|Status: The State has no unbundled service programs for residential customers.|
|Overview: No retail unbundling program is being considered at this time by either the Idaho Public Utilities Commission (PUC) or the State legislature. Currently, only large industrial customers can receive unbundled service from the local distribution company (LDC). The PUC regulates three LDCs: Avista Utilities, Intermountain Gas Company, and Questar Gas Company. In December 1998, the PUC established competitive practice standards for Intermountain Gas and set up a registry of gas marketers who wish to provide service within the utility's service area.
