MONTREAL, Nov. 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Simply Voting Inc., provider of online voting solutions, announced that it has chosen clean, pollution-free energy for its facilities. Simply Voting joins the growing number of Canadian organizations supporting the development of new renewable power generation across Canada with Bullfrog Power, Canada's leading green energy company.
"Simply Voting is proud to be supporting clean energy with Bullfrog Power," said Brian Lack, President of Simply Voting. "By bullfrogpowering the office, Simply Voting is greening its operations and doing our part to help the transition to a renewably powered future."
Through the agreement, Bullfrog Power's generators put clean, green energy onto the energy system to match the amount used by Simply Voting's facilities. Across Canada, Bullfrog's green electricity comes from a blend of wind and low-impact hydro power sourced from new Canadian renewable energy facilities.
"We are excited to welcome Simply Voting to the bullfrogpowered community," said Anthony Santilli, Vice President, Channels and Sales Operations, Bullfrog Power. "By choosing clean, pollution-free energy, Simply Voting is reducing its environmental impact and supporting the growth of green energy projects across Canada."
In addition to choosing green energy with Bullfrog Power, Simply Voting minimizes the greenhouse gas emissions of its voting system by running it on efficient cloud computing infrastructure in a data centre powered by hydroelectricity.
"Switching from paper ballots to internet voting is important, but an electronic election still has a carbon footprint because electricity is required to power the servers, the computers used by voters, and the global networks that connect them. I can say with confidence that an online vote with Simply Voting is going to generate less carbon dioxide than with any of our competitors," said Mr. Lack.
