Bullfrog Power, a Canadian provider of 100% green electricity, has announced the expansion of its service to all Ontario residences. Bullfrog's green power is sourced from EcoLogo-certified wind and low-impact water power generators.

With the new service, customers continue to pay their base electricity costs through their existing payment channel and receive a separate bill priced at C$0.035 per kWh from Bullfrog for the greening of their electricity. Bullfrog then ensures that EcoLogo-certified green power is delivered to the Ontario electricity grid to match the amount of power the customer's home uses.

"Supporting 100-percent green power generated right here in Ontario is a significant way for homeowners to reduce their environmental impact and help address climate change and air pollution," says Tom Heintzman, president of Bullfrog Power. "We are delighted to be able to extend our services to provide all Ontarians, including renters and condominium owners, with the option to support clean, emissions-free power to meet their electricity needs."

Bullfrog Power also announced a new partnership with TAS DesignBuild, through which the condominium developer will provide green power to its two latest developments, M5V Condominiums and Giraffe Condominiums.
