Fireplaces and stove – specifically those that are clean burning pellet or wood stoves – provide an energy efficient source of heat for your home during the winter months. So much so that the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) provides grants for replacing your electric, non-natural gas fossil fuel heating system or old wood stoves with a clean burning wood stove. These incentives are significant, too. A stick burning stove with any number of BTUs / hour comes with a $500 per installation incentive. A pellet burning stove with any number of BTUs / hour comes with a $700 per installation incentive.
How to Take Advantage of the Maryland Wood Stove Incentive Program
The Residential Clean Energy Grant Program began in September of 2012 and has been extended indefinitely.
With incentives of up to $700 per installation, owning an energy efficient clean burning wood stove 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. Both stick and pellet stoves must meet certain requirements for eligibility. Additionally, you must submit an application to the MEA. 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.
