Wood Stove Change-out Program (Update 04/18/16)

The Tehama County Air Pollution Control District (District) is pleased to announce the Tehama County Wood Stove Change-out Program. The District’s Board recently approved this voucher program specifically intended as an incentive to encourage property owners to purchase a new clean-burning heating device. A total of $15,000 is available beginning April 18, 2016 on a first come first served basis. Tehama County property owners may obtain either a $500, $750 or $1000 voucher, eligible low-income applicants will qualify for an additional $250 on the purchase of a new EPA-certified woodstove, insert, pellet stove, or gas-burning heating device.

District vouchers will be issued to property owners only. To qualify, a non-EPA certified woodstove or heating device must be removed and replaced with an EPA Phase II woodstove or cleaner burning device (e.g. pellet stove, gas fired, or certified equivalent). Vouchers may also be issued to retrofit an existing fireplace by installing an EPA-approved wood-burning insert, pellet stove or new gas stove.

In order to receive a voucher participants must submit a voucher application to the District, if funding is available a voucher will be issued to the applicant. Purchases must be made through our participating retailers. A list of participating retails can be found here. Information about the new program and applications can be found on the “wood stove change-out” link below or by clicking here.

  • CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Exchange – Compost Additions to Grazed Grasslands

    On June 9, 2015 the Tehama County Board of Supervisor’s approved a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Tehama County Air Pollution Control District (TCAPCD) and Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) to indirectly participate in the CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange. This exchange is a completely voluntary program. The California Air Pollution Control Officers Association (CAPCOA), representing California's 35 local air districts, has launched the CAPCOA Greenhouse Gas Reduction Exchange. The Exchange provides a reliable, low-cost, secure platform to encourage locally generated, high quality GHG emission reduction credits that can be used to meet CEQA or other compliance requirements. Studies have shown that a one-time application of compost to grazed grasslands can have lasting co-benefits including locally-improved air quality, accelerated plant growth, and increased water-hold capacity in grasslands.
