The Metro Toronto Convention Centre (MTCC) plans to offer green electricity to clients and event planners to help them reduce the environmental footprint of their events. In addition, the MTCC will use green electricity to power its administrative offices and electronic signage. To achieve this, the MTCC is partnering with Bullfrog Power, a provider of 100% green electricity from sources like wind and low-impact water power.

Under this agreement, Bullfrog will work with the MTCC to calculate the expected electricity usage of participating events. Bullfrog will then inject the equivalent amount of renewable power onto the provincial electricity system on behalf of the event.

Bullfrog will supply the MTCC with about 577 MW hours of green electricity per year to power the center's administrative offices and electronic interior and exterior signage throughout the building.
