The Yukon Environment and Socio-economic Assessment Board will host a public meeting next week on Yukon Energy’s plan to burn liquefied natural gas in the territory.

The Yukon Environment and Socio-economic Assessment Board will host a public meeting next week on Yukon Energy’s plan to burn liquefied natural gas in the territory.

The corporation wants to replace two aging diesel generators with ones that burn natural gas.

Converting to the new fuel required building new infrastructure to store the gas, chilled into a liquid state.

Critics say that Yukon Energy should invest in renewable power instead of diversifying its fossil fuel usage.

The corporation says using natural gas instead of diesel will result in significant cost savings.

The meeting will take place at the Westmark Hotel in Whitehorse on Wednesday, December 11, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.
