Public Service Commission
March 26, 2020
The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved the Application of Powder River Energy Corporation (PRECorp or the Cooperative) for authority to revise its Cost of Power Adjustment (COPA) to reflect a net decrease of $1,581,860 per annum in wholesale power costs effective on and after January 1, 2020. The Commission’s approval is subject to notice, protest, intervention, refund, change, further investigation, opportunity for hearing and further order of the Commission.
The proposed rate of $0.004533 per kWh for residential members would result in an average monthly decrease of approximately $2.49 for PRECorp members who use an average of 982 kWh during the rate-effective period of January 2020 through December 2020.
Commission Rule Chapter 3, Section 26 allows a utility to pass on to its customers known or projected commodity cost increases or decreases on a dollar-for-dollar basis, subject to public notice, opportunity for hearing and refund.
PRECorp’s Application is on file at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and is available for inspection by any interested person during regular business hours or online at: http://psc.wyo.gov.
