Lawn Care for Cleaner Air

Get Rebates on Electric Lawn Equipment

 

 

It’s no secret that gas-powered lawn equipment is bad for the air. It’s old technology, like driving a car without a catalytic converter, producing dirty, unfiltered emissions. In fact, one hour of mowing with a typical gas-powered lawnmower produces the same amount of smog-forming pollution as driving your car for 200 miles—enough to go from Louisville to Nashville. These emissions contribute significantly to ground-level air pollution and are especially harmful to sensitive groups such as children and the elderly.

The Louisville Metro Air Pollution Control District's Lawn Care for Cleaner Air Program encourages Louisville Metro residents to reduce these harmful lawn-related air emissions by using much cleaner electric and human-powered lawn equipment.

Through the Lawn Care for Cleaner Air Program, Louisville Metro residents can get rebates on:
