Avalanche cut off fuel supply road from Skagway, Alaska, in January
Oct 15, 2020
Yukon’s power supplier faced a possible fuel shortage for its backup diesel generators last winter after an avalanche cut off the supply road from Skagway, Alaska, in January, according to the territory’s energy minister.
“We were in a position where fuel was very scarce, and we were in a critical point,” said Minister Ranj Pillai, responding to opposition questions in the legislature Wednesday.
Through an Access to Information request, the opposition Yukon Party obtained a Jan. 16 email to senior management at the Yukon Energy Corporation. The sender’s name is redacted, but they appear to be an employee of Yukon Energy Corporation.
