About Peak Smart

Peak Smart Home is the first program in Yukon Energy’s suite of Peak Smart programs. These programs put the power in your hands to help us build a more sustainable energy future.

Peak Smart was born out of a two-year residential pilot program, delivered by Yukon Energy, ATCO Electric Yukon, Yukon Development Corporation and Natural Resources Canada. The goal was to shift peak energy demands for power during the cold winter months using utility-controlled electric baseboard heater thermostats and hot water tank controllers, to reduce the amount of diesel we need to use.

With the help of over 400 Yukoners, the pilot program showed us that Yukoners are keen to use this technology and that programs like this can help the territory use less diesel to generate power while keeping Yukoners safe and warm.
