What is Dandelion Geothermal?

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.

Connecticut Can Save Big With Federal and Utility Geothermal Incentives
Federal Incentives
In 2021 and 2022, the federal tax incentives known as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) will cover 26% of a Dandelion geothermal system. However, the percentage covered by the ITC will decrease to 22% in 2023, and 0% in 2024.

How do the incentives work?

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.

That means a homeowner who uses Con Edison will qualify for a different incentive amount than a homeowner who uses National Grid.

The incentive amounts are based on the installed heat pump’s total heating capacity BTUH.

Utility incentives range between $0.15 per BTUH and $0.285 per BTUH, depending on the utility.

Utility incentives range between $0.15 per BTUH and $0.285 per BTUH, depending on the utility.
Many, but not all, heat pumps installed by Dandelion include a desuperheater ─ a component that uses existing heat in the system to warm water.

This incentive is either $100 or $150 per heat pump, no matter its BTUH, depending on the utility.
Let’s dive into each utility’s incentives available to you by your utility after you install a new geothermal heat pump system in your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much can I expect to save?
A typical 2,500 square foot home in Connecticut with a heating oil furnace and central air conditioning will see a 47% reduction in total energy costs when switching to a geothermal heating and cooling system.
Connecticut gets cold in the winter! Can a geothermal heat pump really keep my home warm?
Absolutely. Geothermal heat pumps rely on the constant 55 degrees temperature found inside the ground year round. This means they are unaffected by outside air temperature and are extremely effective on the coldest winter days.
What is the environmental benefit of switching to geothermal?
According to the Energy Information Administration, a geothermal is the most sustainable, environmentally friendly way to heat & cool your home. It can reduce a home’s CO2 emissions by up to 80%. Over the 25+ year lifespan of the system, that’s equivalent to removing 39 cars from the road for an entire year.
