11 YEARS IN THE MAKING
The Biomass Thermal Energy Council (BTEC) and its coalition have worked with Congress since 2009 to amend the tax code to incentivize modern wood heating systems through the Biomass Thermal Utilization Act (BTU Act).
The Alliance for Green Heat, Forest Energy Corporation, Innovative Natural Resource Solutions, Maine Energy Systems, Orion Advocates, Pellet Fuels Institute, Renewable Heating Solutions, Sustainable Northwest, and many more organizations played integral roles to achieve this commonsense tax reform, making renewable wood heating more affordable.
