EV 2010 VÉ Conference and Tradeshow is bullfrogpowered with 100% green electricity.
This means, Bullfrog Power’s generators will inject clean, renewable electricity onto our regional grid to match the amount of power used by this event. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s electricity comes exclusively from 100% wind generation facilities located right here in the province and that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogoM program. By choosing green electricity, we are reducing the event’s impact on the environment, supporting the development of new renewable generation in Canada—and helping to create awareness about the importance of clean, green electricity. Both homes and businesses can be bullfrogpowered. And, signing on is easy. Thousands of Canadians have already chosen to bullfrogpower their homes, apartments or businesses and, like us, are doing their part for the environment and helping to address climate change. We invite you to visit the Bullfrog Power website at www.bullfrogpower.com for more information.
