Idaho Power considers population and the future need for energy when deciding when to build new power plants, lines and substations.
We work with customers, local governments, businesses and interest groups to develop plans for new facilities to meet energy needs. Where possible, we build these facilities in areas with minimal impact on customers.
We forecast our customers’ energy needs over the next 20 years and examine the best ways to meet that demand.
Read the latest on major projects like new transmission lines and substations that will help us continue our 100-year tradition of reliable, affordable, clean energy.
About every 10 years, we update long-range plans for regions we serve, such as the Magic Valley, Treasure Valley, eastern Idaho and Wood River Valley.
Idaho Power is working with communities in eastern Oregon on grid improvements to meet local priorities and continue our tradition of reliable, affordable, clean energy.
Most of our dams require a federal license. Learn more about our efforts to obtain a new long-term license for our Hells Canyon Complex (HCC) dams.
