While Idaho does not have a statewide net-metering policy each of its investor-owned utilities Avista Utilities, Idaho Power and Rocky Mountain Power offers net-metering. Idaho’s Public Utilities Commission (PUC) has approved each of the net-metering schemes. The net-metering schemes are limited to smaller, residential and small commercial systems. However, since there’s no state policy, the utilities are not required to offer reimbursement for net excess generation. Depending on which utility a customer has service with they may reimburse all or a percentage of the excess generation in terms of a kilowatt hour credit on the customers’ bill.
