Green Power Program
Green Power - A Resource Of Choice
One by one, your neighbors and local businesses have chosen to make our environment better by enrolling in Idaho Power's voluntary Green Power Program. It's an easy way to bring green power home.
What is Green Power?
- It’s clean. Green Power comes from renewable energy projects in the Northwest.
- Each dollar of Green Power purchased represents 100 kWh of renewable energy delivered to the regional power grid.
- It’s in your community. Participation in our Green Power Program supports Solar 4R Schools, bringing solar panels and energy education to area schools.
How Can I Participate?

Block Enrollment: $1/100 kWh block
