Idaho Power offers a variety of incentives for residential customers in Idaho and Oregon.  Customers may receive a complete home energy audit (including installation of select improvements) for $99 for all-electric homes or $149 for homes with gas, propane, or other fuel sources. 

The Heating and Cooling Program offers incentives for residential customers who purchase and have installed qualifying heat pumps, evaporative coolers, and other equipment that meet program requirements. The equipment must be installed by a participating contractor.  Rebates in this program may vary according to whether the equipment is installed in new or existing homes.  

Existing homes that use electric heat may qualify for Idaho Power's Home Improvement Program, which offers incentives for attic, wall, and floor insulation as well as windows.  These incentives are offered on a per square foot basis. 

Through the Northwest ENERGY STAR Homes program, Idaho home builders can receive a $1,000 rebate for building homes at least 15 percent more energy efficient than homes built to standard code. Customers who purchase a new, all-electric, ENERGY STAR manufactured home are eligible for a $1,000 rebate. 

Residential customers may receive a free energy-saving kit that includes LED light bulbs, a digital thermometer, a high-efficiency showerhead, faucet aerators, a shower timer and water flow-rate test bag. 

Idaho Power also offers bill credits for AC cycling, promotional pricing on ENERGY STAR lighting, energy education, loans of appliance energy use meters and fridge and freezer recycling.
