Idaho Power's 2013 Integrated Resource Plan (IRP) identified the need for a 2018 in-service date for the project. However, the completion date of the project is subject to siting, permitting, regulatory approvals, in-service date requirements of the parties electing to construct the line, the terms of any resulting joint construction agreements, and other conditions. In light of the permitting delays and siting impediments that have occurred and are expected to continue, Idaho Power estimates that the in-service date for the Boardman-to-Hemingway line would be in 2020 or beyond.
