TORONTO, ONTARIO - September 28, 2005
Bullfrog Power, Ontario's first 100% green electricity retailer, announced today that Upper Canada Forest Products' 100,000 square foot warehouse, Toronto office and North American data centre have become bullfrogpowered operations. Currently, the Upper Canada warehouse is the single largest building in Ontario to be bullfrogpowered.
