The California South Coast Air Quality Management District (AQMD) began its ninth year of offering electric lawn mowers to consumers who trade in a gas lawn mower. The program will make 6600 electric mowers available this year. Consumers pay $100 to $230, depending on which of the five electric mower models they choose.

By the time the 2011 program ends AQMD will have taken more than 44,400 gasoline-powered lawn mowers out of use in Southern California, which it estimated will remove almost 94 tons of volatile organic compound emissions from air in the region.

By turning in their gas-powered mower, residents can choose from Neuton Power Equipment (Vergennes, VT, U.S.) or Black & Decker brand mowers from Stanley Black & Decker, Inc. (New Britain, CT, U.S.) Models include:

• Neuton CE 5.4, a 24V model with a 14-inch cutting width, available through the AQMD program for $100 (retail price is $399)
• Neuton CE 6.4, a 36V model with a 19-inch cutting width, available for $160 (retail price is $499)
• Black & Decker CMM1200, a 24V model with a 19-inch cutting width, available for $100 (retail price is $349)
• Black & Decker CM 1936, a 36V model with a 19-inch cutting width, available for $160 (retail price is $449)
• Black & Decker SPCM 1936, a 36V self-propelled model with a 19-inch cutting width, available for $230 (retail price is $699)

AQMD is hosting eight mower exchange events between May 7 and July 23, 2011, across it four-county jurisdiction in Southern California. This year it added the Go Green! Lawn and Garden Expo, held during each exchange starting May 14 to showcase eco-friendly lawn-care equipment and related green products and services available that save energy, conserve water, and help consumers maintain their landscaping.

AQMD is the air pollution control agency for Orange County, California, and for major portions of Los Angeles, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties.
