July 2017


In June, more than 70 people celebrated the unveiling of three new wind turbines at the Ellershouse Wind Farm in Nova Scotia. The farm now has seven wind turbines generating enough green electricity to power almost 5,000 Nova Scotia homes. Bullfrog supported the launch and expansion of the project, and sources the power produced by the wind farm for bullfrogpowered customers in the Maritimes. 

The ribbon cutting included developer Minas Energy, Alternative Resource Energy Authority, which owns the facility, and East Coast Credit Union, a Bullfrog customer.

Thanks to the bullfrogpowered community for your continued support!


Salt Spring student awarded solar scholarship

Gulf Islands Secondary School, located on Salt Spring Island, B.C., is not your average high school. That's because it's home to an 84-panel solar system—and those panels help fund an annual scholarship for a student pursuing post-secondary environmental studies.

This year's recipient of the Solar Scholarship is Andrew Chan—who volunteered almost 400 hours to help install renewable energy systems in the region. Congratulations, Andrew!

A tale of two hats: One Bullfrog's dilemma

We recently received an email from longtime Bullfrog customer Donna Grant, asking for a new Bullfrog cap for her husband:

"[My husband] has been wearing one of your ball caps for 10 years [photo above left], promoting Bullfrog every chance he gets. He's doing a good environmental deed by keeping his cap, but it's getting to the point that my mother refuses to be seen in public with him wearing it! Would it be possible to send us a new one?"

Thanks for the email, Donna! We hope your husband enjoys his new lid. Don't be afraid to reach out to replace your well-worn Bullfrog cap or bullfrogpowered lawn sign—email us at today!

Clean Energy Canada's Merran Smith writes: "Growing the clean energy economy creates jobs for workers right across the spectrum. Both Canada and China know this. And they know that tackling climate change requires smarter, cleaner, less wasteful technologies throughout the entire economy." Read on.
