This application is an interconnection request for existing Idaho Power customers who wish to install a Distributed Energy Resource (DER) comprised of an energy generation system (e.g., solar) or energy storage system (e.g., battery backup) . Once submitted an electronic printable version of this application will be emailed with instructions for signing and mailing the form with the application fee. Upon receipt of the application and fee, Idaho Power will review the project and determine if any upgrades to the electrical grid are needed. If no upgrades are needed, the customer will receive an approval to proceed. Application and fee expire one year after review date. Visit www.idahopower.com/CustomerGeneration for Idaho Power’s tariff schedules, interconnection and credit transfer eligibility requirements.
All customer generation systems must satisfy the requirements of Schedule 68 Interconnections to Customer Distributed Energy Resources. Upon completion of the interconnection process, customers with Exporting Systems will take service under one of the following schedules in Idaho Power’s Tariff:

• Idaho Small General Service customers – Schedule 08, Small General Service On-Site Generation
• All Oregon customers, and Idaho Large General Service, Irrigation and Industrial customers – Schedule 84, Customer Energy Production/Net Metering Service, and their standard retail service schedule.
Exporting system maximum size: 25 kW AC for Residential and Small General Service; 100 kW AC for Large General Service, Industrial, and Irrigation. AC-coupled energy storage systems count toward total system size.
Non-Exporting system maximum size: 25 kW AC for Residential and Small General Service; no limit for Large General Service, Industrial, and Irrigation. Energy storage systems do not count toward total system size.
Projects are reviewed based on the proposed total AC nameplate capacity as defined in Schedule 68 and AC unity power factor (1 kilovolt-ampere (kVA) = 1 kilowatt (kW)).
