Our 20-Year Plan

Idaho Power’s Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) examines the demand for energy over the next 20 years and the best ways to meet that demand for our customers. The plan is updated every two years and includes a series of public meetings that help guide our planning process.

The IRP describes the company’s projected need for additional electricity and the resources necessary to meet that need while balancing reliability, environmental responsibility, efficiency, risk and cost.

Idaho Power enlists the assistance of its customers in developing the IRP through an advisory panel — the Integrated Resource Plan Advisory Council (IRPAC).

The IRPAC consists of members of the environmental community, major industrial customers, irrigation representatives, state legislators, public utility commission representatives and other interested parties.

The IRPAC meets with Idaho Power regularly over a period of several months during the development of the company’s IRP. These meetings are public. The advisory council’s responsibilities include:

  • Representing the interests of Idaho Power’s more than 600,000 customers
  • Participating in open and active discussions of relevant issues, and
  • Working with Idaho Power to develop ways to engage the public in the IRP process.

Public Input

IRPAC meetings are open to the public, and opportunities for input are provided at each meeting.

You can also submit questions or comments using the form on this page. You can also email our IRP team.
