regarding our |
position on nuclear power
An article in the Spring 2008 edition of the
Bullfrog Buzz led some readers to question Bullfrog’s perspective on
nuclear power. Nuclear power is not a renewable form of energy, creates
radioactive waste, and is not a part of Bullfrog's green power mix.
Bullfrog Power believes that conservation and renewable power should be
maximized in priority to non-renewable alternatives, including nuclear and
carbon-based generation. We apologize for the confusion.
Bullfrog customers are our greatest green power ambassadors. Want to spread the word about Bullfrog? Consider some of these ideas:

• Tell your neighbours about their green power option and give them $25 off their first bill with a personalized Bullfrog promo code
