State Rebate Programs

Save on your installation costs.

Several states offer rebates on a first-come, first-served basis towards the installation of a MESys AutoPellet boiler or furnace. These rebates can significantly offset the cost of installing wood pellet heating systems.

In addition to state rebates, there are also several easy financing options available to most consumers.

Maine (Efficiency Maine)
  • 33% up to $3,000 towards equipment and installation
  • Eligible 1 to 4 unit residential buildings serving as principal residence for occupants, new or retrofit.
  • The system must include a bulk fill system that would provide continuous heat without human intervention for 2 weeks (estimated at 1 ton pellet capacity), or has a minimum 500 pound capacity fill bin and a permanently installed back-up heating system (propane, oil, natural gas) that automatically switches fuel sources and provides continuous central heat to the home using the same thermostatic control and heating distribution system as the pellet boiler if the biomass heating system runs out of pellets.
