Southern California’s Gas-for-Electric Equipment Exchange Program

In Southern California, residents of Antelope Valley can now exchange certain gas-powered lawn equipment for vouchers toward battery electric EGO brand equipment through the end of 2021.

The Winter Lawn & Garden Equipment Exchange is a result of a partnership between the Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District (AVAQMD), the City of Lancaster, the City of Palmdale and Lowe’s. AVAQMD reports that it is supporting the program through grant incentive funding.

To participate, Antelope Valley residents must:

  • First make an appointment by calling the AVAQMD office to set up a time to drop off existing equipment.
  • Take their working gas-powered lawnmower, leaf blower, trimmer, hedger or chainsaw to Coast Auto Salvage in Lancaster.
  • For each piece of equipment surrendered, participants will receive a voucher for a battery-powered EGO brand equivalent in exchange for releasing their equipment to the salvage yard.
  • Recipients then take the voucher to any Antelope Valley Lowe’s store to use for the purchase of EGO brand equipment.

The Lowe’s equipment vouchers provide: $275 off specific models of EGO brand battery-powered lawnmowers, and $170 off specific models of EGO brand handheld outdoor power equipment.
