Net Metering

IFP’s net metering program is designed to allow customers to generate electricity through the use of renewable energy sources while maintaining a connection to the City’s electrical grid, providing a reliable source of energy when the customer’s system is not generating sufficient energy to meet their demand for energy. It also allows our customers to offset their electricity consumption with the production of renewable energy and to sell excess electricity back to the City’s grid if their system generates more electricity than is needed. For more information, please email us or call (208) 612-8436.
