Canadian Blood Services chooses clean, green energy with Bullfrog Power

Canadian Blood Services and Bullfrog Power announce new partnership

Toronto—A new environmental partnership is being announced today between Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and Canadian Blood Services. Through the agreement, Canadian Blood Services will be choosing clean, pollution-free electricity for select facilities across Canada.

“Canadian Blood Services understands that healthy people need a healthy planet. Our commitment to green energy with Bullfrog Power is just one way that we are helping to reduce our environmental impact and helping create a cleaner, healthier future,” said Ann Lagrandeur, Director, Facilities Analytics, Safety & Environment at Canadian Blood Services.

The partnership between the Canadian Blood Services and Bullfrog Power means that Bullfrog’s generators put 100 per cent clean, pollution-free electricity onto the grid to match the amount of conventional power that select Canadian Blood Services facilities use. Across Canada, Bullfrog Power’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.

“Bullfrog Power is pleased to welcome Canadian Blood Services to the bullfrogpowered community as we continue to build the green energy movement,” said Ron Seftel, CEO, Bullfrog Power. “By supporting renewable electricity with Bullfrog Power, Canadian Blood Services is reducing its environmental impact and helping to support community renewable projects from coast to coast.”

In celebration of the partnership and Bullfrog’s tenth anniversary, Bullfrog Power and Canadian Blood Services are launching a social media campaign to raise awareness of both renewable energy and the importance of donating blood. For the first 10 days of October, Bullfrog Power will put 10 kilowatt hours of clean, pollution-free electricity onto the grid for everyone who attends a blood donor clinic, though no donation is required.
