Not only are gas-powered mowers noisy, they’re polluting. According to peoplepoweredmachines.com:
Americans use about 800 million gallons of gas each year to mow their lawns; garden equipment engines emit high levels of carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds and nitrogen oxides, producing up to 5% of the nation’s air pollution; and a traditional gas powered lawn mower produces as much air pollution as 43 new cars each being driven 12,000 miles.
It’s amazing that something like changing the kind of energy a lawnmower uses can have such a big postive impact on the environment. Stats for Solar-Powered Lawnmowers Trending: Older & Mild
