EL05-014 In the Matter of the Joint Request for an Electric Service Territory Boundary Change between Butte Electric Cooperative, Inc. and Black Hills Power, Inc.

On April 8, 2005, the Commission received a Request for Approval of an Electric Service Territory Agreement Jointly Submitted by Butte Electric Cooperative (Butte) and Black Hills Power (Black Hills). Butte and Black Hills have agreed to exchange four separate territorial areas. The exchanges include a proposed lift station at Exit 17 in Lawrence County, exchange of territory in the Sandstone Hills/Countryside Subdivision, exchange of territory due to Highway 85 line relocation and construction, and property owned by Kevin McKee. Both utilities support the request and state the exchange of territory would provide for an electric system that avoids unnecessary duplication of facilities and helps minimize operational challenges.
