Near-Record Breaking Energy Consumption

Energy Supply

With Yukon in an Arctic freeze, we are producing almost 80 megawatts of electricity this morning! We haven't seen those kinds of numbers since the Faro mine was in production in the late 1990s.

But there's some good news. Because we are running our new Mayo B powerhouse plus the new hydro generator at our Aishihik plant (Aishihik 3), we are only having to use diesel to generate about six megawatts of power. Without those two new renewable projects, we'd be faced with generating more than 15 megawatts of diesel-generated power.
