Maintaining a reliable electric system for our customers is a responsibility Idaho Power takes seriously. From providing energy for customers' homes and businesses, to maintaining an efficient transmission system, reliability is an integral part of what we do every day to meet electricity needs and ensure power on demand.
Idaho Power complies with mandatory reliability standards set by:
- North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC)
- Western Electricity Coordinating Council (WECC)
These standards prevent problems and outages on our bulk electric transmission system that includes:
- Generation resources
- Transmission lines
- Interconnections with neighboring systems
Idaho Power's highest priority is to address hazardous situations, such as downed power lines. Crews then focus on restoration of the largest number of customers as quickly as possible and on repairs to restore service to critical facilities, including hospitals, water-pumping stations and police and fire departments.
