Clean Today. Cleaner Tomorrow.®


At Idaho Power, our commitment to serving customers and communities with reliable, affordable energy has been the hallmark of our 100-year history. As we continue the next century of service, we are building on that foundation with an exciting mission:

100% clean energy by 2045

Not only is this goal meaningful to us, it’s important to many of our customers, the communities we serve and the places we call home. Learn how we’re moving forward — today, tomorrow and together.

This energy mix shows the energy we generate from company-owned resources and energy we buy through long-term contracts with wind, solar, biomass, geothermal and small-scale hydro generators. The overall mix does not represent the energy delivered to customers for two reasons. First, we participate in the wholesale energy market and sell energy both to other utilities and to retail customers. Second, some of our purchased power from renewable sources comes with a Renewable Energy Credit, or REC, which we sell to keep customer prices low.

We exited one coal-fired generator in 2019 and another in 2020. We are strategically planning to move away from our remaining coal-fired generation.

How will we achieve this goal?

We’re investing our time and our money today to ensure a realistic path forward for tomorrow. Idaho Power’s strong hydroelectric backbone — along with investments in transmission, solar, wind and other clean sources — means we’re well on our way. Achieving our goal will require technological advances as well as a continued focus on energy efficiency and demand-response programs. While natural gas may be required for the near future, we’ll be looking for ways to reduce or offset this need. Keeping our system reliable and affordable will always remain top of mind.
