Canadian Museum of Science & Technology

“We have been working towards a project like this for many years, and are thrilled to have found a partner with Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative, who share in our dedication to putting renewable energy into action as we work towards greening our museum.”

Fernand Proulx

Chief Operating Officer, Ingenium - Canada's Museum of Science and Technology

Hosted on the Canadian Museum of Science and Technology, this marks OREC’s first net metered solar project. This 215 kW project will produce a projected 230,000 kWh of clean energy, directly consumed by the Museum.

In addition to being a first for the co-op, this also marks the first net metering collaboration between a renewable energy co-operative and a crown corporation such as Ingenium, which overseas Canada’s museums related to science, technology, and agriculture.
