Maricopa County, Arizona, launched a program to replace outdoor wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits with propane-fueled options in an effort to improve air quality and reduce air pollution.

The Arizona Propane Gas Association partnered with Maricopa County to match rebate dollars and promote propane. The Propane Education & Research Council provided $34,576 for the program, encouraging 1,000 homeowners to replace the outdoor wood-burning fireplaces and fire pits with authorized, self-standing propane heating devices.

Vouchers valued at $75 were made available through the program, which is now closed but scheduled to reopen in the fall.
