BC’s Solar Energy Leader since 2004
VREC Solar now has staff based in the Powell River area. This means that we can now offer consulting and solar installations at lower rates without additional travel costs.
VREC installed the first commercial photovoltaic grid-tie system in BC. We sell, install and provides consulting services for renewable energy systems. Our specialties include designing and installing solar electricity (photovoltaics), solar hot water, solar pool heating, and wind energy. 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 80,000 kg of greenhouses gases. We have also facilitated funding for a reduction of an additional 340,000 kg of greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition to installing and designing renewable energy systems, VREC offers monitoring and repair services, energy conservation services, solar grants for co-op housing complexes, and solar portable power pack rentals. 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.
