We are powered by the largest solar array in the industry. Since 2007 we have been choosing renewable energy through Bullfrog Power, Canada’s leading green energy provider, and in 2017 we installed 508 solar panels that produce over 212Mwh of power annually.
By creating plastics solutions that are consistent and reliable, that perform as they are meant to, and adhere to the highest quality standards, we produce products that are, by their very nature, multi-use and durable.
The materials used are long-lasting, flexible and have minimal environmental impact. They are recyclable, repairable, will not rust, do not corrode easily, and designed to be employed long-term – definitely not single-use.
All these fantastic features provide a simple way to reduce your carbon footprint.
Largest Solar Array in the Industry
In October 2017, we “flipped the switch” on our solar array. The system consists of 508 large solar panels (167kw) and it will produce an estimated 212Mwh (megawatt hours) of power annually. All of the solar panels are produced in Canada.
This initiative has made us the greenest rotomolding company in the world. We are very proud to be leaders in the industry!
Bull Frog Power
Bullfrog Power, Canada’s 100% green energy provider, offers homes and businesses clean, renewable energy solutions. By choosing Bullfrog Power’s green energy, Flexahopper Plastics has significantly reduced its environmental impact since 2007.
By working with Bullfrog our company supports the development of new renewable generation in Canada and helps to create a cleaner world for today and tomorrow.
Flexahopper Plastics has always recycled its plastic waste by working with other processors. We always try to minimize our waste that is why we have implemented many “cradle to grave” programs with our products to ensure they don’t wind up in the landfill.
Flexahopper utilizes the highest quality materials in the market. We also try to use some of the engineered materials that reduce manufacturing time by 10% resulting in better energy efficiency.
Machine Manufacture Enhancements
Flexahopper Plastics invests in cutting edge technology to reduce consumption of natural resources and time. For example, Flexahopper introduced a new machine design developed in cooperation with Ferry Industries last year.
This machine has demonstrated major reductions in gas consumption and water use. Additionally, it allows us to lower our plastic waste by producing the right parts every time using closed loop controls systems.
Flexahopper taking the Green lead
