An American Pacific Northwest utility company – Idaho Power – has pledged to supply its customer with carbon-free electricity by 2045.

It will see the company make the transition from the quarter of the electricity mix it currently sources from fossil fuels towards more renewables. 

“Idaho Power’s commitment to move to 100% carbon-free future is an immense economic opportunity for our state. It will add jobs in the growing wind and solar industries and attract Fortune 500 companies that are demanding the price stability of clean energy, which isn’t tied to fluctuating fuel prices of coal and fracked gas. As Idaho Power moves to 100 percent carbon free electricity, we will work to make sure the company takes advantage of the incredible clean energy resources available in our state,” said Zack Waterman, Director of the Idaho Chapter of the Sierra Club.
