Now Is the Time to Switch to Electric
More than ever before, individuals and institutions are demanding environmentally friendly options for the services they utilize. But the lawn care industry still remains heavily reliant on gas-powered equipment, which is being met with consumer unrest and complaints. Many communities are currently legislating restrictions on the pollution and noise creating equipment, and some states are even considering statewide bans. Due to the negative environmental impact, unpleasant noise, and health risk to workers, gas-powered equipment is well on its way out.
So what does this mean for companies and institutions that still use gas-powered equipment?
It means that now is the best time to make the switch to using cleaner, quieter, safer electric-powered lawn care equipment. But this transition can be a daunting one due to the high initial cost, and having to learn how to operate and train workers to use completely new equipment.
That’s why The American Green Zone Alliance created our
AGZA Service Pro Certification Course.
This course is designed to provide all the education and training land care professionals need to successfully transition to electric equipment. You’ll be able to satisfy your customers while eliminating costly fuel and maintenance expenses to offset the cost of your new equipment.
