Maintaining a reliable electric system for our customers is a responsibility Idaho Power employees take seriously. From providing energy for customers' homes and businesses to maintaining an efficient transmission system, reliability is an integral part of what we do every day to meet electricity needs and ensure power on demand.
Idaho Power complies with mandatory reliability standards set by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) and Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC) to prevent problems and outages on our "bulk electric transmission system." That includes generation resources, transmission lines and interconnections with neighboring systems.

This pilot project's goal is to increase reliability and customer satisfaction by replacing existing underground cable with a more modern, reliable version. Seven million feet of cable in 17 years!
Idaho Power's highest priority is to address hazardous situations, such as downed power lines. Our crews then focus on restoration of the largest number of customers as quickly as possible, and on repairs that will restore service to critical facilities such as hospitals, water pumping stations and police and fire departments.
