Our lighter carbon footprint
In March of 2009 we became founding members of Bullfrog Power’s leap into BC. We purchased renewable energy certificates (RECs) equivalent to our total home and office electricity consumption. For a $0.02/kWhr premium they allocate the equivalent of our energy use from the Bear Mountain Wind Park — BC’s first utility-scale wind energy project, located in North-Eastern BC. This small premium provides a financial incentive to the independent power producer to develop more renewable energy projects.
To date our commitment to renewable energy has reduced our carbon emissions by 4.1 tonnes.
