Montgomery County residents or companies that purchase electric leaf blowers are eligible for rebates of $50 or $100 through a special program that supports the County’s Climate Action Plan whose goals include reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Each individual or company is eligible for up to two rebates on either handheld or backpack electric leaf blowers.
The deadline for the program has been extended and rebates remain available. The program is co-sponsored by the County Department of Environmental Protection, Pepco and Ace Hardware.
To qualify for a rebate, a gas leaf blower must be exchanged for each rebate.
Details of the program:
- Individuals or companies must return a gas leaf blower for each rebate. Gas-powered blowers must be dropped off when purchasing the new blowers.
- Rebates are $100 each per EGO-brand Power+ LB6003 Battery Backpack Leaf Blower Kit or $50 per EGO LB6504 handheld model.
- Two rebates maximum per individual or company.
