Substation Allowance

We want your business!

Idaho Power offers a substation allowance for large commercial and industrial customers who install new or upgraded transformer capacity in our substation facilities. This allowance is available to Schedule 19 Large Power Service using 1 to 20 megawatts (MW) in both Idaho and Oregon service area.

How does it work?

The maximum possible allowance is determined by multiplying the customer’s actual increase in load by $49,253 per MW in Idaho or $72,559 per MW in Oregon (not to exceed the actual cost of the Substation Facilities).

The Substation Allowance will be refunded to the customer over a five-year period.

Example for a 10 MW Project in Idaho

Substation allowance customer benefit: $492,530
