Shopping centre chooses green electricity
VAUGHAN, ON, Jan. 22 /CNW/ - Today, Bullfrog Power and Vaughan Mills
announced a partnership to provide Vaughan Mills with 100 per cent green and
carbon-free electricity. The shopping centre's green power purchase is
equivalent to 50 per cent of the usage of its common areas.
To provide the green electricity, Bullfrog will inject EcoLogo(M)
-certified green power onto the Ontario electricity grid to match the amount
of power used in the common areas of the shopping centre. Bullfrog's power
comes from clean, emissions-free wind and low-impact hydro sources.

partnership," said Tom Heintzman, president, Bullfrog Power. "The decision to
choose clean, green power helps support the development of new renewable

and we know that our tenants and shoppers also support these responsible
business practices," said Jamie MacLean, Marketing Director, Vaughan Mills.
"Choosing green power allows us to continue our commitment to sustainability."

commercial purchasers of green power in Ontario. Vaughan Mills marks the 14th
shopping centre included in Ivanhoe Cambridge's green power agreement with
Bullfrog. In addition to Vaughan Mills and 13 other mall properties, Ivanhoe
Cambridge purchases green electricity to match the usage for 100 per cent of
