Stand Up for Idaho’s Solar

ICL is concerned about a solar segregation request that Idaho Power has submitted to the Idaho Public Utilities Commission. Please share your concerns with the PUC by March 9 as well.

The Idaho Conservation League participates in many processes and forums related to your energy needs, effects to our climate and environment, and significance to your pocketbook. And we’re concerned about a solar segregation request that Idaho Power has submitted to the Idaho Public Utilities Commission.

ICL agrees with the PUC staff that Idaho Power has not demonstrated that segregating solar customers serves the public interest. Here are ICL’s recommendations for what the Commission should do:

  • Support the primary program enabling Idahoans’ desire to control energy bills while investing in clean energy.
  • Recognize that Idahoans have a right to self-supply energy without utility interference.
  • Continue the fair, simple program between Idaho Power and its customers who are meeting their own energy needs.
  • Because we cannot choose which utility we do business with, ensure that utility rates are fair, just and reasonable.

You can also attend one of two public hearings in Idaho Power’s service territory:

  • BoiseMar 1, 7 pm, in the PUC Hearing Room, 472 W Washington
  • PocatelloMar 5, 7 pm, in the City Council Chambers, 911 N 7th Ave
