We’re here to help you understand your energy bill, and manage and lower your use — in any season or weather conditions.

See How Temperatures Affect Energy Use

To see how the temperature and weather impacts your energy use, log in to My Account. and click on “My Energy Usage” from the Usage section of the menu bar.

Understanding Your Electric Bill

Idaho Power rates differ between summer and non-summer. Your total monthly energy usage also is billed in a three-tier rate structure in which rates increase with higher electric use.

With My Account you can:

  • Review your energy charges to date throughout the month
  • See average temperatures on daily and monthly usage graphs
  • View your daily, hourly and monthly energy usage to see how behaviors impact your bill

Complete the Energy Use Profile to get a general analysis of how your home uses energy, from appliances to heating or cooling, and find ideas and action plans to reduce your energy use.

Considering Payment Options

If you’re having difficulty paying your energy bill we offer options that may help, such as payment arrangements or providing information for energy assistance available in your community. You may want to consider leveling out your bill over 12 months with Budget Pay, for example.
