It's a busy time here at Yukon Energy. A couple of weeks ago we held a workshop and public meeting focussed on the idea of using municipal waste (after the recyclables have been removed) to produce electricity and district heat. We are now following that up with a second meeting. This one will delve into the possibility of using some of Yukon's waste wood (fire killed, bettle killed, or saw mill waste) as a source to generate electricity and district heat.
You're invited to a public meeting on this issue on Thursday December 1st at the Old Fire Hall in Whitehorse. The session will run from 7 to 9 p.m.
There'll be presentations from experts, we'll share what we've learned so far about this potential energy option, and you'll have a chance to ask questions and express your views.
