Battery-Powered Blower & Equipment Rebate Program

At its December 9 meeting, the Town Council approved a Battery-Powered Blower & Equipment Rebate Program.  The program is intended to reduce the noise and other impacts of gas-powered equipment by assisting with the cost of acquiring battery-powered equipment.  In addition to the terms of the program, which are outlined below, the Council approved a supplemental appropriation of $30,000 to fund the program.

  • The Program will reimburse a household, or a landscape service provider on behalf of a household, 50% of the cost, up to a maximum rebate of $200, for the purchase of a battery-powered blower or blowers and equipment related to their operation, including batteries and chargers.
  • This is a one-time rebate that is available for the purchase of equipment between January 1, 2021 and May 31, 2021.
  • The applicant agrees to use, or require the use of, the equipment purchased through this program for landscaping activities on the applicant's property.
  • The applicant is responsible for submitting to the Town a completed application and proof of purchase of the equipment by either the household or by a landscape service provider.
  • The same receipt of purchase by a contractor may be provided by multiple households that use the same contractor.   A single contractor is eligible to receive the rebates of up to five (5) households, provided that the 50% reimbursement requirement applies.
  • The Town reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to approve or deny any request for a rebate.  The Program is subject to termination by the Town without further notice.  Rebate payments are offered on a limited basis, subject to a not-to-exceed program limit of $30,000.  Requests submitted will be processed in the order received.
  • The Town may require additional information or documentation as deemed necessary to adequately assess an application for a rebate.
