Senate Bill 170 (SB170) appropriated $30 million in vouchers to fund zero-emission small off-road equipment for professional landscaping services operated by small businesses or sole proprietors.
Beginning in Fall 2022, voucher funds will provide a point-of-sale discount to help offset the incremental cost of zero-emission technology. By deploying zero-emission professional landscape service equipment across California, industry workers and communities experience the benefits of reduced emissions, quieter operations, and improved public health.
The types of zero-emission professional landscaping service equipment expected to be eligible for CORE vouchers include:
- Leaf blowers and vacuums
- String trimmers
- Walk-behind mowers
- Ride-on mowers
Stakeholders interested in CORE zero-emission landscaping equipment incentives are encouraged to attend upcoming public workgroup meetings. Workgroups will take place leading up to our fall opening. To receive information about registering for these events, along with additional CORE updates, email [email protected] with a request to sign up for the listserv.
