Critical Definitions

Wood Stove – A wood fired appliance, which includes, but is not limited to, a freestanding conventional masonry or prefabricated zero clearance fireplace, any similar fireplace whose operation requires it to be built into the structure as a component of the building, franklin stove, air tight stove, fireplace insert, or any other stove or appliance designed to burn solid fuel for heating and/or enjoyment purposes.

Non-Compliant – Any wood stove that does not meet TRPA emission standards, as defined in the TRPA Code of Ordinances. 

Removed – Existing wood stoves are taken out of a building and are not replaced with another wood stove.

Retrofitted – Existing wood stoves that do not meet TRPA emission standards are removed and replaced by ones that do meet TRPA emission standards prior to any sale, transfer, or conveyance of any building.

Accounting Period and Scale

Wood stove compliance is evidenced by a statement from the sellers of individual properties made under penalty of perjury. This statement is made on a form provided by TRPA. This form requires that property owners verify that 1) the structure does not contain any existing wood heaters or, 2) that all existing wood heaters in the building, excluding legally existing open fireplaces that are not primary heat sources, conform to the applicable emission standards. The statement is submitted to TRPA prior to the sale, transfer, or conveyance of any building and a copy provided to the new owner no later than at close of escrow. This statement is required for all subsequent sales, transfers, or conveyance of the property.
