Arcadia, a leading community solar provider in the nation, has announced a partnership with Pivot Energy that will expand its reach into Colorado. Arcadia community solar programs have helped households and businesses enjoy the benefits of solar without having to construct costly solar panels.
The partnership with Pivot Energy expands Arcadia’s coverage to include customers of Xcel Energy. Through the partnership, Arcadia will take on a portion of Pivot’s residential customers. In turn, Pivot will deal with more unique commercial, industrial, and residential subscriptions. Pivot will also be responsible for the development and administration of the projects.
Such a move is important to the spread of renewable energy as many households in the United States are unable to install rooftop solar panels. Partnerships like the one between Arcadia and Pivot Energy create community solar programs that allow these residences to benefit from and take part in clean energy initiatives.
According to Arcadia Power CEO, Kiran Bhatraju, the savings gained by joining the Arcadia community solar program will be easy to obtain. Bhatraju touted the simplified process to access the community solar perks throughout Colorado. Echoing Bhatraju’s sentiments is Tom Hunt, Pivot Energy CEO. Hunt states the importance of accessible community solar as a response to the growing popularity of clean, renewable energy.
Arcadia is a national source of renewable energy, with investments in wind and solar power. The company’s vision is for the nation to run 100% on clean energy and it aims to reach this goal by offering simple solar solutions. The community solar company’s website touts that it has avoided the release of 1.3 million tons of CO2. It has also provided its customers more than $4 million in savings.
Pivot Energy is a community solar developer that has helped avoid the release of over 678,000 metric tons of carbon emissions. Currently, Pivot services Colorado, Illinois, and Michigan, with 29 solar gardens available in Colorado. The company also provides these states and New York with SunCentral, a proprietary subscription management platform.
