CVRD raises rebate offers to switch from wood stoves
The Comox Valley Regional District has increased the incentive for people wood burning stoves to switch to cleaner-burning systems. The rebates apply to any wood stove manufactured prior to 2014.
Thanks to the provincial wood stove exchange program announced this week, the CVRD is now offering:
• $250 for exchanging a non EPA/CSA certified wood stove for a new CSAB415 wood stove
• $600 for exchanging a wood stove manufactured prior to 2014 with a new gas, propane or pellet stove
• $1,000 for exchanging a wood stove manufactured prior to 2014 with an electric air-source heat pump
The CVRDis one of three regional districts in BC to offer this type of exchange. The other two are the Alberni-Clayoquot and Cowichan Valley Regional Districts.
Funding support for the Comox Valley wood stove exchange program has been provided by the BC Ministry of Environment, the BC Lung Association and Island Health. The Comox Valley Regional District also contributes a top-up incentive to applicants upgrading to these cleaner-burning heating sources.
