With Earth Day this Saturday, Vancouver’s Pacific Gateway Hotel is announcing a new environmental initiative— today, it becomes B.C.’s largest hotel purchaser of green energy with Bullfrog Power.


 Through the partnership, Pacific Gateway Hotel is now choosing green electricity for all its meeting spaces, and renewable natural gas for Pier 73 Restaurant. This means that Bullfrog’s generators will put green power onto the grid to match the amount of conventional electricity used by the hotel’s meeting spaces. For Pier 73 Restaurant, Bullfrog’s producers will inject an equivalent amount of green natural gas into the national pipeline, to match the amount of conventional natural gas used by the restaurant.


 This commitment is aligned with the sentiments of many B.C. residents; according to a recent survey conducted by Bullfrog, 59 per cent think the country should be doing more to address climate change, and an overwhelming 89 per cent believe businesses need to make a stronger effort in this area.
