Solar Powered Mowers Part Of Indy Parks Emissions Reduction Plan

By Evan Robbins:


Indianapolis unveiled two solar powered lawnmowers as part of Mayor Joe Hogsett’s plan to achieve carbon neutrality by the year 2050.

Hogsett says the new mowers are one of many tools the city will use to lower emissions on “Knozone Action Days,” when air quality is especially bad.

“We will use more electric vehicles and tools like our new Mean Green electric mowers,” Hogsett says. “These battery-powered mowers operate with zero emissions, use solar energy, and run much quieter than their fossil-fueled counterparts.”
