A public safety power shutoff, or PSPS, is when a company like Idaho Power proactively turns off power to a certain area where wildfire risk is high due to extreme weather conditions. The outage is an effort to protect our customers, communities, employees and equipment from wildfire.
A PSPS is a last resort to prevent wildfires. Our goal is to minimize the risk of fire while balancing the impact outages have on our customers and communities.
Idaho Power does not have any active PSPS events at this time.
If a PSPS event is expected, we will attempt to contact any impacted customers by a phone call, text, or email in advance of the event. Learn more about how to prepare.
