Quality Assurance Checks

Idaho Power has hired independent third-party contractors to randomly perform quality assurance checks on windows and insulation installations that have been turned in for incentive payments.

Idaho Power performs quality assurance assessments because it's imperative that installations are done properly in order to ensure the energy savings we have projected for each job are accurate.

Quality Assurance checks also serve as an education tool for our contractors as they learn to install windows and insulation to the standards of the Home Improvement Program.
