Subsidies for installation of firewood stoves and sales of firewood in Inagawa Town, Hyogo Prefecture


In Inagawa Town, Hyogo Prefecture, where I live next door, there is a subsidy for installing a wood stove.

So I called the Inagawa town office and asked.

First of all, regarding the amount of the subsidy, it seems that this year we have secured a frame of up to 500,000 yen per year.

It seems that it is a subsidy of up to 100,000 yen per case, up to 1/3 of the cost of purchasing and installing a wood stove, pellet stove, and chimney.

So, if you live in Inagawa, you can also purchase a wood stove and chimney at Yama Entotsuya and ask for it to be installed! ! !

As of December 14, 2020, two frames have already been issued.

So it seems that there are still 3 slots left.

Since it is first-come, first-served, those who are interested should apply as soon as possible.

Also, as a point to note, it takes about 7 to 10 days from the application to the decision of issuance, so please install it after the application is passed.

It seems that there is no subsidy for flying installation.

It's been about 10 years since this system started, but recently it seems that there is a limit every year with only about 2 to 3 subsidies per year.

I don't know what will happen this year...

Well, there were a few points about the conditions related to the subsidy application.

  • Consent of Adjacent Owners
  • For 6 years, purchase firewood or pellets from the forestry association in Inagawa Town, and submit an annual report.
  • You live in Inagawa or plan to install it in a house you plan to live in in the future.

I will take a closer look

The owner of the adjoining land is to obtain the approval of the person who actually lives there, and generally the houses on both sides and the back are subject.

Recently, there have been complaints about smoke and odors, so I was told that they would go for a field survey.

Next is the purchase of firewood or pellets from the forestry association, but it seems that it is not covered in the case of self-collection of firewood. That's why I want to collect firewood by myself! It seems that there is no problem for those who think.

The conditions for living in Inagawa also apply to corporate business operators.

Installation in coffee shops and restaurants may increase the fashionableness and lead to attracting customers!

I also called the forestry association in Inagawa Town.

However, I can't connect easily because I'm away.

Officials also said...

Finally connected on the third day! ! !

By the way, I was told after connecting that I could not answer the phone until after 3:00 pm.

It was also impossible when I called around 6:30.

As for the price, firewood is 380 yen/bundle including tax.

Originally it was 385 yen, but 5 yen was said to be a service.

Currently, there are about 10 to 20 bundles of firewood, but it seems that it is difficult to gather firewood.

As for firewood, a part-time forestry worker who is a member of the forestry cooperative processes and ships the remaining trees such as sawtooth oak and oak after cutting down the hodagi for shiitake mushrooms.

That's why he said that the number would not gather very much.

Everyone was busy because they were salaried workers.

Regarding pellets, they sell 10kg plastic bags for 660 yen including tax.

Regarding this, they said that they have a reasonable amount, but they said that it would be difficult for the supplier to respond to large orders in tons.

It seems that it is not possible to produce so much because it is a small pellet making machine.

He said that it was only introduced to deal with cedars and cypresses that came out along with felling.

As for the purchase method, please come to the original clean center in Tsukinami, Inagawa-cho to pick it up.

Pick-ups are three times a week, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, between 10:00 and 16:00.

I think it would be better to call in advance when purchasing, but you probably won't be able to get through.

In that case, I was told that if I could contact the Inagawa Town Hall, I would be contacted again.
