Invest in Eastern Ontario
Energy generation has long been controlled by a few powerful groups. But the landscape is changing. Widely available renewable energy technologies are shifting the way communities generate and distribute electricity. More than 700 individuals throughout Eastern Ontario have committed to bring more democracy and transparency to electricity generation by investing in local solar power projects. Diversify your portfolio with the planet and bring positive change to your community.
Invest in Real Assets
Our co-op’s solar projects range in size from 10 kW rural systems to larger arrays on industrial and school rooftops, to our largest project, a 500 kW ground mount in Alfred.
All of our 14 projects are generating clean power, and earning a solid return for our members. OREC’s portfolio amounts to 2 MW of installed capacity and is valued at almost $7 Million.
“I have seen firsthand the hard work, boundless energy, and sincere passion that the staff and volunteers invest in achieving OREC’s important mission. This is a sound investment — for your portfolio, for our community, and for the planet.”

Angela Keller-Herzog, OREC Member & Investor
I’ve always believed in alternative energy resources – especially harnessing the sun’s energy. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that I could invest my earnings in a socially responsible way and do so locally. I’ve been a member and investor since 2014 and there’s not doubt in my mind that OREC has made its mark in Ontario. I’m happy to be part of the shift towards alternative energy sources, to help reduce my carbon footprint and to see the impact on our local economy as well.

Invest with an Impact
As a growing co-operative, OREC strives to play a positive role in Eastern Ontario’s increasingly clean and locally-financed energy landscape. Our 2017 Community Impact Report outlines the social, environmental, and economic benefits made possible through investment in the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative’s community-owned renewable energy projects.
