The VREC Solar Difference

100% Employee Owned

Our employee-owners have a personal stake in your satisfaction and provide superior quality work.


VREC has been installing grid-tie photovoltaic
systems in BC longer than any other contractor.

No Pressure, No Commission

Be informed, not sold when you talk to our home solar advisors.

VREC sells, installs and provides consulting services for renewable energy systems.  We currently focus on designing and installing solar electricity (photovoltaics).  In the past we have also worked with solar hot water, solar pool heating, and wind energy.   We are the most experienced photovoltaic installer in the Lower Mainland, having completed the first grid-tie photovoltaic installation in the cities of Vancouver, North Vancouver, Mission and Langley. VREC is an electrical contractor that can provide complete turn-key solutions for your renewable energy installations on residential, commercial and institutional sites.

We have built our reputation based on providing practical solutions and accurate expectations of what renewable energy systems can provide.

The systems we have installed have generated over 1,200,000 kWh of clean power and prevented over 38,000 kg of greenhouses gases.  We have also facilitated funding for a reduction of an additional 340,000 kg of greenhouse gas emissions.

We also initiated BC’s first cooperatively owned community solar project.

We are members of the BC Sustainable Energy Association, the Canadian Solar Industries Association, the Canadian Workers Coop Federation, and the Canada Green Building Council.
