Residential Bulk-Fed Wood-Pellet Central Boilers and Furnace Rebate Program

February 26, 2024


The New Hampshire Department of Energy offers rebates -- funded by the New Hampshire Renewable Energy Fund -- of 40% of the installed cost of qualifying new residential bulk-fed, wood-pellet central heating boilers or furnaces. The maximum rebate amount available is $10,500, which includes a supplemental adder of $100 per ton for systems larger than three tons (at a max of $500). To qualify, systems must (1) become operational on or after July 9, 2016; (2) be at least 80% efficient; (3) meet certain air quality standards; and (4) be installed by a qualified installer or a licensed plumber with wood-pellet central boiler system training. Additional system requirements are specified in the program application. Modifications to existing systems are not eligible to receive funding under this program.

To receive a rebate, applicants must submit a pre-approval application to ensure funding availability. After receiving verification of eligibility and securing a place in the funding queue, applicants have three months to complete the installation. Applicants must submit a final rebate request and required documentation after the system installation is complete. When all available program funding has been reserved for approved projects, applicants that meet all program and project requirements will be placed on a waiting list. Projects placed on the waiting list are not guaranteed funding.
