Shade Tree Project

Fall 2021 Enrollment is Open!

Shade trees offer many benefits, including increased comfort, enhanced property values and improvements to air and water quality. Shade trees can even help reduce energy used for summer cooling by 15% or more when planted in the right location! The Shade Tree Project encourages homeowners to plant shade trees to help shade their home and reduce energy use.

The Shade Tree Project is for Idaho Power’s residential customers who wish to plant a shade tree at their home. It is open to a limited geographic area each spring and fall. Participants must have the legal right to plant trees on the property. Several species are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Participation is limited to two trees per customer for the life of the program.

For a limited time, Idaho Power residential customers in Blaine, Camas, Cassia, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Minidoka and Twin Falls counties are eligible to receive up to two free shade trees.

To help ensure the safety of our customers, Idaho Power has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to ship one gallon trees directly to customers’ homes for our 2021 Shade Tree offerings.

Idaho Power has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to bring you the Energy Saving Trees online enrollment tool. A limited number of trees are available for the fall offering, so sign up now!
