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.
