Understanding Canada's current electricity challenge:
Our primary methods of electricity generation are harming the environment.
Fossil fuel-based power generating facilities—that use coal, oil or gas—are a leading source of carbon dioxide, the primary greenhouse gas linked to climate change.
Fossil fuel-based electricity production is also a major source of pollutants, including nitrogen oxides and sulphur dioxide (precursors to smog), particulate matter (which gives rise to respiratory disease), heavy metals (mercury, lead, cadmium) and carcinogens.
Large hydro can have a detrimental impact on local ecosystems if it involves substantial damming. And nuclear power leaves a legacy of radioactive waste for future generations to contend with, as well as posing potential safety hazards today.
Bullfrog's green electricity option
Bullfrog's green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities, with at least 50% sourced directly from your region.
Wind power is among the cleanest sources of energy available, producing no emissions that contribute to air pollution or greenhouse gases. EcoLogo-certified low-impact water power must meet a range of environmental criteria to achieve this standard. For example, all electricity from EcoLogo-certified hydro facilities must be generated in a manner that does not adversely impact the environment and protects against biodiversity loss.
Bullfrogpowering your home or business with green electricity is easy. You continue to draw electricity from the grid—just as you always have—and Bullfrog's generators put renewable electricity onto the grid on your behalf.
When you choose Bullfrog Power's green electricity, you
