The Maryland Energy Administration provides ongoing rebates for wood and pellet stoves. Rebates are $500 for wood stoves that emit 3 grams an hour less and $700 for pellet stoves that emit 2 grams an hour less. Only residents who heat with electricity, oil or propane (or wood) are eligible as a way of focusing rebates for wood and pellet heating in rural areas and for families with higher heating costs. For more information see the MEA webpage
and the Alliance Q & A
|Maryland provides a minor state-level incentive with the Wood Heating Fuel Exemption. All wood or "refuse derived" heating fuel for residential use is exempt from state sales tax.
