Here's a Step-by-Step guide on what to expect when installing a new electrical service to your home and business.
Electricity Heat in Diesel Communities
We’re committed to ensure safe, reliable, and affordable energy to our customers in our diesel generation communities. But did you know that using electric space heating can drive up costs on rate payers and may require significant maintenance on the community generators? We know finding energy efficient alternative heat sources (such as heat tape or heating pumps) is important, which is why we will make certain allowances. As per our Terms & Conditions (4.5), these electrical heat sources MUST be approved by ATCO Electric Yukon before construction and installation.

If you’re interested in installing any of these alternative electrical heating options, please visit our office or call us to start your application.
We can help you in 7 easy steps
Call us to start an application
Call us at 633-7000 to apply for service. We will prepare a ballpark estimate of the project for you that will include a preliminary design sketch and brushing requirements.
You will be asked for the following:
- Legal Land Description of the site
- Date you need power at the site
- Estimated amount of power required at the site
- Your electrician’s contact information
We'll visit your site
If you approve the ballpark estimate, you will be asked to pay a survey deposit. This allows our team to continue to work on your design and construction plan. You will also be asked to either meet with an ATCO Electric Yukon representative at the location of the new service or to allow one of our representatives to visit the site to finalize the route of the new power line and stake and flag the area for any brushing that is required.
We design your connection
We will design the electrical service and prepare a final estimate for the cost of the new service. If you approve the final estimate, you will be asked to pay the customer portion of the new service before ATCO Electric Yukon will order materials and seek external approvals and permits. ATCO Electric Yukon will invest in the rest. We will set-up your site’s premise ID and billing account once payment is received.
We obtain necessary approvals
We will apply for permits needed prior to construction. Common approval timelines are:
- Power outages 2 weeks
- Highway Permit 2 - 4 weeks
- YESAB - 8 - 10 weeks
- Land Use - 4 weeks after YESAB approval
- Pipelines - 4 - 8 weeks
- Water Crossing 4 - 8 weeks
This would be a good time for you to speak to your electrician about obtaining an electrical permit for work done on the customer side of the meter. We will need an Electrical Connect Authorization from the Yukon government before connecting power to your new service.
We start building
We will schedule and build your new service once: all materials arrive, all external approvals are received, and brushing on customer property at the project site is completed by the customer.
Your electricity gets delivered
Once the Electrical Connect Authorization described in Step 4 is obtained, ATCO Electric Yukon will install an electricity meter at your site, energize it and begin delivering power to you.
We're here to support you if anything goes wrong
We will read the meter at your site each month and you will be billed for the amount of energy used. Our team of Customer Service Advisors is available Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to answer questions, share electricity-conservation tips and help you with your future electrical needs.
Call us at 633-7000. Our crews are on-call 24/7 to respond to power outages and electrical emergencies.
