Idaho Power - Commercial Custom Efficiency Program

August 04, 2023


Commercial and industrial Idaho Power customers that reduce energy usage through more efficient electrical commercial and industrial processes may qualify for an incentive that is the lesser of either 18 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh) saved per year or 70% of the project cost. Incentives are given to customers that are making complex energy efficiency upgrades to electrical industrial and commercial processes, motor systems, controls, fans, pumps, compressors, lighting, air conditioning, and refrigeration systems.

Idaho Power also offers Energy Management Incentives as custom incentives for qualified energy management measures based on the first year of demonstrated energy savings and the project cost.

Contact Idaho Power regarding the minimum required savings in order to participate. Customers must obtain pre-approval for all custom efficiency projects and lighting projects with estimated incentives of $1,500 or more. Customers will receive incentives once a project has been completed and verified. For more information, including an application, project overview, and service representative contact information, view the Idaho Power program website.
