Clean Burning Wood Stove Grant Program Available
Last Updated on Apr 23, 2015 at 1:33pm | Energy
To help Maryland homeowners invest in clean energy, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA)
provides grants for clean burning wood stoves that displace electric or non-natural gas fossil fuel heating systems or old wood stoves. After the successes of the Wood Stove Grant pilot in the 2012-2013 heating season, MEA has indefinitely extended the program, while increasing each qualified grant by $100. To ensure you qualify, please closely review the programmatic guidelines
♦ Qualified wood stove grants are up to $500; the Qualified pellet stove grants are up to $700.
♦ The stove must be installed at a primary Maryland residence.
♦ The stove must displace electric or non-natural gas fossil fuel heating systems or old uncertified wood stoves.
♦ A property may not receive more than one grant per technology per fiscal year.
♦ MEA cannot offer grants to a property held in trust.
Eligible wood stoves must meet both of the following requirements:
♦ Wood stoves must be EPA Certified (approved stove list) and emit no more than 3 grams of particulate matter (PM)/hr.
♦ Pellet stoves must meet Washington Emission Standards (approved stove list) and emit no more than 2 grams of particulate matter.
Programmatic Updates from your Feedback:
♦ You can now self-install a stove, as long as it is inspected by the local permitting office or your insurance provider and a letter from the
inspector noting that it has been safely installed is submitted.
♦ You can now replace a non-qualifying woodstove for a qualifying woodstove and receive a grant. Just ensure that the stove meets
all of the regulations outlined on the program page
