Our Solar Panels
“Solar power, wind power, the way forward is to collaborate with nature - its the only way we are going to get to the other end of the 21st century.”
"Solar power is going to be absolutely essential to meeting growing energy demands while staving off climate change.

Below photos of solar panels on our truck powering a Jackery Portable Power Station, which is used to charge all our handheld equipment including chainsaws, hedge trimmer, spring trimmer and blower. As we grow we plan to use solar panel to power all our vehicle and mowers.
Electric Equipment Benefits
~25% of the electric energy we use originates from solar panels on our truck.
~33% of the remaining energy originates from nuclear, hydroelectric or nonhydroelectric renewables (www.eia.gov)
Battery powered tools are up to 50% quieter than gas powered.
A conventional gas powered mower sends 90 pounds of the greenhouse gas CO2, and over 50 pounds of other pollutants into the air every year.
17 million gallons of gas are spilled each year refueling lawn and garden equipment - more than was spilled by the Exxon Valdez.
