Yukon Energy staff are investigating the cause of a power outage that affected the northern sections of Whitehorse and a part of Dawson City.

Power went out at shortly after 10 o'clock on Saturday evening. Power was restored to Dawson City within 15 minutes, and in Whitehorse within about an hour.

We believe the outage was caused by a piece of equipment at our largest Whitehorse hydro unit that malfunctioned. We replaced the part and the unit is now running normally. We will send out the damaged part to help us determine why it failed.
