I recently discovered Arcadia Power, an affordable way to get Clean Energy at home. There is no equipment or commitment.  
 
I live in the suburbs and not allowed to have solar panels so having an option for clean energy that is affordable has me really excited! I signed up right away and Arcadia Power has partnered with rays of bliss to offer $20 off your next energy bill when you  sign up! Just use the code: “raysofbliss” 
 
It was very simple to sign up too.  My electric company was not on their list so I emailed Arcadia Power.  Within the hour they had added my eclectric company and they said they are working on adding the remainder of medium to smaller utility companies! Now I will receive one consolidated monthly statement combining my local utility charges and my clean energy from Arcadia Power, but I still receive the same reliability from my current electric company.  Arcadia Power will  match my usage of energy and produce clean energy at a pollution-free renewable facilities.
 
I love that Arcadia Power offers clean energy to those of us that it’s not an option, like me who lives in the suburbs, even if you do not own your home or live in an apartment. If you pay an electric bill you can sign up for Arcadia Power and support renewable energy facilities across the country!

Arcadia Power’s Mission:

Providing homeowners and small businesses a clean energy choice – in all 50 states – from an energy company they can love.

HOW IT WORKS:

  • Arcadia Power works with your local utility to purchase clean energy for your home. You still receive just one power bill every month, and the same reliability that you’re used to.
  • In just one year, the average American home’s electricity use generates over 16,000 pounds of carbon pollution per year. With Arcadia Power, you can reduce your home’s carbon footprint to 0, and go green in under 5 minutes.
  • We’re a first-of-its-kind company giving homeowners access to the same energy markets where Apple, Whole Foods, and Google buy their clean energy.
  • Every month, support pollution-free wind power projects and school solar projects.
  • Arcadia Power clean energy for your home costs less than 25 cents per day.
  • Easy sign up, no commitments, and no need to install anything.
  • Get access to exclusive community discounts from mission-driven companies such as The Honest Company, Nature Box, Greenhome.com, and more.
  • View your environmental impact, energy usage, rewards, and projects you are supporting all from your customer dashboard on your desktop or through our mobile app.
  • You don’t need to own your home: Arcadia Power works with rentals, apartments, condos & small businesses too, all that is needed is that you pay an electricity bill.
  • For the average household just one month of clean energy has the same impact as: biking to work for a year and a half, not barbecuing for over 200 years, or not showering for 6 months.

    I also am a customer and love how they are always willing to help when something needs attention. They are even trying to help a friend get clean energy and he lives in Canada!

    Their web site is so informative and easy to use. Helps me stay accountable to my energy use!

  2. Laurie Allen says:

    It is so hard to know what to do when it comes to provider choices… thank you for the information.

  3. I love this post!

    Thank you for sharing this information. I would love to make my carbon imprint less.

  5. I love that Arcadia Power will match your usage of energy and produce clean energy at a pollution-free renewable facilities. I wish it was available where I live. This is so cool.

  6. It amazes me that solar power is not more readily available and mandated. This seems like a great first step. Thanks for the information.

  7. thank you for sharing. i live on a military base, and will pass this info on to Public Works. if we an connect to arcadia power it would save many $$$$’s. thanks again!

  8. Thanks for the info; I had no idea this was an option for us!

  9. Thanks for sharing this information with us. It always helps out to know some things that might not come through regular mail.. I know for myself my this months bill was $176 , I don’t understand it, its just me, I don’t use that much electricity.. Anyway, thanks for the information and will check it out..

    I had never heard of this before – I am glad that I have read this.

  11. Jennifer Herman says:

    I think that this is great that they support pollution-free wind power projects and school solar projects.

  12. This looks amazing! I am looking into it!

  13. This is awesome! I will have to look into something like this in my area.

  14. Melanie Hawk says:

    I am really excited to learn about this and to continue exploring Arcadia. Thank you for everything you are doing.

  15. I am going to have to check this out. I live in the pacific northwest in Oregon and I am not sure if this will work for me. Love it!!

  16. I loe the wind power… there are so many more places that can ustlize passice energy such as wind or solar that dont. Fossiil fuels need to be reduced. Great article.

  17. Courtney Jewer says:

    I wonder if thy are covering Vermont? Vermont?

  18. This is great. Wish Duke Energy had cleaner energy.

  19. Thanks for your review of Arcadia. So, as I understand it, I get a combined bill that shows my actual usage from my current utility company (Liberty Energy in South Lake Tahoe, CA) and an added-on fee for the extra charge of using alternative sources, which would be about 25 cents a day or about $7.50 a month added to my actual electric bill from my Liberty. This $750 a month gives me peace of mind that I am using alternative sources (wind, solar, etc.) which encourages more businesses to get into alternative sources of electricity generation, because of the increased demand from customers like me. Am I right so far?

