Geocaching

Idaho Powercache Challenge!

Join Idaho Power and Roland on the River for an Outdoor Adventure!

All of our “powercaches,” also known as geocaches, are located on Idaho Power land, so feel free to explore while you visit. We ask only that you leave these sites as you find them, so others can share the fun and excitement of discovery.

What is Geocaching?

Geocaching is an outdoor adventure game played by global positioning system (GPS) users. Participants search for hidden containers, called geocaches, and then share their experiences online. Caches are typically waterproof containers of varying sizes and shapes, holding miscellaneous items such as logbooks and trinkets. Individuals and organizations have set up caches all over the world and share the locations on a world-wide geocaching website.

Idaho Power’s Hydroelectric System

At Idaho Power we work hard every day to bring energy to your door. We do it safely and proudly by planning for the future, caring for the environment, today and every day.

The bulk of our power generating ability comes from our 17 hydroelectric power plants along the Snake River and its tributaries. We are proud to be one of the nation’s few investor-owned utilities with a significant hydroelectric generating base.

For more than 100 years, our history has been based on using clean, renewable generation resources like our hydroelectric plants that have little, if any, greenhouse gas emissions. To this end, we promote energy efficiency and encourage our customers to make wise and efficient use of all resources, including electricity.
