Local Energy Efficiency Funds

In a commitment to a healthy environment and the communities we live and work in, Idaho Power administers grants supporting energy efficiency within the communities we serve. We encourage customers in our Idaho service area to apply for funding for short-term projects and activities.


Eligible projects include demonstration, research and other direct kilowatt or kilowatt-hour savings projects not included in larger energy efficiency programs.

Projects for training, education or promotion that aren’t part of a larger program are also eligible.


Receive financial support by demonstrating these criteria:

  • Be cost-effective for Idaho Power’s electrical system
  • Advance Idaho Power’s energy efficiency efforts
  • Use proven technology

Additional considerations for projects include:

  • Number of customers benefiting
  • The customer segment served
  • The geographic reach of the project

Apply for Funds

Apply by completing a Local Energy Efficiency Funds Application. Individual or organizational requests may not exceed $10,000. Requests are reviewed upon receipt and subject to approval by Idaho Power.

Funding for these grants comes from the Conservation Charge collected monthly from Idaho customers as approved by the Idaho Public Utilities Commission.
