Terms and Conditions

The Organizational and Professional Development Grant, and “Energy for Growth” Marketing Grant (together, a “Grant,” and collectively the “Grant Program”), and all associated programs are subject to all federal, state, local and municipal laws and regulations and are void where prohibited by law. No purchase is necessary to enter or win.

In these Terms and Conditions, the term “Participant” means a qualifying organization meeting the eligibility criteria described in these Terms and Conditions that submits an application on the form approved by Idaho Power (“Application”) and, where an individual submits an Application on behalf of an organization or his or her self, collectively such person and the organization on whose behalf the individual has submitted an Application.

Eligibility:

Participation in the Grant Program is open to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry, currently residing in one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia at the time of submitting an Application. Only those Participants who conduct or perform a significant portion of their qualifying programs within Idaho Power Company’s authorized service area (encompassing a designated area of southern Idaho and eastern Oregon) are eligible to apply to receive an award in the Grant Program. Eligibility of Participants is subject to verification by Idaho Power Company.

Eligibility for participation in the Grant Program and submission of a qualifying Application does not guarantee the receipt of a Grant by a Participant. Only a limited number of Grants are available for award and, accordingly, only a small number of prospective Participants who submit an Application may ultimately receive a Grant.

How to Enter:

Entrants must complete all information requested in an Application. LIMIT ONE (1) ENTRY PER PARTICIPANT. An organization that submits an Application must designate one (1) individual as the Participant to submit the Application. Idaho Power Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, will decide if written documentation provided is sufficient, and may at its sole discretion request additional documentation from the person or organization seeking to be a Participant. Idaho Power Company is not responsible or liable for any disputes between Participants and organizations arising under or related to the Grant Program.

Idaho Power will award multiple grants and each Participant that is selected by Idaho Power Company to receive an award may receive up to, and not in excess of, $750 for an Organizational and Professional Development Grant or $3,000 for an “Energy for Growth” Marketing Grant. In the case of an “Energy for Growth” Marketing Grant, Idaho Power Company retains discretion as to the amount provided, but in no case will it exceed 50 percent of the program cost.

Idaho Power Company reserves the right to select, in its sole discretion, the prospective Participants that will be Grant recipients and the dollar amount of Grant awards to each Participant chosen by Idaho Power Company. Each Participant will be bound by the decisions of Idaho Power Company, which shall be final and binding in all respects and not subject to challenge on any basis. A Participant may decline to receive an award under the Grant Program. Arrangements for delivery of Grants will be performed after grant recipient validation. Each Participant that receives a Grant is solely responsible for all applicable federal, state, and local income and any other taxes, fees, and surcharges.
