Our 2018 Brushing Season

News, Energy Supply, Reliability

Apr 27, 2018  1

Yukon Energy maintains hundreds of kilometres of transmission lines located throughout the territory. Keeping our right-of-ways clear is crucial to ensure public safety and reliability of our system.

This year, we plan to clear the following areas:

  • Sections between Whitehorse and Aishihik
  • Sections between Carmacks and Stewart Crossing
  • Little Fox, South Fox, Little Salmon, and McGundy

Work is scheduled to start next week.

Please see the document below for further information about our brushing practices.

Big thanks to Yukon Energy for using mechanical brush clearing instead of poisoning the land with defoliants like so many other power companies do.
