Support local solar farms in Albany

Who is eligible for Arcadia?

Arcadia is currently available to anyone that pays a power bill - whether you rent or own. Based on your location we will connect you to a nearby community solar farm.

How does Community Solar work?

Community Solar gives you the opportunity to get savings on your power bill without installing solar panels on your property. The solar farms produce electricity that is sold to your local power grid, and you receive credits from the electricity sold by signing-up for the project. This results in a lower utility bill for you, and more local solar for your community.

How can you save with Community Solar?

Solar credits are applied to your utility bill every month based on the production of your Community Solar share. We calculate your share based on your average monthly energy usage.

Does it cost anything?

Nope! Signing up for Community Solar with Arcadia is free and you can start or stop your membership at any time.

What happens to my utility bill?

You will pay your utility bill through Arcadia. You still have access to your utility account, and we ensure the solar portion of your bill always gives you savings.

Do I need equipment?

No, you do not need to install anything at your home to enroll in this program.
