PSPS Event Information

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.

There are no active PSPS events at this time.  

During an event, we will update impacted customers by a phone call, text or email. Impacted zones are displayed on the map below, where you can also search for a specific address to see if it falls inside a PSPS zone. Learn more about how to prepare.
