BiblioCommons now powered by clean, renewable energy

Press Release: BiblioCommons [April 5, 2017]

April 5, 2017 -- Toronto, ON. As of January 2017, BiblioCommons has partnered with Bullfrog Power to enable a green online presence for public libraries, and to support the supply of green energy. By choosing to power our BiblioCore and BiblioWeb production servers with 100% green electricity, BiblioCommons is taking a step to reduce its carbon-emission footprint, and those of its partner libraries.

"BiblioCommons is proud to be supporting clean, emissions-free electricity with Bullfrog Power," said Patrick Kennedy, President and co-founder of BiblioCommons. "By powering our servers with green energy we're helping to do our part for our community and the library sector in the transition to a renewably-powered future. We're reducing our environmental impact and supporting the development of renewable energy projects at the same time."

Bullfrog Power's green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydropower sourced from renewable energy facilities. Their generators will match the amount of conventional electricity used by BiblioCommons' production servers effectively powering all current library customers with 100% clean, green and renewable energy at no extra charge.

"We are excited to welcome BiblioCommons to the Bullfrog-powered community," said Anthony Santilli, Vice President, Sales and Marketing, Bullfrog Power. "By choosing clean, pollution-free electricity, BiblioCommons is reducing its environmental impact and supporting the development of green energy projects."
