Commercial Electric Lawn & Garden Equipment Exchange Program
The South Coast Air Quality Management District is proud to announce the launch of the new Commercial Electric Lawn and Garden Equipment Incentive and Exchange Program. This multi-year program has been specifically developed for commercial gardeners and landscapers, local government agencies, school districts and colleges, and non-profit organizations.
PROGRAM GOALS: Improve air quality by exchanging older, polluting gasoline- or diesel-powered commercial lawn and garden equipment for new zero emission, battery electric commercial grade equipment for operation within South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) four county region. Special focus will be given to environmental justice (EJ)or disadvantaged communities.
ELIGIBILITY: Commercial gardeners and landscapers, local government agencies, school districts and colleges, and non-profit organizations are eligible to participate. One equivalent operable gasoline- or diesel-powered piece of lawn and garden equipment must be scraped to qualify for incentive funding towards battery electric replacement equipment.
