This Morning’s Outage

News, Power Outage Updates

Apr 15, 2014  Comment

As you are likely aware, we had a power outage earlier this morning. Power went out to almost all of the Yukon grid (except for the Village of Mayo and Keno) at about 3 this morning.

Almost everyone was restored by approximately 5 a.m., except Pelly Crossing and the Minto mine, and they should be back on shortly.

The cause was a generation problem with our largest hydro unit in Whitehorse (what we refer to as the Fourth Wheel) but we are still investigating exactly what went wrong in that unit.
