Interim Electrical Rebate (IER)

The rebate began in 1998 as the Rate Stabilization Fund to help offset rate increases caused by the closure of the Faro mine – which significantly reduced the demand for power in the territory.

Yukon residents receive a rebate of up to $26.61 on their monthly electrical bills for the first 1,000 kWh they use.

Government of Yukon has provided up to $3.5M per year to this fund through a funding agreement with YDC.

The IER has been extended until March 31, 2019.
