Partner: Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative (OREC)

The Ottawa Renewable Energy Co-operative (OREC) develops community-based green energy projects such as solar panels on schools and housing co-opsā€”and Bullfrog is helping the co-op build community support. OREC partners with local property owners to use their land or rooftops for community-owned renewable power projectsā€”benefitting the land owners, co-op members and the environment. With a contribution from Bullfrog Power, OREC will continue to build community support for renewable energy projects in Eastern Ontario.
