Battery-powered Equipment Reduce Carbon Footprint

CGS recently purchased an array of battery powered lawn and landscape equipment to replace its existing fossil fuel based equipment including: zero-turn mowers, push mowers, string trimmers, sidewalk edgers, blowers, hedge trimmers and chainsaws. The cost of the initiative is around $492,000 with an estimated payback in maintenance and fuel savings in six to eight years. More than 80% of all routine landscaping activities on campus will be performed by battery-powered equipment.
