Rocky Mountain Power’s Blue SkySM renewable energy program offers Idaho residential and small non-residential customers the opportunity to support renewable energy through the Block program.

Blue Sky customers not only support renewable energy production from newly developed facilities in the Western region, but also help make smaller-scale renewable energy projects possible in the communities we serve beyond Pacific Power’s investments.  

  • Blue Sky Block lets you support Green-e Energy Certified Western region wind resources in 100 kilowatt-hour (kwh) increments called blocks for an additional fixed cost of $1.95 per block per month. You also help to build smaller scale community-based renewable energy projects. You can buy as many blocks as you'd like, allowing you to green a portion or all your energy use.
  • Blue Sky QS is a program for businesses that want to make large wind energy purchases at a reduced cost. With Blue Sky QS, you get a "Quantity Savings" for buying at least 101 blocks of Blue Sky per month. The cost starts at $1.94 per 100 kilowatt-hours and is based on a sliding scale. The more you buy, the less the per unit (block) cost.
