Idaho Falls Power is a municipal electric utility serving the city of Idaho Falls, Idaho. Since 1900, our mission has been to deliver low-cost electricity to residents and businesses. We have done this by harnessing the power of the Snake River to produce clean, reliable, hydropower. Idaho Falls owns and operates five hydropower plants that deliver about one-third of the city’s electricity needs.
In addition to the generation and transmission of electricity to homes and businesses, Idaho Falls Power offers a number of programs and services that benefit customers and the community. This includes the Idaho Falls Fiber Optic Network, which delivers high-speed, affordable, internet capability for homes and businesses.
Idaho Falls Fiber is a fiber optic infrastructure owned by Idaho Falls Power. Since 2002, Idaho Falls Fiber has provided the infrastructure for businesses to access the fastest internet possible. In 2019, Idaho Falls Fiber started expanding its network, so local residents can take advantage of high-speed internet in their homes.
Idaho Falls Power is part of the Carbon Free Power Project (CFPP) being developed by Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (UAMPS). The goal of the CFPP is to provide safe, reliable, and cost competitive clean energy to communities across the Intermountain West. The CFPP will use small modular reactor (SMR) power plants developed by NuScale.
Construction is currently underway to improve power transmission capacity and provide needed reliability investments to the power system serving the northern portion of the City of Idaho Falls and also benefitting all of eastern Idaho’s transmission grid.
Idaho Falls Power offers several energy-saving programs for residential and business customers. These programs help customers save money by eliminating wasted energy and reducing the cost of energy-efficient products and/or services. Whether it’s implementing energy conservation measures or installing efficient appliances and heating systems, we have the solutions to help Idaho Falls residents and businesses achieve significant energy reduction and savings.
