Investment Opportunities

Local Solar Investment

The Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative is currently developing two solar projects in partnership with the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est (CECCE). At this time, there is no immediate need for OREC to raise funds for these projects.

OREC’s staff and board of directors are continuing to explore other project opportunities. At the same time, CoEnergy Co-operative, OREC’s sister co-op, is actively developing projects, and aims to fund these through the same community finance mechanism, and will be launching an investment opportunity soon. Read all about CoEnergy’s investment options and projects here.

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.
