HALIFAX – The Wooden Monkey in downtown Halifax is among the first business in Atlantic Canada to sign up with Ontario-based Bullfrog Power, which calls itself “Canada’s 100 per cent green electricity provider”; Wolfville, N.S.-based Just Us! Coffee Roasters Co-op has also made the switch.
The company announced its move into Nova Scotia’s electricity market at a recent event hosted by the Wooden Monkey restaurant and bar. Bullfrog Power, which was already available in B.C., Alberta and Ontario, has since added Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and P.E.I. to its regional roster.
Launched in 2005, for an additional fee Bullfrog allows businesses and homeowners to effectively use renewable electricity. It matches whatever juice clients use by pumping clean wind and hydro, that’s been certified as low impact by Environment Canada, back into the local power grid. Bullfrog expects to source its green power in Atlantic Canada from wind farms and hydro facilities in New Brunswick and P.E.I.
