Where does Idaho Falls get its electricity?
On average, approximately one-third of the electricity used in the City is generated in-house by five hydropower plants along the Snake River that the City owns and operates. The bulk of the rest comes from the Bonneville Power Administration’s (BPA), a federal agency that markets power generated at 32 hydro plants along the Columbia and Snake rivers.
BPA also has one nuclear generation station in its fleet and some wind energy.
