$1000 Voucher to Replace Old Wood Stove
The Wood Smoke Reduction Program offers homeowners and renters $1000 vouchers to replace their old, non-EPA certified wood stove, fireplace insert or open-hearth fireplace with an EPA certified heating device.
Residents must live within the Yolo-Solano County Air Quality Management District’s boundaries. They also must use their current, old, non EPA certified wood stove, fireplace insert, or open hearth fireplace as the primary source of heat in the home.
This program was created to help reduce the air pollution that comes from wood smoke, which contains fine particulate matter (PM2.5), black carbon, toxic air contaminates and greenhouse gas emissions. During winter months, weather conditions and elevated uses of fireplaces and wood stoves raises the levels of fine particulate matter in the air and traps wood smoke closer to the ground and the air people breathe.
