Bringing Purpose (and Energy Efficiency!) to Historic Downtown Pocatello

Idaho Power proudly supported Craig Yadon and his wife, Mariya, owners of The Purpose Center – formerly the Peterson Building – in historic downtown Pocatello as they renovated the 22,000 square foot space to become what is a now a café, event venue, office space and executive suites. The renovation included completely redoing the building’s electrical and mechanical systems – that’s when Idaho Power’s energy advisors stepped in to identify where the couple could save energy and qualify for cash incentives.

Qualifying incentives included energy-efficient heat pumps, efficient interior lighting, high-efficiency exit signs, and a reflective roof treatment. The incentives totaled over $14,000 and will save an estimated 48,367 kilowatt-hours per year, enough to power more than four average homes in Idaho Power’s service area.

“It was really important that we preserved the history of the building, but we needed to update everything – lights, windows, everything – which made it a challenge. Working with the people from Idaho Power was a good experience and I appreciate how thorough they were. They advised us on efficient lighting and air systems, which was a huge help.”  – Craig Yadon, Owner of the Purpose Center
