Save on your energy bill with community solar
Solar energy is the most abundant energy resource on the planet, but it’s hard to come by. Only 10% of Americans are eligible for rooftop solar due to its high cost and strict requirements. We’ve broken down these barriers because we believe everyone should benefit from solar power and the savings that come with it.Connect to solar
We partner with solar developers to connect community members like you to projects in your area. You’ll save on your power bill every month and clean energy will flow into your local power grid.
Solar is less expensive than fossil fuels. When Community Solar projects produce energy, utilities buy it in exchange for savings credits. You receive a portion of these savings for being connected to the project, lowering your power bill up to 5%. We also receive a portion for connecting you.
Arcadia members across the country are driving demand for clean energy.
In certain states, community solar projects are able to produce electricity and deliver it to the grid to reduce reliance on other sources of energy including fossil fuels.
When community solar projects begin producing solar energy, subscribers to those projects acquire credits that can be applied to utility bills. Arcadia members who are eligible to receive credits are connected to these projects and receive a portion of these credits on their power bill, every month.
Eligibility is typically limited to customers who receive their power from a certain utility, and may require other qualifications such as certain rate classes or usage thresholds. When you connect your utility bill to Arcadia, we will automatically check whether you are eligible to subscribe to purchase credits from a community solar project we work with that will reduce your power bill.
Our relationship with solar developers means that you are provided the bill credits at a cost that is less than the amount by which they reduce your utility bill.
No. We do not charge you for this service.
Solar developers pay us for every customer we connect. They only make money if they can find customers to subscribe to their project and receive the bill credits.
We will send you an agreement to review and, if you don’t opt out, we automatically subscribe you.
No. We will always provide you notice by email before switching you and you can opt-out of the enrollment if you choose.
We will automatically enroll you and take care of the necessary paperwork on your behalf. You don’t need to do anything.
No problem! We only allow agreements that ensure that you can cancel at anytime with no termination fees. In some cases, cancellation can take several months to be processed by the utility so there may be a delay between when you notify us to cancel and when your account can be closed.
No. All of our products are independent. The only requirement is that community solar is only available to our bill pay customers.
Of course. While we only work with certain developers, you can subscribe on your own to a community solar project and reduce your utility bill. If you do that, Arcadia will not subscribe you to a community solar project.
