Go Green, Save Green

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.

If you're a non-profit organization in Louisville/Jefferson County, you can apply to be awarded a new set of electric lawn equipment through our Lawn Care for Cleaner Air Community Equipment Grant Program. The next application window is expected to open in the fall.

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

residential equipment 128 x 128

(1/3 acre or less)


Professional Equipment 128 x 128

As you can see, the clean-air savings are substantial:
