Oilfields Regional Arena scores a solar milestone

The Town of Black Diamond in Alberta is one of Bullfrog's earliest community project partners (since 2013!). The Town's Oilfields Regional Arena generates solar energy from its rooftop array—a project made possible with support from the Bullfrog community. The latest milestone: the Arena's solar roof has produced more than 170,000 kWh of clean energy from January 2014 to the end of March 2018—displacing the equivalent of 122 metric tons of CO2. That's the equivalent of not consuming 13,000 gallons of gasoline!
