Up to $750 rebate possible if wood stove exchange program fires up in Barriere

2015–16 Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program is to encourage BC residents to replace older, smoky wood stoves

North Thompson Star/Journal

The 2015–16 Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program is to encourage BC residents to replace older, smoky wood stoves with low-emission appliances including new CSA-/EPA-certified clean-burning wood stoves. The deadline for local governments to apply for funding through the program is Oct. 9, 2015. Before the District of Barriere and TNRD – Area O submit an application as partners to the Province to be considered for this year’s program, we need to determine if there is sufficient interest in the Barriere area to participate.

The program would provide up to a $750 rebate on the purchase of a new appliance.

There are approximately 70,000 older model wood stoves still in use throughout the province. Older higher-polluting wood stoves can affect the health of homeowners, neighbours and overall air shed health.

If you are interested in this opportunity to upgrade your older stove, or if you would like more information about this program, please contact the District of Barriere by emailing channigan@barriere.ca or by calling (250) 672-9751, prior to Oct. 5, 2015.
