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

Mar 08, 2019

For the 12th year in a row, Bullfrog Power, Canada’s leading green energy provider, 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.

Canadian musicians also choose renewable energy

Bullfrog Power also partners with Canadian musicians to help them reduce the environmental footprint of their Canadian tours. This year, East Coast musician Tara MacLean is choosing to bullfrogpower her 2019 dates with green electricity. The choice for her to do this was simple: no special equipment or wiring was required.

Over the past decade, Bullfrog has been proud to partner with Canadian musicians such as Anne Murray, Billy Talent, Blue Rodeo, Dave Carroll, Dave Gunning, Gord Downie, k-os, Sam Roberts Band, The Sheepdogs and The Tragically Hip to help them demonstrate their support for green energy by bullfrogpowering their homes, tours, concerts or companies.

Through their partnerships with Bullfrog Power, these Canadian icons are supporting renewable energy, reducing their carbon emission footprints and helping inspire action to reduce climate change.

Why do the JUNOS choose green energy?

When you attend a concert or JUNO Week event, a significant amount of electricity is consumed to power the sounds, lights, cameras, and screens needed to create your musical experience. That power comes from the grid and may be generated from polluting sources like coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear.

By choosing Bullfrog Power, CARAS and the JUNOS ensure that green energy is put into the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity used by JUNO Week events and hotel stays.  For example, this year Bullfrog Power will provide the JUNOS with 290 MWh of green electricity—enough clean power to run 1,270 Canadian homes for a week! Further, the emission reductions achieved by 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.
