Addressing our environmental impact has been always been a goal of Black Sheep. Since 2011, we have been reducing our carbon footprint and offsetting our energy use with BullFrog Power, Spark Power's sustainability division. BullFrog applies green electricity which comes from a blend of wind, solar, and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian energy facilities, to the grid on our behalf, to offset our yearly estimated energy consumption.
To learn more, read about how it all works or watch the video below.
Our green energy purchase is also helping support new, community-based renewable energy projects in our region and across Canada. Below is a video of a community-based project which our purchase helps to fund, the OrcaLab Solar Project.
In the first ten years, we were able to divert 39 tonnes of CO2e. That’s equivalent to 1478 light bulbs being switched to LEDs or eight cars being taken off the road for one year!
