This essential project is needed to improve power quality and reliability, improve public safety and enable future growth around Mayo and Keno.
The Mayo to McQuesten Transmission Project consists of replacing the 65-year-old transmission line between Mayo and the McQuesten substation, and adding system protection equipment at Yukon Energy’s Stewart Crossing South substation.
This project is fully permitted and essential work that must be completed now. This project will:
improve power quality and reliability in the area;
improve public safety by replacing old poles and wires with new equipment;
allow for future growth and development in the region; and
put Yukoners back to work and support the economy.
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Yukon. It’s scheduled to be completed in mid-2021.
