Focusing on Planning for Future Energy Needs

The September edition of Connections, Idaho Power’s customer newsletter, focuses on how the company plans for future energy needs.

The 2017 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), a 20-year look at expected growth and how to continue providing reliable, responsible energy at a fair price, was submitted to state regulators for review in June. The Idaho Public Utilities Commission recently announced it is accepting comments on the document, which Idaho Power is required to prepare every two years.

In addition to a look at how the IRP is prepared, Connections includes articles about how the electrical grid served record high demand last summer, and how our underground cable replacement program is strengthening the grid while improving reliability.

Connections is available online at Customers can learn more about the IRP at
