Renewable Heat New York Collaborative Stove Design Workshop November 2014 Ellen Burkhard, Ph.D. Senior Project Manager
Renewable Heat New York Announced in Governor Cuomo’s 2014 State of the State Address Built upon NYSERDA’s biomass heating R&D program to bring advanced technologies into the NYS heating market Retirement of outdoor wood boilers, indoor wood boilers and wood stoves Commercial pellet boiler heating systems Residential pellet boiler heating systems and stoves Residential/small commercial advanced cordwood boilers with full thermal storage Continued R&D Workforce development for proper system design, sizing and quality installations John Rhodes, President and CEO, NYSERDA announcing Renewable Heat NY July 29 th, Photo credit: Pyramid Energy EES.

THANK YOU! Ellen Burkhard Renewable Heat NY
The Installer works with the customer to assess the project and fill-out the application, signed off by the customer. The Project Application includes information about the home, existing boiler, and the biomass boiler being installed with the Manual J calculation attached. Once the application is received and meets the program requirements, NYSERDA will approve the application and notify the Installer. Project Application Process
Heating Fuels ($ per MMBtu) Energy Trends Using NYSERDA report “Patterns & Trends: New York State Energy Profiles ” data from “Historical Prices: ” and using conversion factors *2013 only has through April 2013
Pellet Stoves The following incentives are available toward the purchase of a new pellet stove for use in a primary residence, without natural gas service: QualificationIncentive Amount Market Rate with Recycling$1,000 Income Qualified (No Recycling)$1,000 Income Qualified, add optional Recycling$1,500 The new stove can provide either primary or supplemental heating and must be at or below 2.0 grams per hour particulate matter emissions on the ‘EPA List of Certified Wood Heaters’ (latest version May 2014).
