased power costs have resulted from a number of factors including, but not limited to, higher Wyoming retail loads, higher coal prices, lower coal-fired generation during July 2006 when prices were very high, higher natural gas-fired generation and higher system balancing costs.
Interested persons may inspect the application at Rocky Mountain Power’s Casper office, on the company’s website at www.pacificorp.com under “Regulatory Information”, and at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours.
