As our customer you’re entitled to know about the energy we’re delivering to you, that it includes both electricity generated by Idaho Power-owned facilities and energy purchased from others.
Retail customers are those customers for whom we deliver electricity within our service area in Idaho and Oregon. Because Idaho Power also sells electricity to other utilities for resale, not all electricity purchased or generated by Idaho Power is delivered to our retail customers.
Electricity produced by resources typically considered to be renewable such as wind, biomass or geothermal is not counted as renewable energy delivered to customers in a given year, unless Idaho Power holds and retires an equivalent number Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) in that year. Learn more about how RECs work.
Energy for which Idaho Power holds and retires an equivalent number of RECs will be counted as renewable energy delivered to customers in the year the RECs are retired.

Note: Idaho Power’s Green Power Program allows customers to voluntarily support the growth and development of renewable resources. In 2016, program participants purchased more than 15 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of green power for the region’s power grid. The Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) and environmental attributes associated with this power have been retained and retired on behalf of and for the sole use of the Green Power Program participants. These voluntary green power purchases by Idaho Power’s Green Power Program participants are not reflected in the above table. Learn more about our Green Power Program.
