Q: Can a pellet boiler owner with an existing bin use this incentive?
A: Yes! If the pellet boiler is on the Eligible Equipment Inventory and has been in operation for 1+ years, the incentive may be used to expand pellet storage by adding an additional bin to the system. The RERC/CEDF and Efficiency Vermont pellet boiler incentives already require a bulk storage bin, and the voucher may not be used to add an additional bin to the system just months after initial installation.
Q: How do I tell if my pellet stove is EPA 2015 or 2020 certified?
A: Check the back of your stove for an EPA certification label (click here for example) and work with your pellet bin vendor to confirm stove eligibility.
