Sacramento Metro AQMD Wood Stove & Fireplace Incentive Programs No Due Date Given Varies

There are an estimated 320,000 fireplaces and wood stoves in Sacramento County homes. Wood smoke created from the use of wood and pellets in these devices is a significant source of particulate matter, hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, toxic air contaminants and odors, especially during the winter. These pollutants are linked to serious health impacts. 

The Sac Metro Air District is committed to reducing pollution coming from wood burning fireplaces and wood stoves. It has an incentive program that helps people change out their existing wood burning units to cleaner units, and an enforcement program to stimulate compliance with rules related to wintertime burning activities.

Placer County APCD Community Air Protection Incentive Program No Due Date Given Varies

In July of 2017, the California Assembly and Senate passed AB 617 directing the California Air Resources Board (CARB) to develop the Community Air Protection Program (CAPP).  The Program’s focus is to reduce exposure in communities most impacted by air pollution and uses a variety of strategies including community-level monitoring, uniform emission reporting across the State, stronger regulation of pollution sources and incentives for both mobile and stationary sources.  To support AB 617 requirements, the Legislature has appropriated incentive funding, Community Air Protection (CAP) Incentives, to be administered by air districts in partnership with local communities, to support early actions to address localized air pollution.  The District will work collaboratively with CARB and actively engage with members of impacted communities in Placer County to create a community-focused action framework to address emission impacts, respond to concerns, improve air quality, and reduce exposure to criteria air pollutants and toxic air contaminants.

Northern Sierra AQMD Carl Moyer Program No Due Date Given Varies

Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program provides incentive grants for cleaner-than-required engines, equipment and other sources of pollution providing early or extra emission reductions. Eligible projects include cleaner on-road, off-road and stationary agricultural pump engines. The program achieves near-term reductions in emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and reactive organic gas (ROG) which are necessary for California to meet its clean air commitments under the State Implementation Plan. NOx and ROG combine in the presence of sunlight to form ozone (smog), while PM, a component of diesel exhaust, has been identified as a toxic air contaminant by the Air Resources Board. Additional information can be found at the ARB website
