Our Energy Mix

  • About half the energy in our fuel mix is clean hydro power.
  • Coal-fired generation accounts for about a third of our fuel mix; however, that amount is declining as we transition away from coal.
  • Natural gas-fired generation is the next largest component of our fuel mix.
  • The balance of our energy is purchased from the market or independent power producers.*

* Idaho Power sells the Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) that 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.
