Electric lawn mower

Mow Electric works to reduce air pollution from gas-powered lawnmowers by recycling and replacing them with electric mowers. The shift from gas to electric mowers will result in a reduction in harmful emissions, like ozone, typically brought on by gas mowers.

Gas-powered lawnmowers are major pollution producers and can be harmful to our air and health. Alternatively, electric mowers are carbon neutral and give off zero emissions, resulting in cleaner air and lower ozone levels. They get the job done like a gas-powered lawn mower – and in a sustainable manner. There’s no need to fear about running out of power because an electric mower battery will run anywhere from 45 minutes to 1 hour and can last up to 5 years or 500 charging cycles. 

Ready to start mowing your way to cleaner air? The steps are easy:

  • Come to one of the three participating Westlake ACE Hardware stores on April 29 to receive your rebate. Visit for participating store locations.
  • Bring in your gas-powered mower for recycling and fill out an application. 
  • Purchase your new electric mower to receive your $50 rebate. 

Don’t wait too long, rebates will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
