Bluetti, makers of battery backup systems both large and small, have announced its modular take on the home battery backup. With the Tesla Powerwall only available to solar roof customers (and backorders up the wazoo), many are dipping their toes into vehicle or home backup systems from the likes of Bluetti.

Bluetti has announced its flagship AC300 modular backup system, the B300 modular battery, the Fusion Box Pro to connect staggering power, and also the upgraded AC200 MAX all-in-one unit.

Electric bicycles have exploded in popularity in the US and around the world. 

They provide the same personal mobility convenience as a bicycle, yet use an electric motor to help riders travel faster, farther, up steep hills and without the same level of exhaustion. 

While some low-cost electric bikes have sacrificed quality and longevity for affordability, FUELL has focused instead on creating a premium offering designed for longevity. The higher build quality and more rugged components have a significant impact on the riding experience as well.

Today Electrek turns its spotlight to the up-and-coming EV company, Electric Last Mile (ELMS), which is targeting one of the hottest EV markets: commercial fleets. While most new EV companies are years away from production, ELMS, headquartered in the suburbs of Detroit and solely focused on the commercial space, plans to launch the first Class 1 EV later this year at a price point of $25,000 after federal tax credits. With an experienced management team, expected deliveries this year, and more than 45,000 non-binding pre-orders, ELMS is certainly an EV company to watch.

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

Our sponsor Dandelion Energy has announced an exclusive partnership with Con Edison to offer an additional $5000 credit on its geothermal heating system starting with customers in Westchester, New York. The move comes just as Con Ed plans to stop new installations of natural gas pipelines in the area.

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.

Thanks to our sponsor Wunder Capital for sponsoring The Electrek Podcast this month. 

The best way to invest in solar is generally having your own rooftop solar array. Of course that may not work for everyone for a number of reasons. Perhaps you are renting rather than a homeowner, have an inadequate roof location/configuration, or your grid electricity is cheap enough that it doesn’t make sense financially. 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.
