Net Metering

Idaho Falls Power's net metering program allows customers to generate their own electricity, through the use of renewable energy sources, while maintaining a connection to the City’s electrical grid. The program enables customers to offset their electricity with on-site generation and utilize electricity from Idaho Falls Power when their production doesn't meet their needs. Customers can sell excess electricity back to Idaho Falls Power. For more information, please email us or call (208) 612-8430.
