Video: Treasure Valley Hops Farm Goes 100% Clean

The Obendorf family has raised crops in Canyon County since the early 1900s. They’ve grown hops for more than 70 years. This year, they’re buying 100% clean energy through Idaho Power.

Obendorf Farms’ commitment to clean energy aligns with its history of reducing its environmental impact through measures like cover crops to stabilize the soil and energy efficiency upgrades to its irrigation system. It also aligns with Idaho Power’s own goal of providing 100% clean energy by 2045 without compromising their tradition of reliability and affordability.

This new video produced by Idaho Power describes the Obendorfs’ history in the Treasure Valley and features brothers Brock and Phil Obendorf talking about why clean energy is so important to them, their family and their company.