    My second questing is this: Does my participation in Arcadia Power put any pressure on my local utility to actually look for alternative energy sources themselves? In other words, does this hurt Liberty in anyway, like taking business or revenue away from them? If more and more of their customers started using Arcadia Power, would it do anything to encourage Liberty Energy to change their energy sources and have them buying power from more alternative energy sources directly?

    Thanks,

    Jeff

      Yes Jeff, that’s my question too. How does adding $$ to my electric bill translate into more investment in wind power?

  20. Jeff,

    I had the same question about the additional cost. From the “Acadia Power” website:
    <> Well, I think the operative words here are “for the average home” and that’s why I emphasized that in caps; and it all depends on what is meant by “average”. I guess our house and our electrical-power usage is considered above-average. We have a 2,300 sq.ft. home in a fairly low-cost-of-living (compared to much of the rest of the nation) small town in South Carolina. Our house is old, built in 1963, so windows are only single-pane, and insulation is not great, but then that’s true in a lot of newer homes, too (standards just are not where they should be for insulation, IMHO – an aside is that I think everything should be insulated with Roxul stone-wool insulation, and definitely never with fiberglass insulation, but I digress). Our house has an all-electric central air-conditioning system (central heat in winter), all-electric appliances (double ovens, four-burner cooktop, dishwasher, washer, dryer, water heater, attic fan, etc.), an above-ground swimming pool running a pump during the day, and we also have a 35′ motor-home RV (running a/c) which is plugged into a 30-amp plug on the side of the house, as well. With climate change, temperatures have been colder than usual in Winter, cooler than usual in the Spring and Fall, and hotter than usual in Summer. Our most recent cooler-than-usual Spring electric bill for one month, just received, was what we consider a very low $137 for 1,203 kilowatt hours used. If “Arcadia Power” charges an additional $0.015 per kilowatt hour, then that monthly bill would have been $155 (only $18 more for that month, or only about $0.60 more per day). Of course, in very hot months, and in very cold months, when kilowatt-hour usage is higher, those numbers also will be higher. However, I definitely do still think it’s worth it and am signing up tonight. 🙂

  21. Hmm, the quote I referenced above, a moment ago, didn’t appear. Trying again. Here it is:

    From the “Acadia Power” website: “We offer a flat-price premium, with no contract, at $0.015/kwh for 100% renewable energy. That’s the equivalent of less than twenty-five cents ($0.25) extra per day FOR THE AVERAGE HOME [emphasis added].”

  23. I switched to Arcadia three months ago and I am VERY happy that I did so. My bills are only a couple of dollars more per month. I live in a very small house in Atlanta, GA. I can’t stand the heat so I use lots of air conditioning. Now I’m not causing more pollution. I’m actually supporting alternative energy sources. A few extra dollars each month is well worth it.

  24. I just checked into this alternative form of energy, as it was sent to my email, and was excited about it too…until I did the live chat and asked what protection there is for wildlife..specifically birds, who fly into the fans. I was told that it was better to kill a few birds, than pollute the air with coal. When I asked about adding possible safety features so they wouldn’t be harmed, I was told it wasn’t practical or “cost effective”. When I replied ” it is for the birds!” they made me feel guilty for not using “clean” energy, even though, here in Florida, I was told that solar programs had been discontinued with no more rebate incentives available!
    Sorry to rain on your parade, folks, but the blood of innocent wildlife is NOT what I would call CLEAN energy, so I will continue to seek a better source of conscionable renewable energy. Wildlife is having a tough time surviving encroachment, being hunted,poached, etc. and we don’t need to add to their impending extinction!

  25. I hesitate at the phrase “a few dollars more a month.” What’s a few to one might be too much to someone on a strict budget (like us). Before I’d switch, they’d need to take a look at my current bill and recreate it using their calculations, so that I’ll know EXACTLY how much more a month we’d be paying. In fact, that would be a great app to add to their website…think I’ll suggest it to them!

    Arcadia Power – is a scam. They are requiring I provide them with my credit card information before creating an account. Buyer beware!

    Arcadia Power doesn’t supply electricity. They only buy 100% clean Renewable Energy Certificates to match your usage.

    This is another green scam. Hope they go bust.
    They “support free market”, but then they buy electricity from the renewable thieves (who in turn are subsidized by the government).

    It must be a “big data”- and “fintech”-driven scam – they probably figured out how to market this scam work out better than the low tech thieves.
