Play for the Planet: Bullfrog Power, CARAS and musicians take action on climate change

Bullfrog Power, a Spark Power company, and The Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (CARAS) are partnering to bullfrogpower 2019 JUNO Week with clean, renewable energy. This year’s JUNO Week will be held from March 11 to 17, 2019 in London, ON.

Bullfrog Power is also partnering with Canadian musicians to help them take environmental action and reduce the carbon footprint of their Canadian tours. This year, East Coast musician Tara MacLean is bullfrogpowering her 2019 tour with green electricity.

Generating electricity from a blend of wind and low-impact hydropower; Bullfrog Power will provide the JUNOS with 290MWH of green power [fed] into the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity used—enough clean power to run more than 1,270 Canadian homes for one week.

The emissions reductions achieved by CARAS choosing green power is the equivalent of taking 530 cars off the road for one week! These positive impacts are why CARAS chooses Bullfrog Power for the JUNOS year-after-year. In addition, whenever possible, CARAS reduces resource consumption, manages waste and opts for socially and environmentally responsible goods and services.

Over the past decade, Bullfrog Power has been proud to partner with major Canadian musicians including: Anne MurrayBilly Talent, Blue Rodeo, Dave CarrollDave Gunning, k-os, Sam Roberts Band, The Sheepdogs, and The Tragically Hip have who have demonstrated their support for green energy by bullfrogpowering their homes, tours, concerts or companies. Through their partnerships with Bullfrog Power, these Canadian icons support renewable energy, reduce their carbon emission footprints, and help inspire action to reduce climate change.
