Chicago — go solar and save
Join a local solar farm for no extra cost to help put clean energy into the Windy City’s power supply and save on your energy costs. Plus, get $100 toward your power bill when you sign up.
A shared mission
The natural world can remind us to slow down, to take a breath — to literally stop and smell the roses. That’s why we’re partnering with the Garfield Park Conservatory to sponsor the Serenity Winter Flower Show. Because the more connected we feel to the natural world, the more inspired we are to take action to preserve it.
What is community solar?
Illinois has passed legislation that allows homes and apartments to share in the savings from remote solar farms. We partner with solar developers to build farms in your local area and make it easy for you to enroll through our online platform. You’ll help clean up Chicago’s power supply, repurpose land, and boost the local economy.
The easiest way to save with solar
At Arcadia, we’re building technology to connect you with a local solar farm so you can get all the benefits of solar with none of the hassle.
Whether you rent or own your home, you can join a solar farm in your community. It’s solar for everyone, made possible by state legislation.
When the solar farm generates electricity, your community gets clean energy and you get savings on your power bill — up to 10%.
With no installations, long-term contracts, or extra costs, there’s nothing stopping you from investing in the clean energy future.
Signup takes only two minutes — we don’t even check your credit. You keep your current provider while your community gets cleaner.

Signing up for Arcadia was super easy — I was able to join a community solar project in my state in just one click. Plus, it’s really easy to use.
