At the Ottawa Community Foundation (OCF), we recognize the importance of addressing our environmental impact and therefore, we are taking an important step to reduce the carbon emissions footprint of our organization. We are now a Bullfrog Power client, which means that we are purchasing the energy needed to light, heat and cool our office space in a way that brings more low-carbon, renewable energy into Ontario’s electricity and natural gas distribution systems.
“Bullfrog Power is a great example of the creative approaches that are increasingly available to make purchasing decisions that support the transition to a low-carbon, renewable energy economy,” says Marco Pagani, President and CEO with the OCF. “This decision is also in line with steps we have taken towards socially and environmentally responsible investment.”
Bullfrog Power’s producers put renewable electricity and green natural gas onto the grid and pipeline to match the amount of conventional electricity and natural gas used by the Ottawa Community Foundation.
Across Canada, Bullfrog Power’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Bullfrog Power’s green natural gas is sourced from methane-capture projects situated at various Canadian landfills, waste water treatment facilities and anaerobic digestion sites. Through innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and injected onto the national natural gas pipeline.
Our green energy purchase is also helping to support to new, community-based renewable energy projects in our region and across Canada. That’s because Bullfrog Power uses its customers’ support to provide funding to these projects. Learn more about how the Bullfrog Power community is advancing these projects.
