Hey Everyone, This is Kiran, cofounder and CEO of Arcadia Power. We're on a mission to give everyone in the country access to renewable energy, and we're doing it by remaking the customer utility experience from the ground-up, and personalizing it. We've built a platform to manage utility billing and renewable energy certificate purchasing across 450+ utilities in all 50 states. Our customers link their local utility accounts, and receive just one consolidated energy bill from Arcadia Power every month. We match your local power usage with wind energy certificates, and provide you access a personal energy dashboard with information on usage analytics, efficient home products, smart thermostats, community solar programs, and more. Google, Amazon, and the entire Fortune 500 have been buying on these markets for years and for the first time ever we're making it free. No joke. If you sign up to pay your bills with us, we'll cover 50% of your usage with Wind power for no additional cost. Check us out, tell us what you think, and switch your dirty energy bill to wind power. Kiran

@kiranraju so how can you afford to offer 50% wind power at no additional cost to customer?
Kiran BhatrajuMakerHiring@kiranraju · Arcadia Power
@ejameswill Wind Power prices have plummeted in the past few years, and we want to pass those benefits onto consumers. We have long-term contracts with Wind Farms that allows us to buy low-cost certificates. We also have a 100% option that costs a few extra bucks a month. We offer all customers additional tools and renewable energy services to help you save on your bills too.

I've been a customer for nearly 2 years... I sleep better at night knowing that I can tell my 2 daughters when they grow up that I wasn't afraid to pay a small premium for energy that isn't contributing to climate change that they will suffer more than me. Great product that is easy to signup and requires essentially no more of your time than that.

Sounds awesome but still don't understand how it actually works.

@joshdance Hi Josh, All you have to do is link your local utility account to our platform. Each month, you'll get just one power bill from us that you can pay by credit card or bank account, and we'll pay your local utility. We look at your energy use and buy an equal amount of Renewable energy certificates up to a 50% or 100% match from our partner wind farms. Once you're a customer we'll also look at your energy profile and suggest ways for you to save money (LEDs, Nest thermostat, community solar, etc).

@joshdance They see how much power you're using and sell you offsets in wind energy. I was confused as well when I saw it a few weeks ago. I thought (based on the description and website) that I was changing power providers to them and it would be cheaper.

I've been a customer for probably six months at this point and love the service. Not only am I glad I can sleep well at night knowing my power comes from a clean source, but it's a great interface with fun updates about your energy usage. .

If you have a chance to go 50% renewable energy at no cost to you (or nature), it's a no brainer. If you can go 100% for a penny or so per kilowatt, and convince 10 people to do the same, the air quality would get substantially better over the next 2 decades. We've really hit an inflection point on renewables. Arcadia Power makes it easier to go renewable energy than porting your cell phone to another carrier!
