Egg Farmers of Canada and Bullfrog Power® announce new environmental partnership

Toronto—Bullfrog Power, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and Egg Farmers of Canada (EFC), are announcing that Bullfrog Power is providing both green electricity and green natural gas for the EFC head office in Ottawa, Ontario. This partnership is the latest action to be implemented under EFC’s Office Green Initiative that aims to reduce the company’s environmental impact.

“Being environmentally responsible is a priority at Egg Farmers of Canada and we have a number of different initiatives that help us adapt our behaviours and habits at the office,” said Tim Lambert, Chief Executive Officer of EFC. “This new partnership gives us the opportunity to do more and show leadership in this area.”

Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power’s generators will put 100 per cent green electricity and 100 per cent green natural gas onto the respective energy system to match the amount of electricity and natural gas the EFC office uses. Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Sourced from a unique, ground-breaking methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s thousands of landfill sites, Bullfrog’s green natural gas is a climate-friendly alternative to conventional, polluting natural gas. Through this innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and put onto the national natural gas pipeline, displacing fossil fuel-based gas and reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.

“By bullfrogpowering their head office, Egg Farmers of Canada are showing real environmental leadership in their industry,” said Peter Melanson, CEO, Bullfrog Power. “Choosing green energy with Bullfrog Power means that EFC is both reducing its environmental impact and supporting community-based renewable energy projects across Canada.”

In addition to choosing 100 per cent green energy with Bullfrog Power, Egg Farmers of Canada has committed through its Office Green Initiative to reduce the amount of paper used daily by opting for online documents instead. The organization also offers filtered tap water, battery recycling programs and uses environmentally friendly cleaning products.
