Looking to the horizon There’s no doubt that 2020 has been a difficult year. The coronavirus pandemic has cost us lives, jobs, and time with our loved ones. And as we feel those immediate and tangible losses, fighting climate change may feel like less of a priority. But recovering from COVID-19 and transitioning to a low-carbon economy are not separate goals, and the need to halve emissions by 2030 remains. By making sustainable choices today, we can help our current situation while setting ourselves up for a much brighter future. The renewable energy industry is poised to create good, safe jobs, boost the Canadian economy, and protect us from the future crises that climate change would cause. At Bullfrog Power, we’ve been working hard to show how cleantech and renewable energy can enable a just, green recovery. Alongside RBC, we signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) that’s bringing two new solar farms, more than 300 construction jobs, and over $70 million of capital investment to Alberta (see p.4). We’re also sourcing power from the Fisher River Cree Nation’s solar farm, an Indigenous-built and Indigenous-owned project in Manitoba. This year, Bullfrog’s community projects are also showcasing the importance of building a vibrant green economy. The Centre for Social Innovation’s Earth Tech, an accelerator for climate and freshwater solutions, hosted startups and nonprofits working on automated tree planting, carbon capture, community-led water testing, and much more. The 2020 ventures earned and raised $4 million and created 31% more jobs compared with the start of the program (see p.12). We know that a green recovery will benefit us all—it will protect and uplift the most vulnerable members of our society, as well as make already successful organizations more resilient and attractive to customers, employees, and investors. As we all adapt to these challenging times, we want Bullfrog to evolve with you. In addition to green electricity, natural gas, and fuel, we now offer sustainability solutions that can help organizations shrink their carbon footprint while saving money. If you’re interested in improving your company’s energy efficiency (see p.11) or gaining energy cost security with a power purchase agreement (see p.5), please get in touch. You can reach me at president@bullfrogpower.com. We’re celebrating Bullfrog’s 15th anniversary this year, but our focus is on the next 15 years—a crucial time for the climate movement. We thank you for building a renewably powered future with us, and we look forward to making an even bigger impact in the coming years.

Sean Drygas, President of Bullfrog Power

The rise of solar: now is the time to expand photovoltaic power in Canada When Bullfrog Power was founded 15 years ago, solar power was virtually nonexistent in Canada. At the time, it simply wasn’t affordable. We wanted our green electricity to be accessible to as many Canadians as possible, so we sourced from wind farms and low-impact hydro facilities— but solar was still on our horizon.

Despite our progress, Canada still lagged far behind solar’s leading adopters. While our installed solar capacity was just over 2,500 MW in 2016, China had reached 78,000 MW. And while we were still stalled at 0.5% solar in our energy mix, Italy was running on 8% PV power.

In 2004, photovoltaic (PV) modules cost $6.18 per watt. But, as with many emerging technologies, prices were expected to drop dramatically as demand rose and manufacturing techniques improved. With this in mind, Bullfrog started our community projects grant to help drive demand for solar systems. Thanks to support from bullfrogpowered individuals and businesses, we helped fund dozens of solar projects on schools, in Indigenous communities, on hockey rinks, and much more. These installations help communities reduce their reliance on fossil fuels, generate income, and gain a tangible connection to the environmental movement. They also send a message that solar power is useful and desirable—it just needs to be affordable, too. By 2014, the cost of PV modules had plummeted to $0.85 per watt—less than a seventh of what it had been a decade earlier. Solar was still more expensive than conventional power sources, but it was finally claiming a place in Canada’s energy mix. Solar power made up less than 0.5% of Canada’s energy generation in 2014, with nearly all of that in Ontario, but it was expanding rapidly. In just two years we saw solar generation increase sixfold, to three TWh. the bullfrog buzz•6

The solar farm at Fisher River Cree Nation Bullfrog was eager to hop in and help Canada take advantage of a growing solar opportunity. In 2017, we started plans with Fisher River Cree Nation to source green electricity from their upcoming solar farm—now the biggest in Manitoba and the first Indigenous-owned utilityscale solar project in the country. Our longtime partner RBC signed on to purchase the green electricity we source from Fisher River. This year, we teamed up with RBC once again to sign a power purchase agreement (PPA) with BluEarth Renewables. This PPA is directly supporting the construction of one of Canada’s biggest solar projects, which is expected to commence commercial operations in April 2021.


