Plastic Free July - Day 13: Buy cleaner energy

A few years ago now I learned about this amazing company, Arcadia Power. I don’t recall how it came on my radar, but I instantly signed up.

Here’s the simple version of what they do: The handle your utility bill and by doing so, find you renewable resources near you, buy carbon offsets for your energy usage on your behalf, invest into wind and solar for your power usage, AND actively look for lower rates to get you the best deal on your electrical usage.

I mean, come on, how could you not sign up for this?!

Another super cool thing they do is helpful for us renters out there - you can buy into a community solar panel. I bought into one and it’s so cool to see a little bit of savings each month and to remember that I have a solar panel out there (in DC, as it turns out). Also, I moved from LA to Boston - the process is SUPER easy to move your account with Arcadia, and I can always go back and look at my bills from my place in LA too to compare energy usage and such.

I’m going to share some screen shots with you so you can see how awesome Arcadia Power is. Use my links to start your account so I can get that referral discount! I promise I don’t share anything I’m not 100% passionate about and totally behind. I am completely obsessed with Arcadia Power and tell my friends about it whenever possible. Not that energy usage comes up often - so I’m super happy to finally have put this into writing.

I’m so happy to share more about this to anyone who wants to ask my any and all questions. I hope you join Arcadia and help bring our country into the renewable energy future!
