Idaho Power’s on-site generation tariffs allow Idaho and Oregon customers to install small-scale renewable generation projects on their property and connect to Idaho Power’s electrical grid. When customers generate more electricity than they consume, they earn a kilowatt-hour (kWh) credit that carries forward to the next month.
