Arcadia Power Does Business Right for Renewables
What is an entrepreneur? Defined as, “Someone who exercises initiative by organizing a venture to take benefit of an opportunity and, as the decision maker, decides what, how, and how much of a good or service will be produced.” It goes on to cite economist Joseph Alois Schumpeter (1883-1950), who said that “entrepreneurs are not necessarily motivated by profit but regard it as a standard for measuring achievement or success.”
By that definition, the people behind Arcadia Power are entrepreneurs in the highest sense. Their mission states: “We were founded with one simple mission in mind: to make our world better by changing the way we power our homes and businesses from fossil fuels to clean, renewable energy.”
How do they do that? By connecting homes and businesses with renewable energy sources. No need for solar panels or wind turbines on the roof. Arcadia Power makes renewable energy available to all electricity users everywhere. With Arcadia, renters and people who don’t have a roof available to put solar panels on can still choose clean energy. People who have a roof that is not ideally situated for solar power can do so, too.
There is no investment required; no long term power purchase agreements or leases to sign. If you move, there is no equipment left behind you still must make payments on.
Being an Arcadia Power customer couldn’t be easier. It takes just three minutes to sign up. Once you do, you are guaranteed to receive 50% of your energy needs from renewable sources through renewable energy certificate purchases. If you prefer, you can elect to have 100% of those needs derived from renewables for a very modest charge of $0.015 per kilowatt.
Arcadia Power is a certified B Corporation. B Corps are for-profit companies certified by the nonprofit B Lab to meet rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,600 Certified B Corps from 42 countries and over 120 industries working together toward one unifying goal — to redefine success in business.
If you care about the environment but don’t want to make a long term commitment for a rooftop solar installation, you can let the people at Arcadia Power make all the arrangements for you. Once you become a member, you will have access to your personal online dashboard that allows you to track your energy usage and see how much of it is supplied by renewable sources.
