Through its Clean Heating and Cooling program, MassCEC offers rebates of up to $12,000, based on system size, to eligible homeowners who install qualifying central wood pellet heating systems, which operate like traditional oil boilers or furnaces, but run on wood pellets made from materials like compacted sawdust. Rebates will be available through September 30, 2015.

Residents interested in central wood pellet heating systems for their homes can learn more about the technology, then work with an eligible installer to determine if a system would work in their home. Installers will work with homeowners to determine eligibility for rebates, as well as navigate the application process.
