What Are You Doing for Leap Year?



    Bullfrog Power offers five eco-resolutions for 2008

    TORONTO, Jan. 3 /CNW/ - 2008 is a leap year, so when you revisit your
usual list of New Year's resolutions, why not also consider making a leap
year's resolution? To get you started, Bullfrog Power is offering five
eco-resolutions that will help you reduce your personal electricity-related
carbon emissions footprint.
    "Leap year is a special occasion at Bullfrog," said Bullfrog Power
President Tom Heintzman. "Instead of making a one-year resolution, people can
celebrate leap year by committing to meaningful environmental action for the
next four years - at least until the next leap year comes around."
    Bullfrog Power, a leading provider of 100 per cent green electricity,
provides homes and businesses in Alberta and Ontario with an easy way to go
green and help create a cleaner, healthier environment for future generations.
All of Bullfrog's EcoLogo(M)-certified power comes from clean, renewable
sources like wind power and low-impact water power that displace polluting and
carbon-intensive sources like coal. Thousands of Canadian homeowners and
hundreds of businesses have made the decision to become bullfrogpowered(TM)
and support the generation of clean, renewable power.
    Bullfrog Power is offering five eco-resolutions that will allow you to
reduce your personal environmental impact and join the fight against climate
change.

    1. Turn it off.
    Your parents have been telling you for years. Turn off the lights when
    you leave the room. Also consider using power bars or switches to turn
    off electronics or appliances that use "phantom power," drawing energy
    when they're not in use.

    2. Switch to energy-efficient lighting.
    At your home and office, replace standard light bulbs with compact
    fluorescent bulbs or LED lights that use less electricity and save you
    money. Where you do have halogen and incandescent bulbs, use dimmers to
    reduce your use.

    3. Retrofit your home.
    Changing your bulbs is just a start. A whole range of options exists to
    improve the energy efficiency of your home. An energy audit will help you
    identify areas that need improvement. And be sure to explore provincial
    and federal rebate and incentive programs for home upgrades.

    4. Reduce your use at work.
    If you're like most Canadians, you spend the bulk of your waking hours at
    work, so that's a good place to look for opportunities to reduce your
    energy consumption. Use low-wattage LED task lighting and turn off your
    computers and printers at night. Encourage your employer to explore more
    energy efficient technologies and processes.

    5. Bullfrogpower your home or business.
    Purchasing clean, emission-free electricity from Bullfrog Power is an
    easy way for you to green your electricity consumption at home and at the
    office, reducing your environmental impact and helping to address climate
    change. www.bullfrogpower.com
