Social Media Policy

The intended purpose of Idaho Power social media sites is to serve as a mechanism of communication between the company and its customers. Submission of comments by members of the public constitutes participation in a limited public forum. A comment posted by a member of the public on any Idaho Power social media and/or online site is the opinion of the commentator or poster only, and publication of the comment does not imply endorsement of, or agreement by, Idaho Power, nor do such comments necessarily reflect the opinions or policies of Idaho Power.

Further, the social media sites on this page are Idaho Power’s only official company presence in social media. While many of our employees also use these sites, official company voices are found only on this page.

Idaho Power supports the following guidelines in our use of social media and expects our visitors to do the same. Please review our guidelines prior to commenting on Idaho Power social media content.
