Bullfrog Power, Canadian renewable energy solutions provider, has just completed the rooftop solar installation on the office building of Prospect Human Services, an organization helping people in finding jobs.

The company said that it helped fund this innovative sustainability project by partnering with Prospect Human Services and Virtuoso Energy.

Further, this solar installation will supply approx. 66.24 kW of energy, or 76,117 kWh, with 80 percent of the energy being consumed onsite.

Commenting on the installation, Kevin McNichol, CEO, Prospect Human Services, said that “we’re so pleased to be able to install solar panels on the roof of our building. This installation wouldn’t have been possible without the grants we received.”

“The installation frees up capital costs that we redirect to our operations, allowing us to support more people to find jobs,” McNichol added.

Prospect had chosen Virtuoso Energy as solar project installer. Virtuoso also plays a large role in the Alberta-based not-for-profit Energy for All.

“This solar project was the perfect expression of people coming together to help others and the environment. Prospect has taken major strides towards becoming more sustainable internally and externally and we look forward to working with them in the Future,” said Kai Fahrion, Director, Operations, Virtuoso Energy.

The installation of solar panels on Prospect Human Services’ roof goes beyond providing renewable energy for their office in Calgary. Prospect is a central part of the Calgary community, with high visibility with employer partners and not-for-profit peers; their environmental leadership has the potential to encourage others to help transition Canada to a renewable energy grid.

“Prospect is already doing inspiring work in the not-for-profit sector, and it’s fantastic to see them becoming renewable energy champions as well,” said Sean Drygas, President of Bullfrog Power.

Bullfrog Power, through its community renewable projects program, has supported more than 150 green energy projects across Canada. Other Bullfrog Power community projects include solar panels on Hiawatha First Nation’s Old Railroad Stop and OrcaLab, Canada’s first solar-powered orca research facility.
