WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Arcadia Power, an online renewable energy company, announced today the first nationwide community solar platform that gives people around the country the opportunity to support solar energy and get savings on their bills - no matter where they live. This is a huge step forward for the residential solar industry which only caters to a small segment of homeowners in select states. Arcadia Power's technology platform can connect solar panel production from a remote site directly to a customer's power bill, and does not require any additional equipment or installation on a customer's home. Available in all 50 states, Arcadia's community solar product is ideal for those who live in apartments, have shaded roofs, or don't want to be locked down in a 20-year agreement. Customers can purchase enough panels to bring their electricity bills to $0. The process takes just minutes to sign up. Customers go online to arcadiapower.com/solar, and purchase a "Solar Savings Subscription" to a specific community solar farm in an optimal location maintained by Arcadia Power. Every month as their panels produce energy, it's sold to a host or into the local power market, and customers receive bill credits directly on their utility bills. Arcadia's software also allows customers to see their panels production in real-time and purchase panels across multiple projects. "We're making solar savings inclusive rather than exclusive," said Kiran Bhatraju, Founder and CEO of Arcadia Power. "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." Even though solar provides long-term savings, less than 1 percent of Americans today have rooftop solar systems due to issues around their roof, ownership, and what state they live in. Arcadia Power's community solar platform has the potential to replace rooftop solar with a much simpler program that is portable and modular.
