Endless Mountains Resource, Conservation, and Development Council (EMRCD), a multi county non-profit organization, has announced a program to promote the use of wood as a renewable home heating fuel for Bradford, Sullivan, and Lycoming County residents. Residents of these counties are being offered a chance for a $500 cost share payment toward the purchase of a new EPA certified wood or pellet stove.

In addition to being a resident of one of these counties, one must be currently using oil, propane, or coal as their primary home heating fuel, and attend an upcoming educational event slated for 6:30 to 8:30 pm on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at the Stoll Natural Resource Center in Wysox.

At a similar event held on Nov. 14, attendees took advantage of $200 discounts on Harman and Quadra-fire stoves and inserts. Other discounts may be available at on Dec. 2.

Wood burning representatives will be available to answer your questions and take applications for cost share money. Attendees at either one of these events have the opportunity to learn more about how to become a user of a renewable, clean burning, cost effective fuel.

Submissions from legitimate organizations and event coordinators are welcome and will be published as space and time allow. This website is operated by Endless Mountains Media Services. I am seeking submissions of news stories, promotional press releases, and photos for posting with full recognition for the submitter. I am also hoping to build a base of correspondents who would enjoy being my "ears and eyes" in parts of the four county region where news is happening.
