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.

Activists and organizers across the country are working to transition their communities away from fossil fuels. We created our community-based green energy projects grant to provide critical funding for these local efforts.

All bullfrogpowered customers help fund these small-scale, community-led projects, including solar panels on schools and in Indigenous communities, education and training programs, and a cleantech accelerator.
