If you are like most people who eagerly want to start using clean, renewable energy as soon and humanly possible, but you don’t have the $20,000+ it can take to outfit your home with solar panels, or even live in an area that gets enough sun to make it worth doing so, now you can with Arcadia Power.
The current general power infrastructure makes it impossible to track electrons from a particular source to your home. Energy simply goes into the grid, mixes with other electrons and your local utility delivers it over the poles and wires. Your local utility can’t even tell you where the electrons powering your computer originated.
With Arcadia Power, you have a choice to ensure you’re using clean energy. They do this by buying Green-e Energy certified renewable energy certificates (RECs) from wind farms to match your exact monthly usage. This certifies that when the energy that you consume at home is matched with RECs, you are using clean, wind energy.
The only way to use clean energy without producing it yourself is by buying renewable energy certificates (RECs) equal to your energy consumption. RECs were created to allow tracking renewable electricity – which is physically impossible – from the source (e.g. wind turbine, solar farm) to the end user (you). A REC is a claim on the social, environmental, and other non-power related attributes of electricity produced by renewable sources.

How to Start Using Renewable Energy In Your Home For Free
Arcadia Power is an innovative, downright revolutionary company that is working to change the power game from the inside out by giving anyone the ability to start using renewable energy. For free. That’s right, free!
They’ve figured out a way to make it ridiculously easy to replace your current energy footprint by matching your electricity usage with renewable energy they purchase on your behalf from sustainable wind energy farms across the USA.
Here’s how it works:
1. You sign up for free here on the Arcadia Power website, it takes 3 minutes.
2. Then you’ll link your current utility account with their system so they can track your energy usage.
3. For every kWh of energy you use, they will purchase renewable energy credits from wind farms on your behalf to match your current power usage.
4. This renewable energy is then fed back into the power grid making it available for homes and businesses across the country to use, increasing the percentage of energy that comes from green sources nationwide.
The best part is you don’t have to cancel your current utility account with your local power company making it super simple to get started. After filling out your zip code on their website, you’ll be directed through a series of steps that get you set up in their system.
They even have a user-friendly interface that allows you to monitor your renewable energy and regular power usage so you can track how much you are doing for the environment.
