Our Energy Mix
- Nearly half of Idaho Power’s energy comes from clean hydropower.
- About 28% of our energy is purchased from the market or independent power producers*.
- Coal-fired generation accounts for about 16% of our fuel mix; however, that amount is declining as Idaho Power transitions away from coal.
- Natural gas makes up the balance of our energy mix at about 11%.
- More details about our energy sources are available here.
* Idaho Power sells the RECs it receives in association with this energy, with proceeds benefiting retail customers. Because Idaho Power does not own the RECs for the other qualified renewable resources included in our Resource Portfolio Fuel Mix, Idaho Power cannot and does not represent that electricity produced by this fuel mix is being delivered to its retail customers.
