The Wyoming Public Service Commission (Commission) has authorized Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC d/b/a Black Hills Energy (BHWG or the Company) to implement an increase of $0.0017 per therm in the Company’s Revenue Adjustment Mechanism (RAM) rate applicable for all customers. The new rate is effective June 1, 2020, through November 30, 2020. 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 approximately 130,000 customers, including Choice Gas customers. The proposed RAM rate would provide for an average monthly increase of approximately $0.05 (0.2%) for residential customers who use a monthly average of 30 therms during the rate-effective period of June 1, 2020, through November 30, 2020.
The Commission approved rate changes in four separate dockets, effective June 1, 2020 (Docket Nos. 30026-21-GA-20, 30026-24-GA-20, 30026-25-GM-20 and 30026-26-GP-20). The cumulative net effect of the rate changes in these dockets provides for an average monthly decrease of approximately $0.42 (-1.3%) for residential customers who use a monthly average of 25 therms during June, July and August 2020.
BHE’s Application is on file at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne. The Application is available for inspection by any interested person during regular business hours or online at: http://psc.wyo.gov.
