CORE Update: Transitioning to an Battery-Powered Future
Late last year, the California Air Resources Board voted to update California’s Small Off-Road Engine Regulations. This effectively banned the sale of gas-powered equipment — including all lawn and landscape equipment — in 2024.
To financially help green industry professionals and other impacted industries transition to a battery-powered future, the board developed the Clean Off-Road Equipment (CORE) Voucher Incentive Project. The board invited landscape professionals to apply for $27 million in transition funding from the state.
CLCA’s Executive Director, Sandra Giarde, CAE, will update you on where the program stands, what funds remain available and who is still eligible.
