Funds available for woodstove rebate program


The Baker-Polito Administration has provided $450,000 in funding for the 2019 Commonwealth Woodstove Change-out Program, which provides rebates to homeowners who replace older, inefficient woodstoves with cleaner, EPA-certified wood and pellet stoves that use less fuel, reduce energy costs and improve air quality.Launched in 2012, the Commonwealth Woodstove Change-Out Program is administered by the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, with assistance from the Massachusetts Department of Energy Resources and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.To qualify for a rebate, a resident must have an operational, non-EPA-certified woodstove. To apply, the resident should visit a participating woodstove retailer or contact a participating stove professional such as a chimney sweep, who will handle the rebate application process on the residents' behalf. Residents across the state can find a local participating woodstove professional by viewing the list of woodstove dealers who have registered to participate. Rebate applications will be accepted until Aug. 5.
