Yukon's Reservoir Levels - mid-December Update

The water continues to be used up fast, we used 6% of the stored water in the past two weeks.  That's 11% of the stored energy used up from mid-November to mid-December.  And overall, we're about 2% lower than normal for this time of year. 

However, Mayo-B and Aishihik-3 should be online soon, which will make our "energy battery" about 10% bigger (those two projects add about 40 GWh/yr to the system).

Yukon's Reservoir Levels - December 1st Update

The energy storage is dropping fast - we used 5% of our stored water in two weeks and we're now down to 85%.  This is actually about average for this time of year, but I guess November was a cold month so we used a lot of energy.  Aishihik is fuller than normal, but Marsh Lake is coming down fast
