silvergoldmagazine.ca COMMUNITY Good Living Show was “Bullfrog-powered”! Uniting in Song for Canada’s 150th S ilver & Gold was proud to partner with Bullfrog Power, to have our Good Living Show powered by 100% green electricity. What does that mean? How does it work? Why does it matter? You may have read a lot about climate change, pipelines and the Paris climate accord this year, but did you know that there is a Canadian company that has been giving individuals and organizations the option of choosing green energy? For more than 10 years, Bullfrog Power has been providing a green energy choice for anyone who is looking to reduce the environmental impact of the energy they use and take action on climate change. How it works – When you choose green electricity with Bullfrog Power, you begin offsetting your electricity use with renewable energy from wind and low-impact hydro. Because it is not possible to send electricity from a generator directly to a specific home on the grid, Bullfrog makes sure that for every kilowatt hour (kWh) of electricity you use, a kWh from a pollution-free, renewable source is put on the grid on your behalf. Any location can choose green energy (also known as becoming “bullfrogpowered”), even spaces that are owned, leased or shared. No special equipment or installation is required. How much does it cost? Bullfrog estimates your monthly usage based on the size of your home. Pricing for Bullfrog’s green electricity can start as low as $11.25 per month for a condo or apartment or $21.25 for a detached home. Upon signing up, you continue to receive your regular electricity bill and also receive a separate bill from Bullfrog for the additional cost of bullfrogpowering your home with green electricity. T he project is to present a concert of patriotic Canadian music, performed by a massed male voice choir consisting of 135 voices, supported by a brass band. Four choirs will take part, including the Canadian Orpheus Male Choir, the Burlington Welsh Male Chorus, the Brantford Men of Song, and the Cambridge Male Choir. To enhance the patriotic emphasis, the Royal Hamilton Light Infantry (RHLI) band will be in full uniform. Visuals, stills and videos will be part of the presentation, and aside from each choir’s individual performance, they will all unite to perform six pieces of music specifically arranged for this concert. The mission of this fantastic performance is to inspire the audience with powerful songs and uplifting music from across Canada, that will instil a sense of pride in recognizing Canada’s 150th Birthday. Join in this October 21st in Hamilton! Flip to page 6 for details on the Canada 150 Anniversary Concert.• Why choose green energy?
