Whitehorse, Yukon Photo Album
Another of the 3 road-accessible peaks at Whitehorse is Haekel Hill, 1,433 meters high (4,701 feet). It is the location of 2 wind turbines operated by Yukon Energy. The first turbine, a 150 kW Bonus unit from Denmark, was installed in 1993, then in 2000, a 660 kW Vestas wind turbine, also from Denmark, was added. A study is currently underway regarding the installation of several more turbines on the ridge. For much more information, see the excellent 28-page guidebook (pdf, 2.9 MB).
