Idaho Falls Hydroelectric Power Plant Tour

We provide tours at the City Hydroelectric Plant, which has been producing clean, reliable, renewable, and affordable energy around the clock for more than 100 years. The City Plant is located just south of the Broadway bridge. Tours for the public can be scheduled Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., and we welcome school and family groups or individuals.

On this tour, you will visit our energy services lobby where you can observe displays, maps, and dioramas which will help you understand how we generate electricity at our five, city owned, hydroelectric plants.
