Membership with Arcadia is free with most utilities. After you start your membership and join our Free plan by connecting your online utility profile to your Arcadia account, you can then choose to participate in other clean energy or saving programs. To see what programs you may qualify for, please reference this article.
Wind Energy: You can participate in our Free plan for 50% wind energy or Premium plan for 100%. Once you connect your online electric utility profile to your Arcadia account we automatically start matching half of your electricity at no additional cost. You can upgrade at any time to Premium wind which is an additional cost of 1.5c per kWh to make sure 100% of your electricity is matched with renewable energy. For utilities we don’t integrate with, we offer our Basic plan where you can select your wind energy contribution for 1.5c per kWh.
Bill Pay: Pay your utility bills automatically with Arcadia's Bill Pay program. You can even use a credit card with no added fees. Bill Pay is a requirement for several Arcadia programs including the Premium plan and Community Solar.
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, so as soon as we find you a lower rate we’ll send an email to notify you. If you change your mind, there are no fees to cancel.
Community Solar: Our nationwide program has a one-time upfront cost of $100 per panel. After that, we'll apply a monthly solar credit to your Arcadia statement, 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 Maryland, Illinois, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, or New York, you may be eligible for our local Community Solar program. With this program, we will 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 savings without installing your own panels or equipment. The savings percentage will vary project-by-project.
