BENNINGTON, Vt. — Dandelion Energy is expanding sales and service to Vermont. The expansion is supported by new incentives offered by Green Mountain Power (GMP) that provide a rebate worth thousands of dollars when people purchase and install a qualified geothermal whole-home heating and cooling system from Dandelion Energy. Dandelion’s initial entry will be serving customers in southern Vermont's Bennington County, with plans to expand in the future, providing consultations, planning, installation, and service for their heating and cooling systems.
"We could not be more excited to partner with Green Mountain Power to bring geothermal energy to Vermont," said Michael Sachse, Dandelion CEO. "Geothermal heating and cooling is clean, efficient, and comfortable. It helps homes electrify and move away from fuel oil. It can cost more upfront, but Green Mountain Power has helped remove that barrier with this new rebate for consumers. Vermont here we come!"
GMP is offering an incentive of $1,800 per ton based on the system's heating output, and Efficiency Vermont is offering an additional $300, for a combined $2,100 per ton. A typical whole-home system is about four tons. Dandelion will apply the discounts directly to the customer's purchase price to make it simple to switch from fossil fuel to clean energy.
