Idaho Power Company

Idaho Power offers a variety of incentives for residential customers in Idaho and Oregon. Rebates from $20 - $50 are offered for select Energy Star qualified appliances covered under the Home Products Program. Meanwhile, the Heating and Cooling Program offers incentives for residential customers who purchase and have installed qualifying air source heat pumps, open loop water source heat pumps, forced air furnaces, and evaporative coolers that meet program requirements. In order to qualify for the incentive customers must use a participating company for heat pump installations and comply with all program requirements. Rebates in this program may vary according the whether the equipment is installed in new or existing homes. Single family existing homes may qualify for Idaho Power's Home Improvement Program, which offers incentives for attic, wall, and floor insulation as well as for air and duct sealing. These incentives are offered on a per square foot or per linear foot basis. Idaho home builders are also eligible for incentives, and can receive a $1000 rebate for building ENERGY STAR homes, and an additional $500 for participating in the Parade of Homes marketing program.
