TideSmart Talk with Co-Founder & CEO of Ocean Renewable Power Company Chris Sauer
February 11, 2017
Ocean Renewable Power Company (ORPC) has been based in Maine since 2008 when they went from a digital company, to having a brick-and-mortar presence. When asked why he chose Portland, the answer was simple: He wanted to be here. ORPC moved away from the original idea of using the Florida current’s hydro-kinetic energy and moved to tidal and river energy. Sauer always liked Maine during his previous visits and its proximity to the Bay of Fundy (home of the world’s most drastic tides).
