Green Electricity

How it works:
When you choose renewable electricity with Bullfrog Power, you begin offsetting your electricity use with green energy. Bullfrog makes sure that for every kWh of electricity you use, a kWh from a pollution-free, renewable source is put on the grid on your behalf.

Continuing to receive your regular electricity bill, you will also receive a separate bill from Bullfrog for the additional cost of bullfrogpowering your home or business with green electricity. Any location can be bullfrogpowered, even spaces that are owned, leased or shared. No special equipment is required.

The electricity grid as a sink
Think of the grid as a big sink that is being filled from two taps—one adds power from clean, renewable sources, such as wind and low-impact hydro. The other tap fills the sink using regular power sources, such as gas, oil, nuclear, coal and large hydro. Each time you use electricity, you drain a little water from the sink.

The dirty tap
Right now, a significant amount of the water going into the sink is from the tap connected to regular power sources.

The clean tap
But some of the water is coming from the other tap—connected to low-impact, renewable sources (represented by clean water in the picture).

Cleaning the sink
As the demand for electricity from renewable resources increases and clean energy infrastructure is built, more clean water goes into the sink—and less water from the dirty tap is needed.

Over time, as more and more people choose renewable sources, the water in the sink should start to get cleaner (and healthier for Canada!).

Green Natural Gas

Green natural gas into the sink…err… pipeline
Similar to green electricity, when you choose green natural gas with Bullfrog Power, you ​begin offsetting your natural gas use with green energy. Bullfrog makes ​sure that for every unit of natural gas you use, a GJ or m3 of green natural gas from a climate-friendly source is put on the pipeline on your behalf​.​​​ ​Drop by drop, you help displace gas from polluting sources on our pipeline.

Continuing to receive your regular ​natural gas bill​, you will also receive a separate bill from Bullfrog for the additional cost of bullfrogpowering your home or business with green natural gas. Any location can be bullfrogpowered, even spaces that are owned, leased or shared​. No special equipment is required.
