Farm Fresh RI loves local solar

Supporting local farms is what Farm Fresh RI is all about. And while climate change affects everyone, farmers face the front line. That’s why we’re teaming up to help Rhode Islanders join the state’s solar farms and clean the local grid.

Go solar today to help save the planet — and save on energy costs.

How it works

Check availability

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.

Featured solar project

Goat Island

The Goat Island community solar farm generates clean energy for the residents of Rhode Island. 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.
