When you purchase a Cardel, you can feel good about owning a cost-effective, efficient home with all the features and benefits that have made us a trusted name for over 40 years.
Cardel Homes is introducing a unique upgrade for 50 newly-built homes in 2018: 100% green electricity! In addition to purchasing an energy-efficient property, you’ll have the comfort of knowing that, for the first year, your home will be bullfrogpowered with 100% clean, renewable electricity – all courtesy of Cardel Homes.
As a homeowner, you’ll pay the cost for conventional electricity, as provided by your utility of choice, and through our partnership, Bullfrog Power’s generators will put renewable electricity onto the grid to match the amount of power consumed in your home. In having a home that is bullfrogpowered with 100% green electricity, it will reduce your carbon emissions footprint by more than 1 tonne per year!
