On Saturday Southern lakes were affected by planned power outage

The electricity goes off for 3,700 people in the southern lakes place for 4 hours on Saturday.

“The work is being done on a Saturday due to the fact that this can affect faculties and daylight is needed for the amount of work required,” stated ATCO Electric’s operations supervisor, Tony Badry.

But you would possibly have ignored the notice.

If you visit Yukon Energy’s website, it seems like it’s only Johnson’s Crossing’s residents who will be without electricity. But since it is ATCO that actually distributes electricity to clients, their website needs to be checked as well.

ATCO’s “planned outage” web page has a listing of six planned outages, and the third one down talks to a electricity outage south of the Wolf Creek campground. The outage will span from south of the Wolf Creek Campground to Teslin outskirts, and around the whole loop from Golden Horn, through Mount Lorne, Carcross, Tagish and Marsh Lake.

On November 2, ATCO’s Facebook and Twitter feeds made the statement of the November 6 outage for between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

So, in case anyone missed the tweet, or the paragraph on their website, or the Facebook post or didn’t see a poster or get a call from the company – it’s going to happen.

If you’re one of ATCO’s 3,7000 clients affected by the outage, you will have to eat your breakfast early, leave a bit early for office with extra coffee and do not plan to cook or use any shop equipment’s.
