Your green energy premium goes towards three categories: paying renewable energy producers, investing in community-based green energy projects, and running Bullfrog’s operations.
- We use part of your fee to purchase renewable energy certificates (RECs) from the highest quality wind, solar, and low-impact hydro producers. One REC certifies that 1 MWh of renewable energy was produced and put onto the grid. We retire RECs on our customers’ behalf to ensure that the benefits of renewable energy are credited to them.
- In addition to supporting grid-scale renewable energy generation, your premium also helps fund community-based green energy projects like solar panels for nonprofits, schools, and Indigenous communities.
- The remainder of your fee goes towards administration and business development, including the annual green energy audit that verifies your purchase. We run our operations effectively so that we can remain a viable business, meet customer demand, advance the role of renewables, and develop new products to help our customers reduce emissions. We’re a certified B Corporation, which means our articles of incorporation reflect a responsibility to people, planet, and profit. Our public B Corporation assessment is available at the BLab website.
