Energy Efficiency Programs Summary

At Idaho Power, we actively seek cost-effective ways to encourage wise and efficient use of electricity. Idaho Power has programs for all customers.


A/C Cool Credit
Receive a $5 monthly credit for allowing Idaho Power to cycle your home's central air conditioning system during some June, July and August weekday afternoons. This reduces system demand during periods of extreme peak electricity use.

Energy Efficient Lighting
Take advantage of reduced pricing at area retailers when you purchase ENERGY STAR® certified CFLs and LEDs, LED fixtures and high-efficiency showerheads.

Energy House Calls
If you live in a manufactured home heated by an electric furnace or heat pump, you may be able to reduce your energy use and lower your monthly bill with this free package of services, which includes duct sealing and LED installation.

ENERY STAR® Homes Northwest
Learn more about incentive options if you are planning to break ground on a new energy-efficient, single-family home with heat pump technology before Dec. 17.

Fridge and Freezer Recycling Program
With the Fridge and Freezer Recycling Program, an Idaho Power program partner will pick up and recycle the unit for free from your home.

Heating and Cooling Efficiency Program
Earn incentives for the purchase and installation of energy saving equipment and services for heating and cooling your home.

Home Energy Audit
Receive a professional in-home energy audit, recommendations for increasing energy savings and a variety of energy efficiency improvements, such as energy saving light bulbs, for a discounted price.

Rebate Advantage
Earn cash back when you purchase a new electrically heated ENERGY STAR qualified manufactured home.

Weatherization Assistance for Qualified Customers
If you have an electrically heated home, you may qualify for free energy efficiency improvements that increase comfort and help reduce energy use. Call your local community action partnership (CAP) agency to see if you are income-qualified.

Weatherization Solutions for Eligible Customers
If you have an electrically heated home and do not qualify for Weatherization Assistance, you may still be eligible for free energy efficiency improvements that increase comfort and help reduce energy use.

Agricultural Irrigation

An incentive of up to 75 percent is available for irrigation customers who improve the energy efficiency of an existing pump system, or they may receive up to 10 percent when installing an efficient new pump system. Incentives also are available for repair and replacement of worn irrigation components.

Irrigation Peak Rewards
This demand response program is for specific irrigation customers who allow Idaho Power to use control devices to turn off their pumps for a few hours on select summer days, reducing the load during periods of extreme peak electricity use.
