Idaho Power offers generation interconnection options for generation planners and developers wanting to build a generation facility and interconnect it to Idaho Power’s system. The generation facilities that fall under the processes on this website are typically solar farms, wind farms, energy storage facilities, etc. that are 2 megawatts (MW) or larger and PURPA projects of any size. This website offers information and resources to help interconnection customers navigate their generator interconnection requests through the applicable process to interconnect to Idaho Power’s system.
Idaho Power publicly posts all generation interconnection projects currently in the study process on its OASIS site under Generation Interconnection.
