“Crombie REIT’s partnership with Bullfrog Power is enabling us to reduce our impact and meet our sustainability goals at Scotia Square. We are proud to work with Bullfrog Power to advance independent green energy projects in Nova Scotia, such as the Ellershouse Wind Farm, and participate in the growing green energy movement.”

In August 2014, Crombie REIT signed on for 500 megawatt hours of clean, pollution-free energy from Bullfrog Power, enough energy for the parking garages, digital signs and electric vehicle charging stations for Scotia Square in Downtown Halifax.
This partnership with Bullfrog Power allows Crombie to build on its sustainability successes to date, including upgrading equipment and completing lighting retrofits across Crombie REIT’s entire building portfolio. Crombie’s Downtown Halifax properties are all BOMA BEST Gold certified, and since 2008 they’ve reduced their energy consumption by over 12,000,000 kilowatt hours per year. They’ve also reduced their water consumption by 35,000,000 gallons per year.
Crombie encourages alternative modes of transportation and has installed bicycle storage facilities in their Downtown Halifax property and electric vehicle charging stations in their parkade. Crombie has also established dedicated carpool parking and has completed a parkade lighting retrofit that saves over 1,000,000 kilowatt hours per year.
