Program helps homeowners upgrade their wood burning stoves or fireplaces
The Wood Stove and Fireplace Conversion Program will open the registration for eligible Cache County homeowners on Feb. 27 starting at 6 a.m. The financial incentives help households convert their fireplace or wood stove to natural gas or propane fueled. The program is also an opportunity to improve their indoor air quality, and improve wintertime pollution caused by wood burning.
The program is targeted to counties that experience poor wintertime air quality.
