Idaho Power Files Limited Rate Case in Idaho

News Release from Idaho Power

BOISE, Idaho — Idaho Power has filed a limited scope rate case with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (IPUC) requesting an overall base rate increase of $99.29 million, or 7.31% for Idaho customers. The IPUC will evaluate this request over the next several months, and any resulting changes will not take effect until January 2025 or later. 

Idaho Power’s request only focuses on recovering costs associated with infrastructure investments and labor expenses that were not included for collection in the company’s last rate case but will be benefitting customers by year-end 2024. The goal of filing a limited case is to balance timely cost recovery with customer affordability and reliability. Idaho Power plans to invest nearly $1 billion in its electrical grid in 2024 and an average of nearly $800 million annually over the next five years to meet growing customer demand and maintain a safe, reliable electrical system. 

Idaho Power is sensitive to the impact rate increases have on customers and believes this limited case will minimize customer impact as compared to a broader general rate review. Idaho Power remains committed to affordability, with prices 20% to 30% lower than the national average. For customers who may be struggling to pay their bill, Idaho Power has tools, programs, and resources available at idahopower.com/accounts-service/make-payment/help-paying-bill/idaho-assistance.

If this request is approved as filed, the average Idaho residential customer using 950 kilowatt hours per month would see a monthly bill increase of about $7.48. Proposed impacts for all Idaho customers are shown in the table below. Actual percentages will depend on a customer’s classification, the rate they pay, and the final decision by the IPUC. Oregon customers are not impacted by this filing.
