“We’re thrilled to receive the Platinum honor on the Most Fundable Company list,” said Troy Helming, Founder and Chairman of EarthGrid. “A transition to renewable energy in the U.S. will require adding significant electrical grid infrastructure. This disruptive tunnel-boring technology can potentially work 100 times faster and save up to 90% in costs over current methods. We’re working to create faster, cheaper tunnels for an underground super grid delivering clean energy.”

As a winner on the Most Fundable Companies List, EarthGrid was profiled on Entrepreneur.com and featured in the December 2022 print issue of Entrepreneur magazine.
