Investment Opportunities

Local Solar Investment

The Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative brought two solar projects online in 2020, in collaboration with the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE). We are preparing for a new investment window in the Spring & Summer of 2021.

OREC’s staff and board of directors are continuing to explore other project opportunities, including the acquisition of existing renewable energy projects, to bring them under community control.

As the leading impact investment opportunity in the region, the Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative’s 780+ members have generated significant benefits for our community since 2012. Learn more in our 2017 Community Impact Report.
