Town Announces New Woodstove Rebate Program
Beginning August 1, 2016, rebates will be available for the removal of non-compliant solid fuel burning devices, including woodstoves and fireplace inserts.
The Truckee Town Council reinstated the Non-Certified Woodstove Rebate Program on July 12, 2016. The Council had previously allocated $64,000 as part of the Fiscal Year 16/17 budget cycle from the Town’s air quality mitigation fund for reinstatement of the program, which initially ended in June 2008.
The available rebates will be $600 for replacement of a non-compliant solid fuel burning device with a Phase II EPA Certified woodstove or pellet stove, or $1,000 for replacement of a non-compliant solid fuel burning device with a gas insert, free-standing gas stove or zero clearance gas fireplace, for a maximum of $1,600 per residential unit. The rebate program for the removal of non-compliant solid fuel burning appliances is available on a first-come, first-served basis and will expire once the designated air quality mitigation funds have been exhausted.
