I’ve been meaning to post this link for ages, along with some others, but the others are just not materializing, so I’m going to post this one on it’s own because it’s something important for people to know back home.

Although Canada only derives 19% of their electricity from coal, that amount is significantly higher in the provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Nova Scotia – at 70% of electricity being generated by coal.  Canada is attempting to reduce this number by 2020, to make Canada a non-emitting electricity producer.  However, in so doing, that means that this 19% of electricity is going to have to come from somewhere else. 


Bullfrog energy is doing a wonderful job in BC and Alberta, providing an alternative to naturally damaging hydroelectric energy and coal, providing electricity from wind and conservationist hydro.  Their prices are slighty more expensive than the regular electricity at home, but only minimally, and it’s possible to switch from BC Hydro at any point to support a company that is trying to make a difference in our world.
