Bullfrog's Currents of Change profiles Canadians helping to transform the energy landscape through renewable energy. This month we're featuring Tegan Wong-Daughtery (above), Co-Founder of the Knowlesville Art and Nature Centre in New Brunswick. Support from you and other members of our community helped put solar panels on the Centre—the panels now power the building and serve as an educational tool for students about the benefits of green energy.

See a project (that you helped support) come to life!

Watch a turbine being built in this video of Gunn's Hill Wind Farm near Woodstock, Ontario. Gunn's Hill is the only wind farm in Ontario to be owned by a community co-op: the Oxford Community Energy Co-op. The project, which was funded in part by Bullfrog customers, was filmed during construction—and we've turned the footage into an educational video for you and your family to enjoy!

Have you visited the bees at the MTCC?

Last year, the bullfrogpowered Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) adopted four honeybee hives! The bees—which live on the roof of the South Buildingare currently hibernating for the winter, but will begin working like their usual busy selves come this spring. Bees are crucial to supporting our global food supply. To further support maintaining the local bee population, the MTCC is also accommodating its landscaping to support the little pollinators.

don-ross-2.jpgA message from one of our green energy champions!

"I've been a passionate advocate for Bullfrog Power since it began in Ontario, and take every opportunity to spread the word. For example, during the winter, I put my bullfrogpowered lawn signs in the rear window of our Honda Civic, and in the spring I put them back into our yard!"
