Businesses are key to the renewable energy transition
75% of Canadians feel companies should be doing more to address climate change. That’s a challenge the business community can’t afford to ignore. By choosing green energy, businesses can show their customers that they’re committed to sustainability, all while tipping the scales towards renewable energy in Canada.

About one third of the energy generated in Canada is produced by nonrenewable energy sources. As of 2018, the national energy mix was comprised of 60% hydro, 15% nuclear, 11% gas and oil, 7% coal, and 7% non-hydro renewables. As Canada has a decentralized energy production system, energy production and consumption vary significantly from province to province.
Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind, solar, and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities, with at least 50% coming from your region.
Energy efficiency is another opportunity for businesses to shrink their carbon footprints. Building retrofits, stronger fuel efficiency standards, and energy monitoring resulted in a 31% improvement to energy efficiency from 1990 to 2016 in Canada. That’s $46 billion in energy costs and 112 megatonnes of GHG emissions avoided. The global building efficiency market has nearly tripled in the last decade. We’re excited to be offering energy efficiency services with our parent company, Spark Power, to help grow this market.
As we all adapt to these challenging times, we want Bullfrog to evolve with you. In addition to our green electricity, green natural gas, and green fuel products, we now offer sustainability solutions that can help organizations shrink their carbon footprint while saving money. Please contact us if you’re interested in improving your company’s energy efficiency or gaining energy cost security with a power purchase agreement.
