Note that on Oct. 11, 2019, Idaho Power and the Staff of the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (IPUC) filed a settlement agreement with the IPUC requesting changes to the compensation structure for residential and small general service customers with on-site generation. Learn more about this case on the IPUC website.

  1. Review the eligibility requirements, system size limits and technical requirements.
  2. Submit an Idaho Power customer generation application and $100 fee. Idaho Power will review the project within 7 business days and determine if any upgrades to the electrical grid are needed or if you’re fine to proceed. Upgrades are an additional expense, so we recommend completing this step before proceeding with your purchase.
  3. Install your system once you’ve received approval from Idaho Power and have secured any required building and electrical permits.
  4. After your system has been installed and has passed a state or city electrical inspection, submit the System Verification Form. After Idaho Power receives this form, we will conduct a site visit within 10 businesses days to make sure your system is ready to go and to install your new meter.
