Idaho Power’s 2017 Energy Portfolio
Did you know nearly 50 percent of Idaho Power’s energy came from clean, renewable hydroelectricity? The national average is just 7.5 percent, making it easy to see why Idaho Power is proud of its portfolio.
About our Long-term Purchases (LTP)
Idaho Power is committed to supporting renewable energy sources such as wind and solar, and we buy them as part of our portfolio mix. In turn, we sell the Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) we get from those purchases to offset power supply costs and keep customer prices as low as possible.
The buyer of the REC gets to claim that power as part of its energy. Therefore, we do not represent that electricity produced by this resource mix is being delivered to our retail customers. We do support these alternate energy sources, and we pass along that credit to the organizations that buy the RECs from us.
Our customers matter to us. No matter what your energy needs are, Idaho Power strives to create a positive customer experience—and our efforts have been recognized with some of the highest customer satisfaction scores in our industry.
Incentives for Your Business
The New Construction program offers cash incentives designed to help cover a portion of the costs of designing and building energy efficient features into a commercial or industrial construction project. New construction, major renovations, additions or expansions and change-of-space type are all eligible.
This program offers incentives for customers upgrading equipment in existing facilities. Examples include lighting, HVAC/controls, food service equipment and building shell. If your business is looking to upgrade to more energy-efficient equipment, contact us to see which options are right for you.
Idaho Power offers a substation allowance for large commercial and industrial customers who install new or upgraded transformer capacity in our substation facilities. The allowance is determined by multiplying the customer’s actual increase in load by $64,386 per MW (not to exceed the actual cost of the substation facilities).
Why Choose Idaho Power
Year after year, Idaho Power prices consistently rank among the lowest in the country for commercial and industrial customers.
