As a response to the coronavirus pandemic and widespread layoffs, Idaho Power has declared it will not be disconnecting power for those who fail to pay their bill. That’s one of several changes Idaho Power has made to the way it runs the state’s power grid. 

 

Joining Idaho Matters live remotely today is Adam Richins, Idaho Power’s Chief Operating Officer to talk about how Idaho Power is adjusting to the reality of the coronavirus. 

As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
