Energy Tech Tips Community

Fast Company launched its World Changing Ideas Awards this year, and we’re proud to announce that Arcadia has been selected as an Energy finalist.

Arcadia’s Nationwide Community Solar Program

Before we launched our program, community solar had been limited to just a handful of states. With our sophisticated utility billing software, we’re able to work across different states and utilities and offer community solar savings no matter where someone lives. Our hope is that by expanding solar access and flexibility, we can help do our part to accelerate a clean energy future.

In the words of our Founder and CEO, Kiran Bhatraju, “We’re making solar savings inclusive rather than exclusive. Our product cuts through many of the barriers that have held solar power back for so many years. It’s modern, portable, reduces long-term energy costs, and is available to anyone that pays a power bill.”