Once completed, the project will be a source of green energy for the bullfrogpowered community. At long last, we’re on the cusp of accomplishing what we set out to do 15 years ago: bring affordable solar power to any individual or business that wants it— no roof required. “By partnering with Bullfrog Power to sign our first PPA, we benefited from their extensive knowledge of renewable energy markets and deal structuring. Their incredible team has helped us achieve both our sustainability and business goals, in our enterprise drive to net-zero emissions.” – Andrew Craig, Senior Director, Sustainability, RBC It’s our time in the sun, and we’re looking forward to helping other businesses go solar with our PPA solutions. The International Energy Agency (IEA) expects renewable power capacity to expand by 50% globally between 2019 and 2024, with solar PV accounting for nearly 60% of that growth. By signing our own PPA, we’ve seen firsthand how these types of agreements can quickly and economically bring new solar projects to the Canadian grid. No team is better equipped to help other businesses shrink their carbon footprint by bringing a new solar farm to life. During the past 15 years, we’ve seen Canada’s energy landscape transform. Where once there was no solar to speak of, now it’s one of our fastest-growing electricity sources. Over the next 15 years, our PPA solutions will help solar take an even bigger role in greening our electrical grid and delivering clean, cost-effective power to Canadians—and we hope you’ll join us. Contact us at business@bullfrogpower.com to see how your organization can benefit from choosing solar power.

How power purchase agreements can accelerate Canadian solar Efficiency Both physical and virtual PPAs enable buyers to contract directly with developers to quickly bring a new renewable project online.

Cost With the right expertise to mitigate risk, PPAs can provide energy cost security— and potential cost savings.

Visibility Businesses that sign a PPA can point to a specific solar farm they helped make viable, positioning them as environmental leaders and setting an example for other organizations. the bullfrog buzz•7

Bullfrogpowered: then & now To celebrate 15 years of giving Canadians a green energy choice, we asked customers from 2005 and 2020 to share why they went renewable—and where else they find hope for the future.

My fear of a worst-case climate change scenario has been steadily heightening for the past 15 years, but I’ve found that reducing my personal emissions has been a great way to alleviate some of my anxiety. This year, I took a hard look at where my emissions were coming from and made a plan to address each source. That’s how I came to bullfrogpower my home in 2020—to displace my electricity-related emissions! As we look to the future of the climate movement, it’s essential to elect governments who treat climate action as a top priority, and then hold them accountable! We signed up for Bullfrog Power in 2005 as we were intrigued by an article about Bullfrog that was in the Toronto Star. We wanted to reduce our carbon footprint and help prevent climate change. We think that individuals can work to create a greener world in two ways. One is by taking action to reduce greenhouse gases. That could mean backyard gardening, eating plant-based foods, driving hybrid or electric vehicles, and bicycling more often.

We can also think about where we have influence over emissions and find ways to reduce them. For example, does your workplace appropriately prioritize climate action? Do the companies you buy from have strong sustainability policies? It doesn’t have to be about doing everything you can right away—it’s more about finding the next right step for you. Tegan Gallilee-Lang

The second way to create a greener world is with government regulations. Our experience has shown us that issues such as acid rain and ozone depletion have been improved through political action. These are situations where advocacy by concerned people resulted in legislation that has benefited not only the common good of humanity, but all life on Earth. Compared to 2005, there are now more people on board with the need to take action on climate change—especially young people. In September of 2019, we were impressed by the thousands of people of all ages who marched in Toronto and other cities. That gives us hope for the years to come. Shari and Allan Baker

