Most recent GRC proceeding A.22-05-006 for Test Year 2023.

On May 5, 2022, PacifiCorp filed Test Year 2023 GRC Application A.22-05-006 requesting a $27.9 million increase to its base rate revenue requirement, which would result in a 34% increase to the base rate revenue requirement and an overall revenue requirement increase of 25.7% (including ECAC and other items). According to the application, 76% of PacifiCorp’s requested revenue requirement increase is attributed to wildfire mitigation and vegetation management. Among other items included in the application are PacifiCorp’s requested increase to Return on Equity (ROE) from 10.0% to 10.5%, proposed updates to certain depreciation rates, an updated cost allocation and rate design proposal, and requested approval of PacifiCorp’s Inter-Jurisdictional Allocation Protocol.

On August 9, 2022, the Assigned Commissioner’s Scoping Memo and Ruling was issued, setting forth the issues, schedule and other matters necessary to scope this proceeding.
