Net Metering


IFP’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 consumption with the production of renewable energy, utilize electricity from Idaho Falls Power when the customer's system isn't producing enough energy to meet their needs, and to sell excess electricity back to the City’s grid. For more information, please email us or call (208) 612-8436.
