100% Wind Power for Your Home!


Blog by Sara Kalke | November 26th, 2010


Want to use green power for your home, but don't want to install a windmill on your roof?  Edmonton can be a green city!  Using Bullfrog Power, my home is now 100% wind powered!


Here is a little video explaining how Bullfrog Power Works:

 

Did you know that 62% of the Alberta Energy mix comes from burning coal?  Bullfrog Power is a Canadian company that provides 100% wind power to the electricity grid.  When you sign up for Bullfrog Power, they monitor your electricity usage directly through your electricity provider, then feed wind power into the grid to match your usage.  You continue to pay your regular electricity provider, and get a small invoice every month from Bullfrog Power for their service.  They donate 10% of all of their profits to organizations that support sustainability.  Check them out here: http://www.bullfrogpower.com/home/home.cfm

My home has been Bullfrog Powered since the beginning of 2010, and we are very pleased to be making a small difference. We use about $135 per month of power (this was our average before implementing some awesome energy-saving ideas recently), and paid about $8 a month for the conversion to 100% wind power.

Stay tuned for more ways to go green, make a difference and support renewable energy!

And remember, I'm never too busy for any of your referrals!
