Northeastern Fireplace & Design has some good news to share with homeowners in New York State. The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority, or NYSERDA, is offering financial incentives for homeowners to buy a wood pellet stove or insert. NYSERDA recognizes that pellet stoves offer an efficient and cleaner-burning energy-producing alternative than traditional wood stoves and boilers. Since pellet stoves tend to burn less fuel, they often save homeowners money. Now, the state agency is sweetening the pot by offering incentives in the form of financial assistance or low-interest-loans for this environmentally friendly energy choice.
New York State homeowners have two financial incentive alternatives to consider:
• $1,500 for the purchase of a new pellet stove with recycling of an existing wood, pellet stove, or insert (with firebox), in a primary residence
• Households with income less than 80% of county median may qualify for an incentive of $2,000 for the purchase of a new pellet stove in a primary residence and an additional $500 if an existing wood, pellet stove, or insert (with firebox) is recycled
These valuable NYSERDA incentives are only available for primary residences in the state without access to natural gas.
New York State homeowners may also qualify for low-interest loans to help defray eligible project costs.
The NYSERDA pellet stove incentive program has specific requirements regarding new stoves or inserts , and that’s where Northeastern Fireplace & Design can offer expert guidance. For this incentive program, NYSERDA stipulates that pellet stoves must have industry-leading particulate matter output of 2.0 grams per hour or less and be on the USEPA Certified Wood Heater list. Also, bulk pellets must be stored outside to avoid potential off-gassing of carbon monoxide from pellets.
