To help Maryland homeowners invest in clean energy, the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) provides grants for clean burning wood and pellet stoves that displace electric, non-natural gas fossil fuel heating systems or old woodstoves at incentive levels outlined in the chart below. Regulations for this program can be viewed here.NOTICE: ALL new and replacement wood and pellet stoves MUST obtain a permit before installation. For a list of county permitting offices, click on PDF to the rightWood and Pellet Stove County Permit Office List.pdf. Grants will not be issued to applicants who do not receive the proper permits for stoves. To be eligible, stick (log) stoves may not emit more than 3 grams of particulate matter (PM) per hour and pellet stoves may not emit more than 2 grams of PM per hour. In addition, please note that eligible stoves with an EPA efficiency rating receive a higher financial incentive than stoves without an EPA efficiency rating. The list of EPA certified stoves potentially eligible for the higher incentive can be found here.
The Maryland Energy Administration has a two-tier incentive award for each stove category. This is based on the required particulate emissions limit and the encouragement of consumers to choose a stove with an EPA published efficiency rating.
Grants are allocated on a first come/first served basis across technologies, and are subject to change in amount and existence based on funding availability.
