The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) approved on an interim basis the Application of Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC d/b/a Black Hills Energy (BHWG or the Company) to implement a decrease of $0.0058 per therm in the Company’s Revenue Adjustment Mechanism (RAM) rate. The Commission’s approval of BHWG’s rate change is subject to notice, protest, intervention, refund, change, further investigation, opportunity for hearing and further order of the Commission.
The RAM rate applies to BHWG’s approximately 132,756 residential, small, medium, and large general service customers throughout the Company’s Wyoming service territory, including those areas where the Choice Gas program is in effect. The Company included in the Application a credit of $1,011,852.36 from Tallgrass Interstate Gas Transmission, LLC, for operational flow order penalties related to the February 2021 cold-weather event. The proposed RAM rate would provide for a decrease of approximately $0.39 per month (-0.4%) for a typical residential customer using 67 therms per month during the rate-effective period of December 1, 2022, through May 31, 2023.
BHWG’s Application is available at the Commission in Cheyenne, or online at https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx (Enter Record No. 17188).
