State Policy Description

Idaho - Utility Green Power Option

Description

Green power options allow customers to voluntarily purchase “green power” from renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Few programs were available in the early 2000s, but today, utilities across 47 states offer green power options for their customers, and some states require that utilities offer voluntary green power programs. Customers may have to pay a premium for green power, while some communities offer green power packages at lower cost than conventional utility programs.