A ray of light for Alberta job seekers This year, the bullfrogpowered community helped fund rooftop solar panels for Prospect Human Services’ head office in Calgary. Prospect is a nonprofit that provides employment support and services to 15,000 Albertans annually, and they’re best known for breaking down barriers that prevent individuals from finding meaningful work. Even amid the impact of COVID-19, they’ve been successfully placing about 40 people a month into permanent full-time jobs. Kevin McNichol, Prospect’s CEO, explained that barriers to employment include physical and developmental disabilities, such as Down syndrome or brain injury, psychological and emotional barriers, such as anxiety or schizophrenia, and social barriers like discrimination or poverty. To remove those barriers, Prospect works to educate both job seekers and more than 800 employers. “We show employers the advantages of having inclusive hiring practices and how they can support a diverse workforce,” Kevin said. “They’re often surprised that most of these practices cost little to no money and can add considerable strategic, financial, and social value to their organizations.” Not all job seekers are successful in traditional classroom settings, so Prospect offers alternatives that incorporate art and the outdoors. “For example,

geocaching is an excellent means to teach people communication skills, teamwork, and how to cope with anxiety—critical skills in most employment settings,” Kevin said. “Most clients learn more rapidly using this approach because they’re practicing the skills in real time. Not to mention, it’s way more fun than sitting in a classroom!” Prospect saw installing solar panels as a way to practice their values, including innovation, enthusiasm, and drive. “We’re always looking for ways to incorporate new technologies in order to better serve our clients,” Kevin noted. “In this case, we leapt at the chance to reduce our emissions footprint at the same time.” After about a year, the 66.5 kW solar installation has saved Prospect $5,300. “That covers all installation costs,” Kevin said. “In future years, we’ll be using those savings to purchase critical infrastructure like computers and equipment for our outdoor activities. It can be difficult to secure funding for that equipment, but it’s essential to the people we serve.” We sincerely thank all bullfrogpowered individuals and organizations for making this project possible and sharing the benefits of green energy with Albertans in need.

“We show employers the advantages of having inclusive hiring practices and how they can support a diverse workforce.”

Energy efficiency: a win for climate and budget There is a common myth that to fight climate change, we need to make sacrifices when it comes to convenience, comfort, or profit. We believe otherwise—a low-carbon future will bring countless improvements to our world, including less waste and more resiliency among businesses. The International Energy Agency (IEA) reports that existing energy efficiency technology could account for 40% of the emissions cuts needed to reach the Paris targets1 —but most of that potential remains untapped. More efficient energy use can have a particularly big impact in the industry and services sectors. Since 2000, efficiency gains in IEA member countries have avoided over 15% more energy expenditure, or about $800 billion2. More than half of these savings occurred in the industry and services sectors, and there are many more efficiency initiatives to pursue there. As more Canadian organizations recognize the benefits of a strong sustainability plan, the importance of energy efficiency shouldn’t be overlooked. Not only do efficiency gains combat climate change and air pollution, they also save money and improve energy security. With considerable benefits for the climate and the bottom line, why aren’t energy efficiency initiatives more popular?

Many of our medium-sized customers, particularly in the commercial and industrial sectors, have shared that they lack the time required to assess their operations, research the most effective solutions, or apply for relevant incentives. Without a dedicated energy manager, these opportunities are often pushed to the end of a facility manager’s to-do list. But they’re worth pursuing: based on studies completed for the IESO and Ontario Energy Board, industrial customers could expect to improve efficiency by 8-12% in the near term3. To help meet the need for efficiency solutions with easy implementation and quick payback periods, Bullfrog is introducing energy efficiency planning. We’ll assess your facility and make recommendations for high-impact efficiency measures—most of which will pay for themselves in two years or less. As Spark Power’s sustainability brand, we can send technicians to do the electrical work, and we’ll refer any other technical services providers you’ll need. And unlike a traditional energy audit, we’ll provide you with a firm quote to perform the upgrades. We believe that a low-carbon future will be better for us all, and energy efficiency is a great example of how sustainability and business goals go hand in hand. By shrinking their emissions footprint, companies can fight climate change, showcase their values, increase resiliency, and even save money. Welcome to sustainability without sacrifice.

Sustainability baked in: how food manufacturers are going green As we adjust to life during a pandemic, we’ve all had to change our habits. And while many of those changes are restrictive, some are turning out to be a good thing. For instance, a recent study commissioned by Oroweat Organic found that B.C. residents are making more sustainable food choices because of the pandemic. The study revealed that 75% of the province is more aware of the environmental impacts of their food than they were before the pandemic. We reached out to Mary Bewick Clowater, the Senior Marketing Manager at Bimbo Canada, to learn more about how the food industry is taking sustainability seriously. Bullfrog Power: In your view, how do an individual’s food choices fit into the wider climate movement?

schools to hospitals, to encourage the spread of green infrastructure in our communities.

