Your Green Choices

Idaho Power has always used clean energy to power our customers’ lives. Our biggest source of electricity comes from clean hydro power. Interested in doing more for the environment? Here are additional clean, green options. Choose the ones best for you, your home and your lifestyle.

Green Power Program

For a penny a kilowatt hour (kWh), bring renewable energy home. No contracts and you may cancel any time. As part of this program, Solar 4R Schools educates students about renewable energy by placing solar installations on school property, along with a data monitoring system and a curriculum package.

Large Renewable Energy Purchase Option

For purchases of 750 MWh or more a year, Idaho Power offers business customers a customized, Green-e Energy certified Renewable Energy Certificate product supported by local wind, solar and geothermal projects.

Community Solar Pilot Program

Community Solar works much like a traditional community garden. Customers in Idaho can buy subscriptions to fund a solar array. In return, you get a share of the renewable solar energy generated by the array and a monthly bill credit for 25 years.

Customer Generation

If you’re installing small-scale, renewable energy such as rooftop solar, you can connect to Idaho Power’s grid to offset your electricity use.
