Partner: Beach Community Energy Co-operative

The Beach neighbourhood in Toronto is home to some of Bullfrog Power’s longest-standing customers—which is why we were thrilled to help launch a renewable energy project in this community. In September 2016, Bullfrog and the Beach Community Energy Co-operative (BCEC) launched a 72 kW solar project on the roof of Kew Beach Junior Public School. The project—BCEC’s first—will, in combination with the school’s existing solar installation, generate the equivalent to one third of the school’s annual electricity use. A portion of the funds generated will support green initiatives at the school.

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.
