Give the Gift of Energy Savings

EASTERN OREGON – Whether you are finishing your shopping list or just getting started, Idaho Power has ideas to give the gift of energy savings all year long.

  • Stay warm at home with sweaters, blankets or other cozy accessories. Turning down the thermostat just one degree in the winter saves about 3% on heating costs.
  • Upgrade your home or office with a new laptop or tablet, which uses much less energy than a desktop computer.
  • Make meal prep a breeze with slow cookers, pressure cookers, toaster ovens or air fryers. Small appliances get the job done using less energy.
  • Immerse yourself in your latest binge-worthy series with LCD or LED TVs.
  • Go high tech at home with a smart thermostat. And don’t forgot to check out Idaho Power’s $75 incentive for those who qualify:
  • Decorate with LED holiday lights, inflatables and outdoor timers to brighten the holidays year after year.
  • Grow into savings with a gift certificate to a local nursery to buy a shade tree this spring.
  • Cook up some savings by gifting glass or ceramic cookware, which allows you to bake at a temperature 25 degrees lower than the recipe recommends.
