Idaho Power Says Electricity Bills Could Drop
Idaho Power says its customers could see their electricity bills drop nearly 16 percent this summer because water levels are so high this season.
The company says the average home electric bill would drop more than $10 from about $82 to about $72.
In the winter, the average home bill would drop more than $11.
Idaho Power serves about 450,000 customers in Southwest Idaho and Eastern Oregon. It filed papers with the Idaho Public Utilities Commission on Thursday afternoon proposing the rate cut.
Due to this year’s extra water, Idaho Power is able to generate more electricity in its hydroelectric dams.
