Uponor North America and Bullfrog Power Inc. (Bullfrog), Canada’s leading green energy provider, have announced a green electricity agreement for Uponor North America Calgary and Mississauga, Canada, facilities. Uponor joins the growing number of Canadian organizations supporting green energy across Canada with Bullfrog Power, a Spark Power Company.
“We are working hard to reach our 100 percent renewable energy power goals by 2025, and this agreement with Bullfrog for green electricity in Canada, with our recent announcements of renewable energy agreements for Apple Valley, Lakeville, and Hutchinson facilities in Minnesota, brings us very close to our global goal,” says Bill Gray, president, Uponor North America.
Bullfrog’s green electricity is based on a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
“We are excited to welcome Uponor North America to the Bullfrog-powered community,” says Sean Drygas, president, Bullfrog Power Inc. “By choosing green electricity, Uponor helps reduce our dependence on polluting forms of energy, and transitions Canada to renewable energy sources.”
