If you choose to enroll in our 100% or Evergreen Memberships there is an additional cost of 1.5c per kWh with a $5 minimum charge. Our average member on the 100% Membership spends $10 more per month.
Smart Rate: If you’re a member in Illinois, Ohio, New Hampshire, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Delaware, New Jersey, Maine and New York we are continuously monitoring the electric market in your area to find you a lower rate per kWh. Rates vary from market-to-market, as soon as we find you a lower rate we’ll send an email to notify you as soon as we find one. If you change your mind there are no fees to cancel.
Community Solar: On our current nationwide program there is a one time upfront cost of $100 per panel, after that, we'll apply a monthly solar credit to your Arcadia bill, according to the energy production of your panel(s) for a specified term. The savings anticipated are currently $1 per month per panel.
If you live in MD, DC or NY you might be eligible for our new local community solar program where we automatically connect you to a local community solar farm which will support the development of renewable energy in your area and allow you to see the benefits of solar savings without installing your own panels or equipment. The savings percentage will vary project-by-project, email us at email@example.com for more information.
Home Efficiency: Get the latest home efficiency products at no upfront charge, and pay for them over time. For example, smart thermostats and LED bulbs are great ways to reduce your energy usage.
