Eatmore Sprouts, an organic sprout producer in Courtenay, is choosing 100 per cent B.C. wind power for the electricity requirements of its farm, Bullfrog Power announced earlier this month.Through the purchase, Eatmore will reduce its environmental impact and join the growing list of Canadian organizations supporting the development of new renewable generation in Canada with Bullfrog Power, which bills itself as Canada’s 100 per cent green energy provider.“We are choosing Bullfrog Power because we believe supporting renewable energy is one of the best ways to help protect our planet,” says Glenn Wakeling, Eatmore president. “By supporting local B.C. wind power, we are leaving a smaller environmental footprint and a cleaner world for future generations.”Through the agreement, Bullfrog’s generators inject renewable electricity onto the regional grid to match the amount of power Eatmore’s farm uses. Across Canada, Bullfrog’s green electricity comes exclusively from wind and hydro facilities that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogo program.For its B.C. customers, Bullfrog sources 100 per cent made-in-B.C. wind power. Bullfrog also uses the collective demand of its customers to support the development of new renewable generation in Canada. To date, several new wind projects have been commissioned in Canada to meet the demand of Bullfrog-powered homes and businesses.In addition to supporting renewable electricity, Eatmore is committed to valuing people, the planet, sustainability and creativity throughout its operations. The company produces its own compost to grow its greens and employees are encouraged to bike to work to minimize transportation-related emissions.Eatmore also uses wastewater heat recovery technology to heat its processing rooms and incoming potable water. Additionally, Eatmore Sprouts is constructing a new greenhouse using rammed earth technology to build mass walls and heated beds.— Bullfrog Power
