EDMONTON—Western Canadian consulting and engineering firm ISL is running its 11 corporate offices in Alberta and British Columbia on green energy.
Employing Canadian firm Bullfrog Power, ISL will be greening approximately 1,300-megawatt hours (mWh) of electricity annually.
“At ISL, we strive to inspire sustainable thinking among our staff and clients-and across our industry,” ISL president and CEO Rodney Peacock said in a statement. “We are pleased to be working with Bullfrog Power to reduce our environmental footprint and to help show that simple, sustainable solutions are available to our customers and communities.”
Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power’s generators will inject renewable electricity into the regional grid to match the amount of power ISL’s corporate offices use.
In B.C., Bullfrog sources 100 per cent wind power from the Bear Mountain Wind Park, while Bullfrog’s power in Alberta comes exclusively from local wind power facilities in the province.
All generation facilities have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogoM program.
Bullfrog Power uses the collective demand of its customers to support the development of new renewable generation in Canada.
In addition to signing on for green electricity, ISL has engaged in a number of activities over the years to help reduce its environmental impact.
ISL has been named one of Canada’s 30 most environmentally-conscious employers by Aon Hewitt for two years in a row.
