    Dandelion Energy and Palmetto Partner to Expand Access to Renewable Energy

    Dandelion Energy, a residential geothermal company, is teaming up with Palmetto, a clean energy technology company, to increase access to renewable energy solutions. Through harnessing the complementary powers of solar and geothermal energy, the partnership aims to provide homeowners with sustainable and independent energy options.

    In Massachusetts, where Dandelion has recently expanded its services, the collaboration will begin with a launch program in partnership with Palmetto. Dandelion Energy’s geothermal system replaces a home’s existing heating and cooling equipment with a powerful heat pump and underground pipes that transfer heat between the earth and the home. By installing a rooftop solar photovoltaic system, homeowners can generate the electricity needed for true energy independence.

    Heating and cooling account for almost half of a typical home’s energy consumption. With the use of renewable energy sources such as solar and geothermal, homes and businesses can operate without relying on non-renewable resources like gas, coal, propane, or oil. This not only offers a cleaner and safer solution, but also helps to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions.

    In Massachusetts, over 25% of residents depend on heating oil, while 52% use utility gas for heating. These resources have become increasingly expensive for homeowners and hinder the state’s climate goals. On-site fossil fuel combustion contributes to 27% of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions, emphasizing the need for energy-efficient solutions within homes.

    Palmetto’s clean energy operating platform streamlines the process of bringing residential solar energy to rooftops. Their suite of tools manages sales, design, engineering, permitting, and fulfillment, helping solar businesses reduce soft costs. By utilizing automated workflows, predictive algorithms, and local intelligence data, Palmetto aims to make solar projects more efficient and cost-effective.

    When geothermal and solar systems are combined, homeowners can reduce their energy consumption while increasing renewable energy generation. This not only makes households more energy-independent, but also lowers monthly energy bills, reduces environmental impact, and improves long-term home value.

    The partnership between Dandelion Energy and Palmetto has the potential to revolutionize how homeowners perceive and utilize renewable energy. By providing sustainable energy solutions, the collaboration aims to build a sustainable future for generations to come.
