Partner: FortWhyte Alive

FortWhyte Alive, a nature centre, wildlife refuge and education facility housed on 640 acres of urban green space, is now home to the largest solar project in the City of Winnipeg. The 60 kW installation was made possible in part with support from Bullfrog Power and Investors Group, a bullfrogpowered customer.

The project will generate enough solar power to match 50% of the electricity consumed at FortWhyte Farms. In addition to the project’s environmental benefits, the solar power generated by the array is expected to save FortWhyte Alive approximately $350,000 in energy costs during the 30-year lifespan of the panels!

About our community projects

Activists and organizers across the country are working to transition their communities away from fossil fuels. We created our community-based green energy projects grant to provide critical funding for these local efforts.

All bullfrogpowered customers help fund these small-scale, community-led projects, including solar panels on schools and in Indigenous communities, education and training programs, and a cleantech accelerator.
