The city of Blackfoot recently participated in an Idaho Power-sponsored wastewater cohort, where city officials met with similar customers and Idaho Power Energy Advisor Matt Stucki to discuss existing operations and energy-efficiency opportunities.
As a result of the cohort’s work and findings, the city developed and undertook several capital projects, including ultra-violet (UV) system upgrades and aerator distribution system line and diffuser replacements. These projects saved the city of Blackfoot 916,883 kilowatt-hours (kWh) per year — enough energy to power about 80 average-sized homes for a year — and earned the city a $165,038.94 incentive check that Stucki and Regional Customer Relations Manager Dave Spillett presented to Blackfoot Mayor Marc Carroll and Wastewater Superintendent Rex Moffat during a February city council meeting.
