Public Service Commission


Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, the Commission hereby gives notice that Powder River Energy Corporation’s (PRECorp or the Cooperative) has filed an Application for authority to implement a new PREpay meter service to residential members, effective November 1, 2021.

PRECorp is a non-profit cooperative public utility as defined in Wyo. Stat. § 37-1-101(a)(vi)(C), subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction pursuant to Wyo. Stat. § 37-2-112.

On August 25, 2021, PRECorp submitted its Application, requesting authority to implement a new PREpay meter service to residential members, effective November 1, 2021. The Cooperative states the offering is a voluntary billing and payment service for members who would like to make payment for their service using a prepayment method. Residential members who do not have established credit with the Cooperative may opt for the PREpay meter service in lieu of paying a security deposit.

Restrictions apply. PREpay meter service is not available to anyone having a life support system in their home. It is also not available to members repaying a service or product related loan which is billed to their electric service account. Those wishing to take the service are required to establish a SmartHub account with the Cooperative. Subscribers of the service will be notified, via the SmartHub account, when the balance on the electric account is expected to be consumed within the next four days, and again when the account balance reaches zero.

This is not a complete description of the Application. Interested persons may inspect the Application at the Cooperative’s business office located in Sundance, Wyoming or at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming, during regular business hours, or online at: or at the Cooperative’s website at:
