Idaho Power Company


June 2001 - Idaho Power Company recently launched a green power program through which residential and business customers in Idaho can contribute a fixed dollar amount each month to support the development of renewable resources, such as wind and solar. Power for the program will be supplied by the Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) from renewable energy resources in the region, such as the Foote Creek Wind Farm in Wyoming and the Condon Wind Farm in Oregon. Customer contributions will be used exclusively to purchase green energy with program overhead and marketing expenses to be funded from other sources.

December 2000 - Con.Web reports that Idaho Power Company, which serves 700,000 customers in southern Idaho, eastern Oregon and northern Nevada, is seeking regulatory approval to provide a green power purchase option to its Idaho-based customers. Under the proposal, customers can choose to contribute a fixed amount on their monthly electricity bills to support the development of renewable resources, such as wind, solar, and low-impact hydro.

According to the utility, customer contributions will be used exclusively to purchase green energy with program overhead and marketing expenses to be funded from other sources. The Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) will supply the program using "green tags" or the environmental attributes associated with renewable energy resources that BEF procures in the region.
