Frequently asked questions
If you’re in a community solar eligible utility, your business may qualify. Each utility has different requirements for eligible rate classes and usage, so we’ll need to evaluate each opportunity individually. If you’re interested in learning more about our community solar, please fill out this form.
How you pay your power bills on a community solar program depends on rules laid out by your state and your utility. Businesses in some utility areas can join a local solar farm without paying any bills through Arcadia. This is known as Utility Consolidated Billing, or “UCB”. This option is available to commercial accounts in New York and Virginia.
Businesses in other areas can maintain their current line of payment with their utility, but they will need to pay an additional bill with Arcadia. This is known as “Dual Billing”, and is available in Delaware, Massachusetts, Maine, Illinois, New Jersey, and New York.
Yet a third option exists where businesses can opt to pay only one bill through Arcadia, who will then send remittance to the utility. This option is known as Arcadia Consolidated Billing, or “ACB”. This option is available in Delaware, New Mexico, Maryland, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Maine, Illinois, Colorado, New Jersey, and New York.
If you have a business in one of these utility territories and would like to learn more about joining our community solar program, please fill out this form.
We welcome business of all shapes and sizes, including those with multiple utility bills (yup, even across multiple utilities!). If you will be using the same form of payment for all your utility bills, we can nestle them under one Arcadia account for you. If you’d like the flexibility to have different properties pay with different payment methods, we’d recommend having one Arcadia account per payment method.
