How We Compare Nationally

Idaho Power has one of the cleanest energy mixes in the nation. See the charts below to compare Idaho Power’s 2018 energy sources with the national average.

Long-Term Power Purchases are electric power contracts with independent power producers and other entities and can typically be identified by resource type.
Market Purchased Power is electric power purchased from other utilities in the wholesale electric market. Because we participate in the wholesale energy market, we sell electricity to other utilities and retail customers. Not all electricity purchased or generated by Idaho Power is delivered to our retail customers.
