About Idaho Falls Power
Bonneville Power Administration
The Bonneville Power Administration is a federal nonprofit agency based in the Pacific Northwest. BPA is self-funded through the sales of electricity and transmission services in the Columbia River Basin.
BPA markets wholesale electrical power from 31 federal hydro projects in the basin including one nonfederal nuclear plant and several other nonfederal power plants. About one-third of the electric power used in the Northwest comes from BPA.
In addition to its generation assets, BPA operates and maintains the majority of the high-voltage transmission in its service territory and promotes energy efficiency, renewable resources and new technologies to the region’s utilities.
BPA also through the revenues it collects from power sales to utilities funds regional efforts to protect and rebuild fish and wildlife populations affected by federal hydropower facilities in the basin.
