Idaho Power is an electric utility engaged in the generation, transmission, distribution, sale and purchase of electric energy and is regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and the state regulatory commissions of Idaho and Oregon. Idaho Power, headquartered in vibrant and fast-growing Boise, Idaho, has been a locally operated energy company since 1916. The company’s goal to provide 100-percent clean energy by 2045 builds on our long history as a clean-energy leader that provides reliable service at affordable prices. The company is involved in the following business activities:
We rely on our 17 hydroelectric generating plants on the Snake River and its tributaries, natural gas-fired plants and shares of three jointly-owned coal-fired plants.
to get electricity generated at Hells Canyon, for example, to homes and businesses, it’s first transmitted over long distances on transmission lines to substations.
Distribution lines are smaller than transmission lines and are used to bring electricity from substations to homes and businesses.
Of electricity to retail (residential, business and irrigation) and wholesale (other utilities, energy marketing companies and incorporated municipalities) customers.
We purchase from the wholesale market when additional energy is needed to serve customer loads or when purchasing from the market is less costly than running our generating plants.
