Thanks to Dandelion Energy geothermal heating for sponsoring Electrek. See if your home qualifies.

With over 7M households in the Northeast alone currently heating with fuel oil and propane, New York-based Dandelion Energy will expand its presence as it looks to complete more installs of its affordable geothermal heating system this year. That will come following a new $16 million investment round in the geothermal-based home heating and cooling solution from Google Ventures and Comcast Ventures.

While geothermal solutions have been around for quite awhile, Dandelion’s system makes it cost effective for residential customers after taking advantage of tax credits. For customers looking to install a new heating and air conditioning system, financing a Dandelion Geothermal instead will on average offer savings of around $2250/year. The company hopes the system can eventually help combat the roughly 11% of carbon emissions that are estimated to be caused by home heating and cooling solutions.

But you might also want to invest in even more than just your own electricity savings.

Colorado-based Wunder Capital enables you to do so by directly investing in other solar projects across the U.S. while providing great returns for investors. The company’s portfolio of solar projects in the U.S. has grown rapidly in recent months and it shared some updated data below. Here’s how it works:

When discussing an investment in solar energy most people immediately think of a solar installation for their home, which can often be a good investment by reducing your electricity bill, but what about when that’s not a feasible or smart investment?

Small and mid sized businesses need capital and assistance with solar, and one service is enabling anyone to get involved as easily as supporting a crowdfunding campaign – but with much better, rock solid returns all while simultaneously helping the U.S. catch up in solar and fight climate change.
