Sandpoint — Avista and Hydro One Merger Public Hearing

Avista, the electric and gas utility serving Sandpoint, is merging with another utility, Hydro One.

Now is your chance to tell the Idaho Public Utilities Commission what you think about this merger. The Idaho Public Utilities Commission will take public comment on June 13 in Sandpoint, at the Sandpoint High School and we encourage you to speak up.

ICL helped negotiate this good deal for Idahoans. As part of the agreement, Hydro One and Avista shareholders will contribute millions of dollars for rate credits and energy conservation in Idaho. And, the utilities agreed to a path to protect Idahoans from the rising costs and risks of the Colstrip coal plant. Read more about this merger.

Join us before the public meeting! Learn how to construct an effective statement and get some facts about the agreement. Meet us at Idaho Pour Authority, 203 Cedar St, Sandpoint, from 4:30-5:45. We will wrap up in time to head over to the public meeting together.
