PON 3010 - Renewable Heat NY Biomass Boiler Program has been updated and revised to combine all programs (small biomass boilers, large biomass boilers, and residential pellet stoves) under one solicitation.

Substantive changes have also been made to the individual programs. Please see the current funding opportunities page for a complete accounting of those changes.

The RHNY program provides incentives toward the installed costs of high-efficiency, low-emission wood heating systems across New York State. Recent biomass technologies, which have higher efficiency and lower emissions, are a cleaner way to use wood for heat than traditional wood stoves and boilers, making them a viable alternative to propane or fuel oil. The high-efficiency systems also provide more automation, use less fuel, and often save customers money.

The goal of the RHNY program is to spur wider market adoption of high-efficiency, low-emission wood heating through education, customer support, and helping the development of New York-based advanced technology heating products. RHNY also aims to reduce wood smoke, fine particles, and carbon monoxide emissions. This program strongly encourages the retirement and proper recycling of old wood heating systems and replacement by advanced technologies.

 

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) requests applications from qualified Boiler Installers/Contractors to participate in a financial incentive program to install approved pellet boilers and advanced cordwood boilers with thermal storage for eligible residential and commercial customers. Additional funding may be made available depending on funding availability, customer demand, and program success. The program will be implemented on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Renewable Heat NY (RHNY) Biomass Boiler Program is open to all New York State residential customers with one- to four-unit homes and commercial customers who are interested in installing approved biomass boilers that have an output of 300,000 British thermal units per hour (Btu/hr) or less. Applications must be submitted by an Eligible Installer/Contractor with a completed Project Application Form (Attachment B), which includes the customer’s information and signature. There are also recycling incentives to encourage customers to replace old wood, coal, or pellet boilers and furnaces with RHNY qualified boilers.

 

If goods or services are made to this solicitation notification will be posted on NYSERDA’s website at: www.nyserda.ny.gov/funding-opportunities
