Idaho has substantial natural resources, including wind, geothermal, and hydroelectric power. The American Recovery & Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is making a meaningful
down payment on the nation’s energy and environmental future. The Recovery Act investments in Idaho are supporting a broad range of clean energy projects, from energy efficiency and the smart grid to geothermal and alternative fuels, as well as major commitments to research efforts and environmental cleanup at the Idaho National Laboratory in Idaho Falls. Through these investments, Idaho’s businesses, universities, national labs, non‐profits, and local governments are creating quality jobs today and positioning Idaho to play an important role in the new energy economy of the future.
