Bullfrog Power, Canada's leading green energy provider, is announcing the launch of a landmark new product: Bullfrog Power for Student Life. This unique green energy offering is tailored to the lives of students and is now available in Canada. With Bullfrog Power for Student Life, students across Canada can join the bullfrogpowered community in fighting climate change and helping to build more renewable energy projects.

The ability to take practical action on climate change is already being met with enthusiasm from students. "Many of us are really worried about climate change, air pollution and our energy sources," said Gaspard Bijon, a student at Western University. "Bullfrog Power for Student Life gives us a way to make a difference in our own lives-and it gives us a voice on the issue. I hope more students sign up so collectively we can let the world know that Canadian students strongly support the transition to renewable energy."

With Bullfrog Power for Student Life, 2,080 kWh of green energy is injected onto the Canadian electricity system on behalf of the customer. 2,080 kWh represents the average estimated electricity usage of a post-secondary student over an 8-month school year. Bullfrog's green electricity is sourced from Canadian wind and low-impact hydro power generators, rather than polluting sources such as coal, oil, natural gas or nuclear. Bullfrog Power's green electricity commitments are audited annually by Deloitte.

"Students have always been at the front lines of social change," said Peter Melanson, CEO, Bullfrog Power. "That's why all of us at Bullfrog are thrilled about providing the next generation with a new way to help build a clean energy future for Canada."

"WWF has been a long-time supporter of Bullfrog Power because clean energy is essential to addressing climate change and achieving a renewable future for Canada. One critical way to get there is by engaging students, young people and all Canadians in innovative ways to take action and make smart energy choices," said David Miller, President and CEO, WWF-Canada.

Bullfrog Ambassadors will be visiting campuses across Canada to bring the new green energy option to students. Look out for Bullfrog Power for Student Life booths at campus events this fall.

Bullfrog Power for Student Life is now available at www.bullfrogpower.com/studentlife.
