Tax-Credits & Incentives

State & Local

While thermal biomass systems have recently gained a federal tax credit through The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (H.R. 1: Div. B, Sec. 1121), state credits and incentives still lag far behind those available for other renewable technologies like wind, solar and geothermal.

A few states have been more proactive in promoting clean biomass technologies, which often particularly helps low and middle income families who use wood or pellets as a primary source of heat. More states are beginning to see thermal biomass as a strategy for lowering their overall carbon emissions.
