Community Energy PlanTown of Faro, YT

Publication - Sept. 15, 2013 - By Tom-Pierre Frappé-Sénéclauze, Ellen Pond, Claire Beckstead

The Town of Faro is located in south central Yukon, Canada. An energy and emissions inventory was established for Faro for the year 2012 based on a variety of sources. A community energy survey, completed by 21 per cent of households, provided basic information on residential energy costs, transportation and home energy systems. Data on energy use in municipal buildings and fleet was provided by the Town of Faro, while data on energy use by territorial buildings was provided by the Yukon Government’s Energy Solutions Centre. Electricity consumption by residential and commercial customers was obtained from Yukon Energy data.

There are several opportunities in Faro to reduce energy demand, use energy more effectively and switch to cleaner fuels both in the community and in municipal operations. These opportunities were discussed in a community energy workshop and several suggestions are made in this report.
