New Columbia Solar is a local energy provider of solar electricity. That’s residents and businesses throughout the District. So they announced a partnership to make community solar accessible for all D.C. residents.
So the first project Is the first privately funded community solar project in D.C.. However it will feature a completely free, user-friendly sign-up process. One that was never available in the District of Columbia.
With community solar, anyone can benefit from solar power savings even if they cannot install solar panels on their own property. However, signing up for a community solar project has traditionally required users pay two different monthly bills and fill out extensive paperwork. Then you need to agree to binding contracts with cancellation fees, and undergo a credit check.
So New Columbia Solar’s clean energy systems being built and operated on buildings all across the city. Thereby enabling District residents to power their lives entirely through locally based solar energy.
This combined with Arcadia Power’s billing platform. It makes signing-up for locally based solar power easier than ever. As a result, with no upfront costs whatsoever, for D.C. residents. Anyone in D.C. can connect their utility account to Arcadia Power’s online energy platform to sign-up for a community solar project.
Members will start saving about 10 percent on their monthly power bills. furthermore, you track your solar savings on the online dashboard.
The first community solar project hosted on the roof of a local community church. It’s called Celestial Church of Christ. The building’s roof, which has suffered from extensive leaks, replaced and repaired.
This will give the church a brand-new roof. Then with a 25-year warranty. All while hosting a local solar energy system. A system capable of powering the lives of District residents and parishioners.
So Arcadia encouraging more D.C. homeowners and renter’s to sign-up. For more Arcadia Power sign ups means more projects developed.
