Clean Power!

As of the summer of 2013, the lifetime electricity generation from all of our installed solar PV systems approached 1 Gigawatt hour and counting! That is equivalent to 1 million kilowatt hours, and is enough electricity to power over 33,000 Canadian homes for a day, or approximately 100 Canadian homes for an entire year! We are proud of this accomplishment, and our clients are happy to contribute to this remarkable amount of green, renewable energy being contributed to the grid every day.

Our Green Initiatives

At ClearSky Energy, we don't stop at spreading the word about the environmental benefits of clean solar power.  We also take steps to ensure our back office operations are as green as possible too!  Some examples our environmental policies at work:

GreenGeeks.com

GreenGeeks.com helps us reduce the environmental footprint of our web servers and email services.  They purchase enough wind energy credits to replace 3 times (300%) the energy they use from the grid.  All GreenGeeks servers are configured to use the least amount of energy possible, and all offices employ rigorous recycling practices, ensuring that only legal and essential documents are printed in order to conserve paper (and trees!).  Their offices also use auto-lighting control systems to make sure that lights are not on when the spaces are not in use.  These are only a few among many environmental best practices employed by GreenGeeks!

 Bullfrog Power

ClearSky Energy is Bullfrog Powered!   Bullfrog Power is Canada's 100% green electricity provider.  Their generators inject renewable energy into the local and regional electricity grid to match the amount of power our business uses.  Bullfrog's electricity comes exclusively from wind and hydro facilities that have been certified as low impact by Environment Canada under its EcoLogo program, instead of from polluting sources like coal, oil, natural gas, and nuclear.
