Green energy is an unusual product in that you can’t touch, taste or see it. So how can you be sure Bullfrog does what it says it will do – that green energy will be generated and put on the grid on your behalf? Bullfrog Power is committed to the values of transparency and accountability and since 2005, we’ve been working hard to remain Canada’s trusted source for green energy.
|Bullfrog – the audited choice||Bullfrog pioneered the concept of an annual audit for green electricity retailers when it launched in 2005. Every year, our customers’ green energy purchases are verified by Deloitte to ensure their renewable energy was produced and accurately counted and credited to them. Our contributions to green energy projects are also audited annually by Deloitte. View Bullfrog’s audits.|
|Bullfrog – the highest quality green energy||Bullfrog sources the highest quality green electricity from 100% Canadian new renewable energy facilities. Our energy comprises certified low-impact hydro and wind power with at least 50% sourced from within the customer’s region. We only source electricity from facilities that have received EcoLogoM certification.
Bullfrog’s green natural gas comes from organic waste – like apple cores and egg shells – at a Canadian landfill or a wastewater treatment plant. Our green natural gas meets strict environmental standards set by ICF International.
We source our green fuel from biodiesel producers that repurpose waste streams such as cooking oils from restaurants. Bullfrog’s green fuel provides at least an 85% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions vs. conventional petroleum-based fuel.
