Weber State University’s sustainability offices, in partnership with the Weber-Morgan and Davis County Health Departments, are hosting the Cut Pollution–Mow Electric program to promote cleaner air and healthier lives in Utah.
Did you know that running a gas-powered lawn mower for ONE hour is equal to driving a car 160 miles? The Cut Pollution-Mow Electric program helps Utahns improve local air quality by going electric.
Those who enter and are selected through an online lottery can turn in their operable gas-powered mower and receive a new Kobalt 40-volt cordless electric lawn mower with mulching capability for $100 (plus tax and a 3% credit card processing fee). Fee waivers are available for those in need.Typical retail price of the electric mower is $329.
Utahns who live in areas that regularly experience poor air quality (EPA air-quality non-attainment areas) are eligible and may participate in the program by entering the randomized online lottery. Applications will be accepted from March 1 through 31 with winner notifications going out April 6. Those selected will have three days to pay $100 (plus tax and a 3% credit card processing fee) in advance and choose an exchange time on Saturday, April 21.
The Mow Electric program has 762 mowers available. Funding was made possible with grants from the Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR), the Utah Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), Weber State University’s sustainability offices, and the Davis County and Weber-Morgan Health Departments.