Mary Bewick Clowater: Every day, people make important choices to feed themselves and their families with nutritious foods, while also being mindful of their carbon footprint. Tiny choices can make a big impact on our planet, and that’s why we hold ourselves to high standards to provide great taste that’s sustainably baked. We want our consumers to know they’re helping the Earth by choosing Oroweat Organic breads.

Bullfrog: How do you ensure that sustainability is a priority in all facets of your organization?

Bullfrog: How is Oroweat Organic helping the environment and your community? Mary: We’re committed to baking and delivering Oroweat Organic bread in a responsible manner, which is why we choose green electricity, natural gas, and fuel from Bullfrog—we’re on track to avoid 185 tonnes of CO2 in our first year. We also donate 1% of Oroweat Organic revenues to environmental causes through 1% for the Planet. The causes we support include Tree Canada’s Community Tree Grants, the only national community greening, innovation, and stewardship program in the country. Through this program, Tree Canada offers grants and technical support to communities of all kinds, from the bullfrog buzz•16

Mary: Oroweat Organic is a proud member of Bimbo Canada, which has a sustainability strategy built on four pillars: Health and Wellness, Planet, Communities, and Associates. Sustainability is part of Bimbo Canada’s culture, and we keep our approach simple so that each and every associate can move us forward on our sustainability journey.

“We keep our approach simple so that each and every associate can move us forward on our sustainability journey.” Our Planet pillar is focused on reducing our impact on the environment every day through the 6Rs: Reduce, Reuse, Repair, Recycle, Rethink, and Refuse. Over the next five years, we’ll focus on reducing food waste, water consumption, and energy use. We’re also committed to sourcing 100% renewable energy for all of our facilities globally by 2025, as well as finding ways to minimize our impact through packaging optimization and responsible sourcing.


How sustainable is online shopping? To help maintain physical distancing and slow the spread of COVID-19, many of us are turning to online shopping—a survey by Deloitte found that 52% of Canadians are more likely to buy online during the pandemic. As more businesses offer online shopping and perks like free or same-day delivery, how does their carbon footprint stack up to pre-pandemic levels? Well, it’s complicated. An MIT study found that buying a product online can be more eco-friendly than visiting the store, but only under very specific circumstances. If the customer chooses rush delivery, for example, the carbon emissions leapfrog those of an in-store purchase. As ecommerce becomes increasingly common, both businesses and consumers are looking for ways to green their online shopping. Thankfully, simple actions like changing your delivery preferences or offsetting third-party shipping can make a big difference. Interested in offsetting your company’s shipping? Contact Less at info@less.ca to get started.

What can businesses do? Reduce returns. Help your customers choose the right items the first time by offering detailed product information and attentive customer service. Green your fleet. Leading companies like Rain or Shine Ice Cream have since followed our earliest green fuel customers, like Mindful Snacks and Ecotrend Ecologics, to cut their fleet’s carbon emissions and show their customers that the environment is a top priority. We’re also seeing rising demand for electric fleets. Don’t forget Scope 3. Third-party shipping can be a significant part of a product’s carbon footprint. Through Less Emissions, Bullfrog’s sister company, you can calculate shipping emissions and mitigate them with high-quality Canadian or international offsets.

What can shoppers do? Take your time. When companies need to meet same-day or next-day shipping deadlines, they end up sending trucks on long, winding drives to complete just a few deliveries. If you choose standard shipping, shipping partners can fill up trucks and send them on more efficient routes. Choose wisely. Returns are often free, but they have a high environmental cost. Items bought online are more likely to be returned, and these items might travel thousands of kilometres for processing. Shop local. Unsurprisingly, buying local means fewer carbon emissions. Even the international products from a local retailer were likely shipped efficiently in a full boat or truck. But if you buy online from an international retailer, the product will probably arrive by carbon-intensive air travel. the bullfrog buzz•17
