Join Geothermal Expert Jay Egg at Renewable Energy Event in New Paltz Sept. 12
In 2015, New York made headlines by promising to reduce the state’s greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent and improving the energy efficiency of all buildings by 23 percent by the year 2030.
While some of those improvements will come at a state level (New York has committed, for example, to purchase half of its electricity from renewable sources by 2030), much of the work to reduce New York’s carbon footprint will come on an individual level, with families choosing things like solar energy, electric vehicles and geothermal heating and cooling.
On Sept. 12, noted geothermal energy expert Jay Egg will be speaking at an event in New Paltz, NY about renewable heating and cooling systems (exactly what Dandelion offers). It’s the first of eight talks he’ll give across New York state over the next three months, making stops in Albany, Westchester County, New York City, Long Island, Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse.
The New Paltz event is being organized by seven groups advocating for renewable energy across the state. At the event, organizers will highlight a solar array installed at the venue, and the local owners of electric vehicles.
“By electrifying how we heat and cool our buildings, and electrifying our transportation sector, we can greatly increase our efficiency and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions,” said New Yorkers for Clean Power Outreach Director Elizabeth Broad. “We’re very interested in getting that idea out there, primarily in response to the climate crisis and the need to accelerate the change to clean energy.”
The Dandelion team will also attend the event, to talk about the company’s advancements in affordable home geothermal technology, initially developed inside Alphabet’s research division, X.
Egg has spent decades designing, installing and advocating for geothermal energy through his company, Florida-based Egg Geothermal. He’s co-authored two books on the subject.
