Toronto, March 25, 2015—Today, Bullfrog Power®, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and The Keg Steakhouse + Bar announced that The Keg is choosing Bullfrog Power’s green natural gas for ten of its restaurants in downtown Toronto and Vancouver. Through this agreement, The Keg will become the largest restaurant chain in Canada to choose green energy with Bullfrog Power and the third-largest supporter of green natural gas on Bullfrog Power’s Green Index.
“The Keg Steakhouse + Bar is committed to supporting youth and, since 2001, has raised money for hundreds of charities across North America through the Keg Spirit Foundation. Our partnership with Bullfrog Power is extending that commitment and helping to preserve our planet for future generations,” said David Aisenstat, CEO, The Keg Steakhouse + Bar. “The Keg is proud to be working with Bullfrog Power to reduce its environmental impact, support new renewable energy projects across Canada and inspire the next generation to keep making sustainable choices.”
Sourced from a unique, ground-breaking methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfills, Bullfrog Power’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 ensures green natural gas is put into the national pipeline to match the amount of conventional natural gas that each bullfrogpowered The Keg Steakhouse + Bar location uses. As a result, each bullfrogpowered location can use natural gas for heating and operating kitchen facilities without contributing to climate change.
“The Keg is taking its strong commitment to youth in an inspirational new direction by choosing Bullfrog Power’s green energy to reduce the environmental impact of its bullfrogpowered locations,” said Peter Melanson, CEO, Bullfrog Power. “With green natural gas, The Keg is supporting a unique and innovative environmental solution that demonstrates to guests that it is thinking about our future by acting today.”
