Wood Stoves & Boilers May Be Eligible for Tax Credit in New Bill

Senators Snowe, Bingaman and Feinstein introduced the "Cut Energy Bills at Home Act" which would give up to a $5,000 tax credit for performance-based home improvements.  The bill, as written, makes biomass heaters eligible if savings can be calculated with approved energy efficiency software packages, such as RESNET, BPI or an alternative software. The Alliance for Green Heat is working with Congressional offices and efficiency standards organizations to ensure that there will not be unforseen barriers for biomass heaters. Currently, most energy efficiency software does not have sufficient ability to analyze performance and savings of biomass heaters. 


  1. While smart grid technology is an incredibly efficient method of measuring overall energy usage, waste, costs, and functionality, it is only as good as our end users and consumers. Smart grid technology developers and manufacturers can spend all their time, money, and resources improving and developing smart grid technology, however, enterprise-level companies, businesses, and home residents are the ones that will truly benefit. Enterprise-level companies and businesses want to ensure that smart grid technology truly provides them with the data and information needed for decision-making.

Small businesses often do not have the financial or physical resources necessary for such an undertaking. Best Energy efficiency software Service
