Eastern Kern APCD

Wood Smoke Reduction Program

Wood Smoke Reduction Program is currently out of funds

The District offers rebate vouchers to replace Non-EPA certified wood/pellet stove with a new EPA certified wood/pallet stove, or to install an EPA certified gas, electric, or catalytic fireplace insert into a home that uses the heating device as its primary source of heat.

The District is currently out of WSRP funds and is no longer accepting applications. However, If you submitted a complete application and found to be eligible by 1/31/2023, but was not awarded a voucher due to lack of funding, your application has been placed on standby.  In the event additional WSRP funds become available, standby applications will be processed in the order they were received until all funds are exhausted.  The District anticipates the WSRP will have FY 2023/24 funds budgeted, and will resume October 1, 2023.

No retroactive rebates are allowed.

A Standard Voucher award of $2,500 is available District-wide. 

A Low-Income Voucher award of $4,000 is available for an applicant that can demonstrate eligibility by providing proof of participation in one of the following low-income assistance programs:

  • U.S. Department of Agriculture Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program;
  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Low Income Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP);
  • California Alternate Rates for Energy (CARE) Program with any utility company.

Please review the program guidelines for more information.
