Substation Allowance

Idaho Power offers a substation allowance for large commercial and industrial customers who install new or upgraded transformer capacity in our substation facilities. This allowance is available to Schedule 19 Large Power Service using 1 to 20 megawatts (MW) in both our Idaho and Oregon service area.

How does it work?

The maximum possible allowance is determined by multiplying the customer’s actual increase in load by $71,006 per MW (not to exceed the actual cost of the substation facilities). For example, a 10 MW project in Idaho or Oregon would result in a substation allowance customer benefit of $710,060.

The substation allowance will be refunded to the customer over a five-year period.
