Bullfrog Power

Climate change is the single biggest issue facing our planet. In 2019 Ocean EcoVentures teamed up with Bullfrog Power to further lessen our carbon footprint!

Our energy use is the problem. We experience rising tides, extreme storms and drought now more than ever because of our reliance on fossil fuels. We’re polluting our air and water, threatening species and damaging human health. And we’re leaving behind a legacy of radioactive waste.

We don’t have to accept the status quo on energy anymore. Renewable energy is the future and we must act now to protect our planet and put a stop to the damage we’re doing today.

Let’s put more green energy on the grid and help create a future powered by renewables.

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 bullfrog powering your home or business with green electricity. Any location can be bullfrog powered, 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!).

You also support new green energy projects
One more thing! When you sign up for renewable power through Bullfrog, we use your support to help fund new green energy projects all across Canada.

When you choose renewable energy with Bullfrog Power, you make sure that for every kWh of electricity you purchase, a kWh from a pollution-free, renewable source is produced and put on the grid on your behalf.

You can feel good knowing the energy going on the grid for you is coming from wind and water sources—from the waters of Newfoundland to the breezes of B.C.’s mountain ranges. You’re also helping to bring new projects online across Canada, like solar on schools and community centres and renewable projects with Indigenous Peoples.

When you choose green natural gas with Bullfrog Power, you make sure that for every unit of natural gas you purchase, a GJ or m3 of natural gas from a climate-friendly source is produced and put onto a pipeline on your behalf.

Our green natural gas comes from organic waste – like apple cores and egg shells – at a Canadian landfill or a wastewater treatment plant. At the sites, we harness the gas released from the decaying material, clean it up and put it on a pipeline, where it replaces the need for conventional natural gas.

When used, green natural gas releases only the carbon dioxide that is part of the natural carbon cycle and would be produced in any event by the decay of organic waste. It is the same carbon dioxide that is needed by the next generation of plants and animals to grow.
