Go electric and get a 20% incentive!
Gasless, but not gutless. Quiet, but not shy. This is not your grandfather’s battery-powered mower. Advances in battery technology have come a long way in recent years. More power is now being packed into batteries so your mower can speedily deliver a knock-out punch to your lawn. Maybe it is time to consider upgrading your conventional, gas-burning mower with a new electric or battery-powered option.
LOWER ENERGY COSTS
- Depending on how often you mow, electric-powered mowers will cost about $15 per year in electricity. Gas mowers use approximately $30 of gasoline.
- No sparkplugs, air filters, fuel filters or oil change.
- Electric mowers create up to 75 decibels of sound, which is similar to a washing machine. Gasoline mowers can exceed 95 decibels, which is comparable to a motorcycle on the highway.
- No toxic gas emissions including nitrogen oxides, airborne particulates, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.
FOLLOW THESE EASY STEPS:
- Obtain an EnergyWise application form.
- Purchase your choice of a new battery-powered or corded electric mower. Chargers and additional battery purchases are available for the incentive at the time of the initial mower purchase. However, taxes, delivery/shipping and set up costs are not.
- Complete the application and return it to your local utility with a copy of proof of purchase.
Mowers must be new and purchased on or after January 1, 2022. They cannot be used, previously owned or factory reconditioned. Riding, walk-behind and robotic mowers are eligible for the incentive.
