Spotted a news story this morning which reports that Massachusetts will pay up to $2000 to encourage owners of older "dirty" stoves to upgrade. Until Jan. 17 the program is open only to low-income residents, with a $2000 rebate voucher. After that date, it is open to all MA residents, with a $1000 voucher. The official announcement by the Departmentt of Energy is here: http://www.mass.gov/eea/pr-2012/woodstove-trade-in-program-for-new-clean-stoves.html -dan EDIT: I did not see the existing topics on this until I scrolled pretty deep, so apologies for the duplication. I don't see a way to delete this post, but mods feel free to do so.
