Idaho Power offers free weatherization improvements to electrically heated homes of income-qualified customers. These energy efficiency measures improve comfort and reduce energy consumption.
Two residential weatherization programs are available to Idaho Power customers whose homes are heated with electricity, the Weatherization Assistance Program and the Weatherization Solutions Program.
