Community Solar Pilot Program
Sign up now for Idaho Power’s Community Solar Pilot!
You can help make Idaho Power’s first 500-kilowatt community solar array a success with your subscription. This project will be built in Boise, but customers anywhere in our Idaho service area can participate. (See Who Can Participate?).
This is an opportunity to support renewable energy right here in Idaho. As of Nov. 1, 1,563 subscriptions were available.
What is the cost?
Subscriptions can be purchased for a one-time up-front payment of $562 per subscription, or in 24 monthly installments of $26.31.
What is the monthly bill credit?
Once the project is built and generating power, participants will receive a bill credit each month based on how much electricity is generated by the solar array. For each subscription, the average residential credit will be around a couple of dollars per month, (higher in the summer, lower in the winter). Based on current projections, it adds up to about $23 per year per subscription, which means you may recoup the original subscription cost over the 25-year life of the project.
How to participate?
Read the Terms and Conditions and fill out a Participant Agreement indicating how many subscriptions you would like and your payment method. Enrollments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
