How to unlock savings with Colorado’s new electric lawn mower tax credit

All the info you need about rebates, tax credits and other discounts on electric lawn equipment in Colorado

Staff | Used by permission

Thanks to a new law that went into effect on Jan. 1, 2024, Coloradans can save money and cut air pollution at the same time by enjoying a 30% discount on electric lawn mowers, leaf blowers, trimmers and snow blowers at participating retailers statewide.

Part of a broader effort to cut down the high amount of pollution and noise generated by gas-powered lawn and garden equipment, the new law is designed to make it as easy as possible for consumers to enjoy the discount: no rebate paperwork to fill out, no tax credit to file. This is because the tax credit goes to participating retailers, in exchange for offering a 30% discount to their customers.

Where can I get the discount on electric lawn equipment?

The key to receiving the new tax credit discount on cleaner, quieter electric lawn mowers, leaf blowers, trimmers and other handheld lawn and garden tools – plus snow blowers – is to go to a participating retailer. We’ve surveyed local retailers to help take some of the guesswork out of this for you. As we hear back from more companies, we will add their information here, so be sure to check back.
