The Town of Truckee is still offering a rebate for non-compliant solid fuel burning devices. In addition to the Town of Truckee’s rebate the Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District is also offering vouchers for woodstove change-outs. The available rebates from the Town are as follows:
- $600 for replacement of a non-certified solid fuel burning device with a Phase II EPA Certified device, or
- $1,000 for replacement of a non-certified solid fuel burning device with a gas insert, free-standing gas stove or zero clearance gas fireplace
Applicants can receive a maximum of $1,600 in combined rebates per residential unit. Rebates are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and will end when the designated air quality mitigation funds are exhausted.
“The Northern Sierra Air Quality Management District is also currently offering vouchers for woodstove change-outs. A standard voucher is $1,000 and low-income vouchers can be up to $3,500. “Double-dipping” by applying for both the Town of Truckee rebate and the NSAQMD rebate is encouraged!”
If you haven’t already taken advantage of this woodstove rebate, what a great time to do so. With all the rebates and the benefits to the environment, there is no reason why you should wait. To get more information about this program, please visit the Town of Truckee here.
