Like all rates and riders, any adjustment to Rider F is approved by the Yukon Utilities Board before it is applied to customer bills. Information about ATCO Electric Yukon and Yukon Energy's combined Diesel Fuel Price Variance (Rider F) account balance can be found in the latest quarter-end report.
