AB 118 Lawn and Garden Equipment Replacement Project

This page last reviewed August 8, 2012.

The purpose of the Air Quality Improvement Program (AQIP) Lawn and Garden Equipment Replacement (LGER) Project was to encourage further development and deployment of cordless zero-emission lawn and garden equipment.  The availability of incentive funding helped bring a variety of residential and commercial cordless zero-emission equipment to the market.  The LGER Project allowed up to $250 per voucher or rebate for each cordless zero-emission lawn mower.  The project was administered and implemented through a partnership between ARB and local air districts designated as non-attainment of the federal 8-hour ozone standard.

To date, over 12,403 residential lawn mower replacements have been replaced.  AQIP LGER Project funds expanded local air district programs by requiring districts to provide match funding, which resulted in the replacement of an additional 8,645 lawn mowers.  For future years, ARB staff has shifted cordless zero-emission residential lawn mower replacement projects from AQIP to the Carl Moyer Program in part based on the success of the AQIP LGER Project.  Because this equipment is now a Moyer-eligible category, no additional AQIP funding will be provided for cordless zero-emission residential lawn mowers.  

For more information regarding the AQIP LGER Project, see the FY 2012-13 Funding Plan or contact Grace Garcia of ARB at tel. (916) 323-2781.
