Electric battery technology is advancing, enabling communities to create low noise, emissions-free parks, campuses, and other spaces. With the proper training, it is practical and cost-effective to use for a substantial amount of commercial scale work. The American Green Zone Alliance is helping communities transition to low noise, zero emissions land care. Through its AGZA Green Zone® programs, it led the cities of South Pasadena and Ojai, California to transition from gas to electric operations for all routine maintenance. AGZA also Green Zone® Certified the nation’s first golf course the Arroyo Seco par three. Work performance and ROI considerations for battery electric tools will be covered in this discussion as well as where the technology is today, and where things are heading.
