Idaho Energy Freedom

On her first solo episode, Jessa talks with Peter Richardson, an energy attorney who is the nominal chair of Idaho Energy Freedom, a blossoming organization based in Bosie, Idaho. Peter introduces Jessa to this organization and some of their recent projects.

Idaho Energy Freedom is a brand new organization based in Idaho. As an objective, non-profit organization, its main goal is to educate. The organization prides itself on its objectivity and its independence. Because it is a nonprofit organization, IEF is not and will never be financially beholden to a project, therefore allowing it to fully investigate Idaho’s energy projects and all their pros and cons.

In this week’s Sustainable Idaho episode, Peter Richardson introduces Idaho Energy Freedom, its goals and its current and past projects from the last 6 months.
