The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has initiated a year-round Residential Electric Lawn Mower Rebate program. Consumers can receive rebates of $150, $200, or $250 depending on the cost of their new electric mower. There is an on-line application and the electric mowers can be purchased at retail stores or on-line. The County of LA Department of Public Works has included this information in their Smart Garden Program newsletter.
Visit SCAQMD’s website to review the application and see program updates.
SCAQMD has also begun a second program: in its Residential Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Incentive Program, eligible applicants can receive up to $250 to buy-down the cost of a residential charger. These Level 2 residential chargers typically range from $400-$800. There is an additional incentive of up to $250 available for low-income residents.
The application and program updates for this program can be viewed on SCAQMD’s website.
