How does this work? (Free and Premium)

What we do:

We give anyone the opportunity to choose clean wind energy for their home, apartment, or business. We do this right through your utility bill, with no installation, equipment, or contracts.

The process begins by linking your online electric utility account to our clean energy platform.

Once we’re linked up, we monitor your kWh usage to ensure 50-100% of your monthly electricity is sourced from wind farms by purchasing Green-e certified Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs). You can learn more about RECs with this short video.

The cost:

Our Free Plan is free!

That means we will cover the cost of ensuring that 50% of your electricity usage is sourced from wind farms and you won’t pay anything on top of your current utility charges. The amount of your utility bill will stay the same but half of your electricity will be sourced from renewable wind energy.

If you prefer to use 100% wind energy, our Premium Plan in most states is just $0.015/kWh (with a $5 monthly minimum) on top of your local utility charges. (The rate in Virginia is 1.2c/ kWh and 1c/kWh in Washington and Oregon).

For example, if you use 500 kWh with a bill of $70 per month, it would just be an extra $7.50 to use 100% wind energy; or $77.50 in total.

Billing:

You will receive one bill from Arcadia Power that includes your standard local utility charges. If you are enrolled in our Premium Plan, your monthly Arcadia Power bill will include both your standard local utility charges and your Arcadia Power wind energy charge. With either plan you will be enrolled in our automatic payment system so you won't have to worry about making manual payments each month.

You're not changing your utility or supplier so you can keep any program you have with your utility (like budget billing, senior discounts, time of use, etc.)
