Muskoka Roastery Coffee Co. is proud to choose 100% green electricity and 100% green natural gas with Bullfrog Power for our roastery and showroom to eliminate our energy-related emissions footprint.
Bullfrog’s producers put green electricity and green natural gas onto the grid and pipeline to match the amount of conventional electricity and natural gas our facility uses. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Bullfrog’s green natural gas is sourced from a unique methane-capture project situated on one of Canada’s landfill sites. Bullfrog also uses the support of its customers to help fund new community-based green energy projects across Canada.
Green Electricity: How It Works
The electricity grid as a sink
Think of the grid as a big sink that is being filled from two taps—one adds power from clean, renewable sources, such as wind and low-impact hydro. The other tap fills the sink using regular power sources, such as gas, oil, nuclear, coal and large hydro. Each time you use electricity, you drain a little water from the sink.
The dirty tap
Right now, a significant amount of the water going into the sink is from the tap connected to regular power sources.
The clean tap
But some of the water is coming from the other tap—connected to low-impact, renewable sources (represented by clean water in the picture).
Cleaning the sink
As the demand for electricity from renewable resources increases and clean energy infrastructure is built, more clean water goes into the sink—and less water from the dirty tap is needed.
Over time, as more and more people choose renewable sources, the water in the sink should start to get cleaner (and healthier for Canada!
Green Natural Gas
Green natural gas into the pipeline
Similar to green electricity, when you choose green natural gas with Bullfrog Power, you begin offsetting your natural gas use with green energy. Bullfrog makes sure that for every unit of natural gas you use, a GJ or m3 of green natural gas from a climate-friendly source is put on the pipeline on your behalf. Drop by drop, you help displace gas from polluting sources on our pipeline.
We’re proud to be making this commitment to the environment and to be creating a cleaner, healthier Canada.
