With most of their power coming from hydro, they are largely shielded from measures which try to put a price on carbon emissions. They also have been creative in trying to integrate local power production into their system (i.e. net-metering and leasing solar cells to remote ranches) which I think makes piles of sense in a large sparsely populated state. Shipping around electricity comes at a cost... Imagine if when you loaded a truck full of corn in Iowa, you also tossed in a couple pigs too.

Idaho power has to deal with groups of 60 odd people living way the hell up in the mountains hours away by car from any population centre with more than a couple thousand people. They have to build lines over treacherous terrain and maintain them through the brutal mountain weather. But, even with the formidable challenge of delivering power to a sparse population sprinkled over rugged terrain, Idaho Power manages to deliver some of the cheapest power in the country while turning a consistent profit. Part of that is because the same mountains that make it a pain to build and maintain lines also provide a lot of nice dam sites. But a lot of it is due to the fact that Idaho Power has done a great job adapting to the unique challenges of its environment.

Beating S&P so far 2010, a good sign for a utility. Solid management, strong green electrical power source not dependent on new technology development.

Very undervalued company with lots of positives on income stement. What can i say, everyone need what they produce and i have a gut feeling I usually go with, regardless of what the road looks like at present. But consistent earnings track record is hard to argue with anyway, so buy it and sleep good at night, they keep your nightlight on for you.

2008 earnings should rise as off-system sales increase due to improved capacity thanks to higher predicted water flows. That and its really cheap right now.

Stock is over valued. IDA earnings growth has been relatively flat over the last several years.

With some of the cheapest electricity in the world, Idaho Power will be one of the first utilities to realize increased revenue from electric power consumption for transportation.
