Hyatt Regency Calgary is Canada’s first large hotel to support renewable electricity with Bullfrog Power, as the facility’s 13,500-sq.-ft. ballroom, gym and 22 meeting rooms are ‘bullfrogpowered’ with Alberta-generated wind power.
This is the latest in a series of sustainability measures the hotel chain has already implemented – including installing energy-efficient lighting, low-flow toilets and Energy Star appliances, and introducing a guestroom recycling programme – to minimize its environmental impact.
Bullfrog Power is a leading Canadian provider of 100-per-cent green electricity. All of Bullfrog Power’s renewable electricity in Alberta is sourced from EcoLogo-certified wind generators located near Pincher Creek, Alta.
To provide green power for Hyatt Regency Calgary, Bullfrog Power will inject emissions-free EcoLogo-certified electricity onto the Alberta electricity grid to match the amount of power used by the facilities.
