Idaho customers of Washington Water Power Co. will continue to receive a 2.3 percent rebate on their power bills if state regulators approve a filing made Monday.
The rebate, which trims $1.11 from the average homeowner’s monthly bill, was due to expire Aug. 31.
The application submitted to the Idaho Public Utilities Commission will extend the deadline one year.
The rebate kicks in when high streamflows enable the Spokane utility to increase hydropower production.
If streamflows drop below normal, a surcharge may be added to monthly bills to help cover the cost of more expensive poer from other sources.
Since the program’s start, there have been three surcharges and five rebates, including the one filed Monday.
