Community solar provides an easy, cost-free way to tap into clean energy. It’s simple: a community solar farm produces clean energy and sends it back to your local power grid in Rhode Island. You receive savings credits for every kWh of energy your share generates.
It takes just 2 minutes to connect your National Grid account to our platform and we will enroll you in a shared Rhode Island community solar project, for free.
The community solar farm produces solar energy and sends it back to your local grid. You receive savings credits for every kWh of energy produced by your share.
Each month you save based on the solar energy generated by your share of the community solar farm. It’s that simple - just sign up and save.
We really appreciate the online portal where we can see everything that we’re saving by choosing to use Arcadia.

The Hopkins Hill project is located in a rural area within the Town of West Greenwich. The 6.68 MW project is one of two new projects in RI that will eliminate more than 23,000 tons of carbon annually, and incorporates a number of environmental benefits including sponsorship of two University of Rhode Island Watershed Watch water quality monitoring sites.
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.
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.
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.
