Efficiency Vermont offers $650 rebate for wood, pellet stoves

By Efficiency Vermont | December 05, 2018

Vermonters thinking of purchasing a new cordwood- or pellet-burning stove now have a new incentive to opt for a high-efficiency model.

Efficiency Vermont is partnering with participating stove dealers around the state to apply a $650 discount at the point of purchase for select stove models. To qualify for the rebate the stoves must be professionally installed.

The discount comes as Vermonters are thinking of ways to button up their homes for winter, making them more comfortable, affordable, and environmentally friendly.

According to the Vermont 2016 Wood Heat Baseline Study, 38 percent of homes in the state are heated in part by wood. The wood heat industry supports more than 1,000 full-time jobs and displaces approximately 68 million gallons of fuel oil each year.

“Efficient wood heat is a great companion to a well air sealed, insulated, and ventilated home,” said Carol Weston, Efficiency Vermont Program Director. “When burned in a high-efficiency stove, locally sourced cordwood and wood pellets provide a great strategy for Vermonters to save money, lower their carbon footprint, and support their local economy.”

The Efficiency Vermont discount is available through participating retailers who sell cordwood and pellet stoves that meet efficiency and emission standards.

Larger rebates of up to $1,000 are available for Vermonters who are replacing older model stoves and taking them out of service.
