Planning

When deciding where to put new facilities, Idaho Power considers population size and the need for energy. These two things drive where power lines and substations must be located.

Together with local jurisdictions and customers, Idaho Power creates a plan to construct new facilities to meet customers’ energy needs. Facilities are often added along transportation corridors and, where possible, we try to put them in areas that have less impact on residential and agricultural customers.
