Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules and Special Regulations, notice is hereby given of the Application of Rocky Mountain Power (RMP or the Company), for authority to modify Electric Services Schedule No. 140-Non-Residential Energy Efficiency.
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. § 37-2-12.
On July 29, 2016. RMP filed its Application requesting authority to modify Electric Service Schedule No. 140 Non-Residential Energy Efficiency, effective October 1, 2016. The Company is proposing to: [i] adjust tariff language to define all prescriptive measure incentives as a maximum not-to-exceed, or “up to” amount; [ii] exclude lighting energy efficiency project from Bill Credit eligibility; [iii] change retrofit lighting incentives for all technologies to a pay-for-savings rate, excluding re-lamp measures; [iv] reduce lighting incentives to reflect changes in the LED market; [v] restructure the Enhanced Incentive for Small Business offer to a Small Business Direct Installation offer; [vi] clarify light emitting diode (LED0 categories for midstream measures and add Tubular LEDs (TLED); and [vii] revise program qualifying HVAC specifications. RMP states these proposed changes are intended to sustain optimal incentive levels aligned with market conditions, decrease spending on lighting measure incentives by over 30 percent while achieving a similar amount of energy savings to the Program, and reduce costs of the Enhanced Incentive for Small Business program by approximately 35 percent through restructuring to a Small Business Direct Installation model.
This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the Application at RMP’s business offices throughout Wyoming and at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours.
