State Kicks Off Next Round of Wood-Stove Trade-In Program
WHATELY, Mass. (WGGB) — A new round of the popular wood-stove trade in program has been announced by the Patrick administration.
Up to $1 million has been committed to the effort.
Massachusetts residents are eligible for rebates up to $2,000 toward the purchase of newer, more efficient models that burn less wood, and put less pollution into the air.
Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Rick Sullivan came to Whately today to help spread the word.
“It allows us to let customers and residents make their own energy decisions, controlling their cost and their long-range use of energy as we in Massachusetts enter the energy pipeline, so they can do it more cheaply,” Sullivan explains.
This program was introduced last year.
