CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Jan. 26, 2024) — Rocky Mountain Power has rolled out a new economic development tool to support Wyoming’s growing and diversifying economy. The new Feasibility Study is the initial step in processing new load requests exceeding 25 megawatts.

The new tool is now available at no upfront cost and those interested in using the tool can anticipate a response to their inquiry within 15 to 30 days.

“The new Feasibility Study provides a basic estimate of available Rocky Mountain Power service,” said Michael Morrissey, regional business manager for central Wyoming. “If the customer finds the information in the feasibility study favorable and wishes to proceed, the next step is to present an Engineering Services Agreement for a more detailed study.”    

Sharon Fain, certified economic developer, and vice president for Wyoming at Rocky Mountain Power, said the company is seeing a rise in new service requests. The new Feasibility Study tool will ensure Wyoming remains competitive in business and industrial recruitment, expansion and retention.

“We’re pleased to introduce this innovative economic development tool to potential new and current customers, state economic partners, communities, chambers of commerce and economic development organizations, aiming to foster economic growth and diversification,” Fain said.
