Mission & Core Values
Honors & Awards
Over 700 million people worldwide live in remote communities with no access to traditional energy infrastructure, relying on diesel fuel to generate electricity. Diesel must be shipped, trucked, or flown in to these communities, resulting in electricity costs up to 15 times the cost of power from a traditional utility grid. This method of electricity generation is expensive and environmentally risky due to the potential for fuel spills during transit, delivery and storage, as well as exposure to harmful emissions.
Since 2013, ORPC has partnered with the Village of Igiugig, Alaska to lower energy costs by utilizing renewable energy generated by the powerful Kvichak River. The Kvichak River is home to the world’s largest sockeye salmon population, on which many villagers rely for their subsistence and livelihood.
In 2014, ORPC successfully built, deployed, and operated its RivGen
Power System, delivering electricity to Igiugig’s diesel microgrid. In 2015, ORPC re-installed and operated the RivGen
system in Igiugig to demonstrate its latest technology advancements and, in the process, reduced the community's diesel fuel use by one-third when the system was operating.
