MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermonters can get help in replacing old wood stoves with new cleaner burning models.

The wood stove change-out program provides a payment of up to $1,500 toward the purchase of a new wood stove or wood pellet stove if an old wood stove that is not certified by the Environmental Protection Agency is replaced.

The non EPA-certified stoves were made before about 1988.

The goals of the program offered by the Clean Energy Development Fund and the Agency of Natural Resources Division of Air Quality and Climate are to reduce emissions; increase the use of cleaner wood burning stoves; promote a sustainable and healthy Vermont forest economy and support Vermont wood and pellet manufacturers and dealers.
