Heating and Cooling Efficiency Program Incentives

Did you know that up to 50 percent of your home’s energy costs may be going directly to heating and cooling? Energy efficient heating and cooling equipment that’s sized and installed to best practices can keep your home more comfortable year–round and may save you money. Idaho Power provides cash incentives from $250 to $1,000 to residential customers who install a qualified heat pump, or a $150 incentive for qualified evaporative coolers.

The following provides information on the various incentives and qualifications available to residential customers.
