Canada’s leading green energy provider, Bullfrog Power Inc. (“Bullfrog”), a Spark Power company, announced that PenFinancial Credit Union is choosing green electricity and green natural gas for its Central Services location, and all six branches located throughout Niagara Region and in Dunnville, Ontario. PenFinancial joins the growing number of Canadian organizations supporting green energy across Canada with Bullfrog Power.
“PenFinancial has made the environment an essential part of our commitment to sustainability,” said Ken Janzen, CEO. “That is why we are proud to be partnering with Bullfrog Power on green electricity and green natural gas for all PenFinancial locations.”
Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power’s producers put renewable electricity onto the grid and green natural gas into the pipeline to match the amount of conventional electricity and natural gas used by PenFinancial.
Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities. Bullfrog’s green natural gas is sourced from methane-capture projects situated at various Canadian landfills, wastewater treatment facilities and anaerobic digestion sites. Through innovative technology, biogas is captured, cleaned up, and injected into the national natural gas pipeline, displacing fossil fuel-based gas while reducing emissions of CO2 and, more importantly, CH4 into the atmosphere.

Bullfrog also uses the support of its customers to help fund more than 150 new community-based green energy projects across Canada.
