Greenworks Commercial Helps Landscape Businesses Transition to Clean Alternatives

MOORESVILLE, NC – In light of the recent state law signed into effect by California Governor Newsom banning the sale of gas-powered outdoor power equipment, Greenworks Commercial, the leading provider of battery-operated outdoor power equipment, is helping landscape businesses transition to clean alternatives.

Greenworks Commercial is the only brand with a full line of commercial-grade, 100% battery-powered outdoor power equipment that can replace every gas-powered tool landscapers need. Not only does it have a depth of product offerings, but Greenworks Commercial lithium-ion-powered equipment provides more user ride comfort and control combined with the industry’s best cutting-edge technology. Greenworks products have the power, performance and runtime demanded of gas-powered tools without the noise, hassle or harmful emissions.

“With the new law banning gas sales starting in 2024, it’s important for landscapers to be ahead of the curve,” said Tony Marchese, Greenworks Commercial Vice President of Sales and Operations. “Taking advantage of California’s $30 million incentive fund, we can help commercial landscapers transition easily and cost effectively. We believe that within five years every commercial user can be a zero-emissions landscaper.”

Several recent studies have concluded gas-powered equipment with small off-road engines produces a similar amount of smog-causing pollution as passenger cars, which is one reason law makers are curbing emissions. A study from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) found using a gas-powered leaf blower for one hour causes the same amount of pollution to be emitted as a 2017 Toyota Camry driving 1,100 miles, and running a gas lawnmower for one hour is the equivalent of driving 300 miles.

The new law is also motivated by a concern for landscape workers’ health, as gas-powered small engines have been proven to increase the risk of asthma and other health concerns.

100% of Greenworks Commercial tools have zero emissions and zero exhaust, recyclable batteries and are extremely quiet for reduced noise pollution. Its products are the safest and most technologically advanced tools available in the outdoor power equipment industry, and its team is well equipped to help landscape professionals transition from gas-powered equipment to battery.
