Electric yard equipment, snow blowers included, become more popular each year – but do they live up to the hype? Can an electric snow blower really stand up to Minnesota's extreme winters?
For most residential uses, electric snow blowers are actually a superior and more economical choice than gasoline-powered ones. Battery technology has advanced dramatically in the past decade and due to this, we’re seeing more powerful electric cars and more capable electric yard equipment and snow blowers.
Join Fresh Energy, Shift2Electric, and American Lung Association for a free educational workshop that’s unaffiliated with any specific brands. We’ll take a look "under the hood" at snow blower models from various manufacturers, have a discussion about the health and climate impacts of gasoline-powered yard equipment, and review the steps participants can take to switch to electric yard care. Participants will leave the meeting equipped to make an informed decision about their next snow blower purchase with a comprehensive comparison list of all makes and models available on the market.
