Who are we?

We are a team of experts investing and serving the Distributed Energy Resources (DER) market with three offerings to suit our customers’ needs:

DER Assets: Where a customer chooses to partner with us through a “Corporate Power Purchase Agreement” (CPPA), we own and operate the system through a long-term electrical or thermal energy contract. GRE has a portfolio of sustainable, distributed generation assets.

Power System Services: We have a fully staffed, self-performing multi-trade services group that can develop, build, and operate your DER. Our trades team can also support your construction and service initiatives in the Commercial, Industrial, Municipal, and Institutional sectors. Our Power System Services includes fully licenced trades in not only Electrical but also Mechanical, Millwright, Rigging, HVAC and Fabricating.

Commercial Innovation: Building on years of proven experience delivering commercially viable projects, we collaborate with a team of industry partners. We collectively look for opportunities to deploy new projects and technology with innovative commercial contracts and 3rd party sources of funding with the intention of growth, but more importantly to expand the industry as whole.

GRAND RIVER ENERGY

is funded with private equity investment from multiple shareholders focused on distributed energy resource assets and services.
