Energy savings plan unveiled for Yukon

August 15, 2013   HPAC Magazine

Yukon Energy and Yukon Electrical Company Ltd. have come up with a new five-year demand side management plan made up of incentives, rebates and educational programs to help lower electricity usage. With hot water and space heating each accounting for 19 per cent of residential electricity use in the Yukon, one of the programs will look at using heat pumps to heat homes. In the commercial sector – where lighting accounts for 37 per cent of electricity use, and heating, ventilation and air conditioning add up to 22 per cent combined – utilities will pay customers incentives to encourage efficiency in new building construction.
