$250 - $325
The County of Marin has created a rebate program to encourage homeowners to remove or replace non-EPA certified wood-burning heaters (wood stoves and fireplace inserts) with cleaner burning stoves or gas insert replacements. To be eligible for the $250 incentive, the wood burning stove must be disposed of at an approved recycling facility. If the unit is replaced, it must be replaced by an EPA Phase II certified wood stove, fireplace insert, pellet stove or gas stove. Currently this program is available to homes in unincorporated Marin County (areas outside of towns or cities) and homes in the City of Mill Valley, Town of Fairfax, City of Larkspur and City of San Rafael. Residents of unincorporated Marin County can receive an additional rebate of $75 for the installation of an EPA Phase II rated woodstove appliance, gas heater or pellet stove as a replacement for a non-EPA rated wood-burning appliance or fireplace or for taking the fireplace out of service.
