OCAD U is keeping the lights on. For 24 hours on March 25, 2017, OCAD U is Bullfrog Powered with 100% green electricity in celebration of Earth Hour.

This means that Bullfrog Power's generators put 100% green power onto the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity the campus uses, displacing energy from polluting sources. Across Canada, Bullfrog's green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.

What is OCAD U's impact? For the 41.920 MWh of green electricity purchased for the entire campus for March 25, the emission reductions are 6.707 CO2e. 

41.920 MWh is more than 1,500 homes' electricity consumption for a day! 

To determine more environmental equivalencies related to emissions reduction, you can go to the EPA's carbon equivalency calculator. Plug 6.707 tonnes into the "CO2 - Carbon Dioxide or CO2 Equivalent" field to find some interesting comparisons!
