Idaho Power offers a variety of incentives for energy efficiency measures for residential customers living in Oregon or Idaho.
The Heating and Cooling Program offers incentives for residential customers who purchase and install qualifying energy efficient heating and cooling equipment. In order to qualify for the incentive, customers must use a participating contractor for equipment installations and comply with all program requirements. Eligible homes may be a primary residence, vacation home or rental.
Residential customers may also participate in the A/C Cool Credit program and receive a $5/month bill credit in exchange for allowing Idaho Power to cycle their air conditioners during peak energy times in June, July, and August.
Idaho Power also offers residential customers promotional pricing on energy efficient light bulbs through local retailers. See program website for a list of participating retailers and product availability.
Additionally, Idaho builders may receive $1,000 as an incentive for building ENERGY STAR homes, with an additional $500 incentive for participating in a Parade of Homes event. Contact Idaho Power for additional details or view the program web site.
