How it works


Connect your account

Take one minute to connect your local utility account to our platform and we will enroll you in a shared community solar farm, for free.


Support local solar

The community solar farm produces clean energy and sends it back to your local grid. You receive savings credits for every kWh your share produces.


You save on your monthly bill

Every month you will see savings based on the solar power produced by your share of the community solar farm.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for Arcadia Power?

Arcadia Power 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 Power 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 Power. 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.
