Our New Department

Energy Conservation

Aug 25, 2011  Comment

Yukon Energy has a new department. The Energy Conservation Department has been formed to integrate energy conservation and efficiencies into Yukon Energy’s operations.

Energy conservation is an important element in helping us meet Yukon’s growing energy needs. At the energy charrette we hosted this past spring, and later in public and stakeholder surveys, we heard a very clear message from Yukoners that energy conservation had to be a major component of our energy planning. Creating a new department shows Yukon Energy's commitment to making energy conservation an essential part of what we do.

The two-person department made up of Manager Jessica Thiessen and Administrator Stephanie Whitehead will work on moving forward with Yukon-wide conservation programs that involve the public, private, and industrial sectors. They'll also focus on the Corporation’s own energy use, since it's important that Yukon Energy 'walk the talk'.
