Solar-power billing robs poor to pay rich, Idaho Power says. The state might change it

March 1, 2018View for printing

After months of contention, the Idaho Public Utilities Commission has decided to consider Idaho Power's proposal to make customers who install solar panels on their roofs pay more for access to the utility's grid.

The commission willl hold a public hearing Thursday, March 1, in Boise on a preliminary proposal from the utility to reclassify residential and some other customers who generate their own power, mostly through rooftop solar. That reclassification itself would not affect solar users' rates.
