Are you looking for ways to live greener? You can consider going solar!

With Arcadia Power, you don't have to pay anything up front to switch to solar energy, and it reduces your household's carbon footprint every month. Arcadia has exclusive agreements with solar developers, purchasing power in the wind energy industry, and partnerships with smart home companies that allow them to connect homes to clean energy sources without any inconvenience to homeowners. However, it is only available in select areas.

Sunrun is another service that offers solar power purchase agreements. You can also lease the panels to see if using solar energy is what you prefer, and if your panels generate more power than you can use in a month, your account is credited. Sunrun is only available in a few states, as well, but New York is one of them!

Vivint Solar is a solar energy and home security company. They offer leasing and power purchase agreements for their panels, as well as products for home automation and security, although these services are only available in 12 out of 50 states.

SunPower has been in the game for thirty years! This company uses fewer panels than the competition, and their panels generate more power. They also give you the option to lease panels for a trial period. Unfortunately, they don't offer any power purchase agreements.

Being conscious of our energy usage is more important than ever. If these companies didn't particularly stand out to you, there are plenty of other providers who can help get you on the path to green living!
