The Dandelion Energy home geothermal system replaces your home’s existing air conditioning and heating equipment with a powerful heat pump and safe, underground pipes that move heat between the earth and your home.
In the winter, the ground loops move heat stored in the ground into your home. In the summer, the ground loops returns heat from your home to the ground.
New York State's Clean Heat Program is administered by the homeowner’s utility. Let’s go over some important details to explain how these incentives are allocated.
Each utility has a unique incentive.
The incentive amounts are based on the installed heat pump’s total heating capacity BTUH.
Both Eversource and United Illuminating offer geothermal heat pump incentives via the Energize Connecticut program (The following municipal utilities are not part of the Energize Connecticut program; Groton, Bozrah, Norwalk, Wallingford, and Norwich).
The Connecticut incentives are limited to $15,000 per household, or 10 tons worth of geothermal heat pumps. See the table below for an example of what an average sized home that needs a 5 ton geothermal heat pump system would qualify for in Connecticut.
