Renewable energy is becoming cheaper and more plentiful, but it can still be time-consuming and expensive to make the switch for your home.
Thankfully, now there is an easy way you can help the environment without installing solar panels. Enter Arcadia Power, a company that promises to match 50% of your energy bill with clean energy—at no extra cost. Or you can go 100% clean for just a few extra dollars.
Arcadia Power accomplishes this through the power of RECs. Each time a renewable energy generator produces one megawatt-hour of electricity, one REC is created. Each one is “a specific amount of electricity produced and delivered to the power grid by a renewable resource such as wind or solar,” states the EPA
So buying RECs means more green energy is pumped into the grid, a form of direct investment in renewable energy farms.
That’s where Arcadia Power comes in. It acts as a middleman, paying your electricity to the local utility and keeping track of your power consumption. When you pay your bills to Arcadia Power, a small premium goes to RECs, which are given to wind farms to produce more electricity.
