Boardman to Hemingway (B2H) Transmission with Transfer Service

(2019-present)

BPA signed a non-binding term sheet Jan. 19, 2022 that clarifies and updates BPA’s role in Idaho Power’s and PacifiCorp’s proposed transmission line from Boardman, Oregon, to Hemingway, Idaho. This proposal, referred to as B2H with Transfer Service, would allow BPA to reliably and cost-effectively meet firm power service obligations to southeast Idaho customers by acquiring transmission service on B2H rather than becoming a part owner in the line as previously considered. BPA released a letter to the region Jan. 19, 2022 and is holding a public process on the term sheet, with initial comments on the proposal due from stakeholders by Feb. 18, 2022.
