Public Informational & Sustainability Event Helps Long Islanders Become Energy Independent at Home

Mount Kisco, New York — April 13, 2023 — Dandelion Energy, the nation’s leading residential geothermal company, and EmPower Solar, one of the top solar installation companies on Long Island and the greater NYC area, are hosting a public informational and celebratory event at Dandelion’s Bayshore Warehouse (48 Drexel Drive, Bay Shore, NY 11706) on April 26, 2023, from 5:30 – 6:30 PM. 

Dandelion  & EmPower Invite Long Islanders Looking to Cut Energy Costs & Carbon Emissions 

Refreshments will be served at the informational event, which includes presentations from Dandelion Energy and EmPower Solar, and attendees can attend a celebratory event next door following the presentations. The event is an opportunity for climate and cost-conscious Long Island residents to learn about the most efficient and sustainable options for conditioning and powering their homes as well as the utility rebates and tax credits are available to them.

Long Island residents have demonstrated a strong commitment and prolific interest in renewable energy solutions. While national solar panel installations decreased by 16 percent by 2022, Long Island’s installations increased by 19 percent, totaling 8,111 new systems installed last year. Similarly, Long Island homeowners have responded enthusiastically to Dandelion opening operations on the Island in mid-2021. Nearly 6,000 Long Island homeowners have entered their information into Dandelion’s online portal. Thirty-five homeowners on Long Island have signed a contract and will soon have a new geothermal system heating and cooling their homes.

When geothermal and solar work together, homeowners can lower consumption and increase renewable generation, making many homeowners energy independent. For homeowners, the power of geothermal energy and solar power together is even more personally impactful, lowering their monthly energy bills, minimizing environmental harm, and improving long-term home value for a buying cohort increasingly concerned about energy efficiency:

  • Increasingly, the housing market is influenced by surging consumer interest in these renewable technologies. According to the National Association of Realtors, half of realtors say they helped clients buy or sell a home with green features, an 18 percent year-over-year increase. 
  • With the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 and state and local resources making geothermal heating and cooling the go-to sustainable solution for today’s homeowners, demand for affordable, sustainable home heating and cooling solutions is surging. 
  • At the same time, solar and geothermal installations on Long Island are creating local jobs, including teams working from the company’s Bayshore warehouse. Collectively, Dandelion and EmPower are bringing green jobs, local growth, and business development opportunities to Long Island. 

Local Partnerships Key to Impacting Change on Community Level

By working together, we can provide homeowners with the resources they need to become energy independent and reduce their carbon footprint, said David Schieren, CEO of EmPower Solar. “I am thrilled to be a part of this event and to support the growth of green jobs and business development opportunities ion Long Island.”
