Overview

ORPC was first in the Americas to deliver power to a utility grid from both a tidal energy and river hydrokinetic project.

ORPC’s Alaska river project in partnership with the remote community of Igiugig features the longest operating marine energy device in all of the Americas. Our Eastport, Maine, test site is one of the premiere locations for tidal energy production in North America. We are innovators who adapt our power systems for solutions in off-grid and on-grid markets.

ORPC’S ECONOMIC IMPACT IS NATIONAL IN SCOPE

ORPC’s installations, suppliers, and research partners span the U.S. including Alaska, resulting in manufacturing, engineering, and science-based jobs, and spending on goods and services. ORPC’s products and services, and the national network with which we partner, are vital components of our nation’s strategy for reliable, resilient and secure electrical infrastructure.
