Xcel customers can access community solar savings
Automatically save money and support local solar projects without installing anything on your property. Plus, get $100 toward your power bill when you sign up.
Available to renters and homeowners in Colorado.
Save money and the environment
A handful of states have passed legislation that allows homes and apartments to share in the savings from remote solar projects. We partner with solar developers to build projects in your local area and make it easy for you to enroll in a project through our online platform. Reserve your spot, and your savings, today.
Take one minute to enter your zip code and provide a bit of information to see if our community solar program is available in your area.
Connect your utility
Enter your utility account login credentials and payment information to connect your utility to Arcadia and start paying your power bill through us. Your utility will continue to deliver energy to your home but will send your bill straight to us instead.
We do the work
Once you’re signed up we reserve a spot for you in a local community solar project. When the project goes live, it sends energy to your utility in exchange for savings credits. We apply a portion of the savings to your utility bill and send you a statement with one, lower, charge.
The Pivot Solar community solar farm generates clean energy for the residents of Colorado. The first project of its kind in the state, it is set to generate 145 gigawatt hours over the next 35 years — that's the annual equivalent to the CO2 emissions from using 360,000 gallons of gasoline. As the panels on this old farmland serve the community, pollinator-friendly plants growing among them will give wildlife a better home, too.
It's no extra cost
We partner with solar developers to build, and connect you to, community solar projects in your area. Your utility buys the energy the projects generate, and our technology applies savings to your monthly utility bill. It’s at no extra cost to you because we benefit when we connect you to a project.
