Nissan Canada, manufacturer of the upcoming Leaf electric vehicle, announced today that its Canadian headquarters will be switching from traditional energy sources to 100% locally produced renewable energy, provided by Bullfrog Power.

Bullfrog’s system is appealing – even to large corporations like Nissan Canada – in that it doesn’t require much effort to switch. In fact, the only difference they will notice in their power consumption is the bill they get at the end of the month (obviously, clean energy is more expensive).

The clean power comes from Bullfrog’s local alternative energy sources, like wind and hydro facilities. Once generated, the clean electricity is pumped into the regional grid to offset the amount of power that Nissan, or any other Bullfrog customer, uses.

It should be no surprise that Nissan Canada has stepped up to the Bullfrog challenge – after all, their upcoming eco friendly car, the Nissan Leaf (short for Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car) is being released this month and it’s expected to see huge sales in its first year.

The LEAF will be able to drive around 120 km in the city on one charge, and will have a very competitive price point on its release ($32,780 in the US – other countries TBD).

Want to be even greener? Sign up for Bullfrog Power before you start charging your electric car at home and your ride will be entirely powered by alternative energy!
