Information meetings set on electric service prices and programs

CASPER, Wyo. — Rocky Mountain Power has scheduled six public information workshops in May to inform Wyoming customers about its prices, how to use its customer care services and energy efficiency incentives, as well as information about state and federal payment assistance programs that are available.

“While Rocky Mountain Power customers in Wyoming have some of the lowest electricity prices in the nation, we are experiencing a period where economic conditions are creating an upward pressure on utility rates,” said Sharon Fain, vice president for Wyoming. “We understand that a price increase is never welcome news, so we want to meet with customers to answer their questions and share with them the financial conditions our company is facing that are driving recent price increases.”

The meeting schedule is:

· Mon. May 13 — Casper, 4–7 p.m., Ramkota Hotel & Conference Center, 800 N. Poplar Street

· Tues. May 14 — Laramie, 4–7 p.m., Holiday Inn Riverton, 900 E. Sunset Blvd.

· Wed. May 15 — Rawlins, 4–7 p.m., EconoLodge, 1801 E. Cedar Street

· Thur. May 16 — Riverton, 4–7 p.m., Holiday Inn Riverton, 900 E. Sunset Blvd.

· Fri. May 17 — Rock Springs, 4–7 p.m., Sweetwater Events Complex, Pronghorn Room, 3320 Yellowstone Road

· Tues. May 28 — Cody, 4–7 p.m., Holiday Inn Cody-at Buffalo Bill Village, 1701 Sheridan Ave.

The workshop format will allow customers to speak with employees who work in utility regulation, customer service and operational roles to explain the company’s business needs and how rate requests are evaluated by the Wyoming Public Service Commission to ensure rates are fair and reasonable and enable the company to continue to provide safe, reliable electric service to Wyoming customers.
