Now is the Time to Buy Thanks to the Maryland Energy Administration’s Clean Burning Wood Stove Grant Program

With incentives of up to $700 per installation, owning an energy efficient clean burning wood stoves and pellet stoves in Maryland has never been easier.

To help Maryland homeowners invest in clean energy, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) provides grants for clean burning wood stoves—that displace electric, non-natural gas fossil fuel heating systems or old wood stoves—at incentive levels outlined in the chart below. This pilot program has been extended indefinitely.

Goals and Incentives

On Sept. 7, 2012, MEA began accepting applications for clean burning wood stove installations as part of its Residential Clean Energy Grant Program. This is the first in a series of several activities that MEA plans to facilitate in order to develop the bio-energy market in Maryland. Incentives are as follows:

Stick Burning Stove     Any number of BTUs/hr     $500/installation
Pellet Burning Stove   Any number of BTUs/hr     $700/installation

Grants are allocated on a first come/first served basis across technologies, and are subject to change in amount and existence based on funding availability.

The Best Time to Buy a Pellet Stove in Maryland

It’s July. Temperatures outside are approaching triple digits. So naturally you’re thinking about a toasty warm pellet stove, right? Probably not, but here’s why you should be…

Most consumers don’t begin to think about heating their home until the temperatures start to dip in late October and November. By this time, sellers of pellet stoves, fireplaces and inserts are seeing sales increase steadily. Increases in sales mean that those who purchase during these months may have to wait in line to have their new pellet stove or fireplace installed. That could mean waiting until well after the holidays to begin enjoying warmth and energy efficiency. It also means that you may not be getting your best deal on the purchase of a pellet stove or fireplace.

Considering the purchase of a new pellet stove during the summer months will ensure that you get your best deal, and that you are first in line to have your pellet stove installed in time for cold autumn weather.

When you are considering who to choose to purchase your new pellet stove from, think Ace Hardware & Hearth, and Ace Home & Leisure.
