We wanted to remind you about a couple of workshops taking this place this week related to conservation of electricity. You might remember that last year, Yukon Energy, Yukon Electrical Company Ltd. and the Yukon government's Energy Solutions Centre engaged an energy firm to find out how people use electricity in the territory and where the greatest gains might be in terms of electricity conservation/efficiencies.

The results are now in and you're invited to come find out what was learned:

Wednesday April 18th
Gold Rush Inn (Town Hall Room), Whitehorse
2:30 - 5 p.m. for participants of last year's Conservation Potential Review workshops
5 - 7 p.m. for the general public

You can read a summary of the report here, or go to the bottom of this page to read all six parts of the full report.

Then the following day, Yukon Energy is hosting another in our series of workshops looking at possible energy options for the territory. This workshop will focus on energy conservation possibilities. There'll be presentations by Alexco about a conservation initiative between themselves and Yukon Energy, by the Yukon Conservation Society and the Yukon Utilities Consumers Group. There'll also be a recap of the Conservation Potential Review study results given the day before.

Thursday April 19th
Old Fire Hall, Whitehorse
12:30 - 5 p.m. for invited stakeholders
7 - 9 p.m. for the general public

If you wish to attend either day session, please RSVP by calling (867) 393-3897 or by emailing There is no need to RSVP for the evening meetings.
