Idaho Power is demanding that proposed 10 solar projects to come under one project.
This will allow the projects to be under a different set of regulations.
The Idaho Public Utilities Commission last week opened a case concerning Site Based Energy’s project near Bellevue and is taking public comments through Aug. 14.
Site Based Energy says the solar setups are stand-alone projects with different owners but with common ownership of some connecting equipment to save money.
Each project is listed as being able to produce 100 kilowatts. Projects that size receive a rate set by the commission and a 20-year contract.
