As of 2021, all seventeen Vermont electric utilities are offering incentives for residential and commercial electric lawn care equipment under Vermont’s Tier III Renewable Energy Standard. These utilities include: Vermont Electric Co-op, Washington Electric Co-op; Burlington Electric Department; the 12 member utilities of the Vermont Public Power Supply Authority; Stowe Electric Department, and Green Mountain Power .
These incentives have been key to increasing both the awareness and the use of electric lawn care equipment in Vermont. For example, during the first two years, the Burlington Electric Department issued over 240 $100 incentives for residential electric lawn mowers, making this one of the most popular incentives BED has ever offered.
