Energy fuels Idaho’s economy. Idaho’s energy supply comes from three primary sources: renewable, natural gas and petroleum. Electricity in Idaho is derived mostly from renewable resources, such as hydropower, wind and solar.
Concerns related to energy and climate include the availability of energy resources necessary for increasing demand in heating and cooling. As changes in climate increase, and Idaho transitions to more clean energy use, it is important to prepare for the likely impacts to energy sources.
