The Maryland Energy Administration used to provide rebates for wood and pellet stoves. Wood and pellet stoves had to have an efficiency listing of 75% or higher to be eligible for the rebate. The rebates were $500 for wood stoves and $700 for pellet stoves. Additional qualifications included securing a permit for the installation, based on county requirements, and professional installation or inspection.

If you believe this was an important program, please contact MEA to encourage them to reinstate it.
