The Flynn Group of Companies bullfrogpowers its Northern Facades manufacturing facility in Toronto with green electricity and green natural gas
Toronto—Today, Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and Flynn Group of Companies, North America’s leading building envelope trade contractor, announced a new green energy partnership that will see Flynn’s Toronto-based Northern Facades manufacturing facility bullfrogpowered with 100 per cent green electricity and 100 per cent green natural gas.
“Northern Facades’ products improve the energy efficiency of new construction, so it makes sense for us to ensure that we do our part to reduce the environmental impact of our manufacturing facility,” said Doug Flynn, CEO of The Flynn Group of Companies. “Choosing green energy for the Northern Facades manufacturing facility is a powerful example of how we’re giving our customers greener options for their building needs.”
Flynn’s partnership with Bullfrog Power means that Bullfrog’s generators 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 Northern Facades manufacturing facility uses.
Across Canada, 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 into the national natural gas pipeline, displacing fossil fuel-based gas and reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
“Bullfrog Power has a history of working with the green building industry to take into account the impact of a building’s energy use after it is constructed,” said Peter Melanson, CEO, Bullfrog Power. “The Flynn Group of Companies is demonstrating real leadership in the industry by taking action on climate change and offering greener buildings solutions to its clients.”
In addition to bullfrogpowering its manufacturing facilities, Northern Facades is dedicated to reducing its environmental footprint and providing products to improve energy efficiency. The organization is in the process of an LED lighting retrofit that is expected to realize energy savings of 60 per cent. Recently, Northern Facades released its ISO Thermal Clip to help improve energy efficiency in new buildings. The ISO Thermal Clip System is a steel clip system for attaching cladding systems to various types of exterior insulated wall assemblies.
