Wherever there is electricity, there are electric fields. From time to time Yukon Energy receives calls from customers concerned about the possibility that these fields could pose a health risk.
A number of scientific studies have been done over the years related to this topic. To the best of our knowledge, there has never been any scientific evidence found linking health problems with living or working near energy fields (which come from transmission lines, the wiring that delivers electricity to buildings, or from electrical devices and appliances).
However, Yukon Energy will continue to monitor and evaluate the research that emerges on this topic.
