ICL’s energy associate Ben Otto joined Idaho Power Vice President Adam Richins and Boise State University Engineering Professor John Gardner on July 8 for a panel on our opportunity to create a clean, reliable and affordable energy future for Idaho. Hosted by the City Club of Boise, each panelist laid out his vision for the future and then answered audience questions about the challenges and opportunities to get there.
ICL’s vision is to protect our air, land, water, and climate from the wide variety of pollutants that come from burning fossil fuels. While coal power is cooking our climate, vehicle exhaust is our largest local air quality problem. Fortunately, we see an opportunity to address this challenge.

ICL has been working towards that goal for years, including convincing Idaho Power to exit the Valmy coal plant beginning this year.
Now that our electric grid is getting clean, we can electrify everything. By moving towards electric transportation, we leverage our work cleaning the grid to protect the air we breathe every day.
