    • A Woodstove Change-out Campaign is a mechanism you can use to reduce the amount of air pollution from wood smoke in your area.
    • This voluntary program can be an effective way to reduce emissions of particulates and air toxics. For more health information click here.
    • This Woodstove Change-out Campaign provides vouchers for rebates of $450 to encourage people to replace their old, conventional woodstoves with a certified wood, pellet or gas stove that burns more cleanly and efficiently. For a list of certified* woodstoves click here. Please be advised that funding is limited.
    • Old woodstoves will be required to be destroyed and new stoves must be professionally installed.

      The Vermont Air Pollution Control Division (VT APCD) is offering rebate vouchers of $75 for the replacement of old catalysts (>5 years old) in EPA-certified catalytic wood stoves.

      Applications for rebate vouchers will be accepted from March 9-April 30, 2009.  In order to qualify for this program, one must first apply for a rebate voucher.  Then, after a voucher is issued, one may purchase a new catalyst under this program, provided the voucher is valid and the program requirements have been met. 

      Here are two options for purchasing a new catalyst under this program.

      OPTION 1.  After you receive a rebate voucher for $75 you may purchase your new catalyst from s retailer of your choice and pay the full price to the retailer.  After you have purchased your new catalyst, then submit an invoice with your receipt, tracking form (to be sent to you with your voucher) and old catalyst to the APCD for reimbursement to you.  Reimbursement will be made within 30 days.

      OPTION 2.  After you receive a rebate voucher for $75, you may contact Condar, a participating factory, to purchase your new catalyst.  They will provide an additional incentive of $25 for a total rebate of $100.  See http://www.woodstovecombustors.com/Vermont.html or call (828) 894-8383 extension 232 for further details.  Condar will deduct $100 from the price of your new catalyst, and you will be required to submit your old catalyst to Condar.

      The VT APCD reviews applications to determine if the preliminary qualification requirements have been met.  Qualified applicants will receive a rebate voucher that will be valid for 3 weeks.

      Call ( 888) 520-4879 or (802) 241-3848 with your questions. You may also email Heidi Hales at heidi.hales@state.vt.us with your questions about replacing your woodstove. 

      See the application form for further details.
