About Bullfrog Power

Bullfrog Power is a Canadian business with a conscience. The organization’s mission is to provide Canadians with easy and practical 100% renewable energy solutions for their homes, businesses and transportation that empower them to create a sustainable world for future generations. A double-bottom line organization, Bullfrog Power donates 10% of its profits to organizations that support sustainability. In Bullfrog’s view, this is business as it should be—good for society as well as its shareholders.

B Corporations are required to consider all stakeholders—employees, suppliers, customers, society, the environment and shareholders—when making decisions. Founded to use people’s energy decisions to clean the environment and committed to the principles of accountability and transparency, Bullfrog believes it makes sense to recognize these higher purposes by becoming a B Corp. We hope to use the opportunity to strengthen our policies and ultimately take our work for the environment and fellow Canadians to the next level.

Bullfrog's green electricity comes exclusively from wind and hydro facilities that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogoM program—instead of from polluting sources like coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear. A clean, renewable alternative to fossil-fuel based natural gas, Bullfrog's green natural gas is produced in Canada from biogas facilities that have met strict environmental criteria as defined by ICF International. By choosing Bullfrog Power's green energy, homes and businesses can reduce their environmental impact, support the development of new renewable generation in Canada and help to create a cleaner world for today and tomorrow.

The Change We Seek®

Bullfrog Power’s vision is a future powered by renewable energy.

Bullfrog Power believes that consumers—through their purchasing decisions—have a unique power to change the world. Canadians who make the choice for green energy help transform the energy landscape by increasing the amount of renewable energy being injected onto the energy systems, and by sending a powerful message to industry and government about the importance of advancing green energy.

Currently, thousands of Canadian homes and businesses are doing their part to address climate change and air pollution by switching to green energy with Bullfrog Power—but Bullfrog needs to grow in order to fully realize its vision.

Powering a green energy movement needs more than energy. It needs leadership—looking ahead and believing in a sustainable future—to make that first leap and maintain momentum.

Join Bullfrog Power today. Help lead the change.
