MowGreen “Zeros Out” Carbon Footprint for 2015 @ Terrapass
MowGreen bought 8 metric Tons of Carbon Offsets from Terrapass to zero out their carbon emissions as a business for 2015. We also avoided about 200 metric Tons of Carbon Emissions in 2015 by getting the gas off the grass.
MowGreen has solar panels at HQ to charge batteries which provides the power for gear that isn’t manual (like reel mowers and rakes). Sometimes the sun isn’t out but we buy 100% clean energy options for green power when we draw from the grid. However, we still use gas powered vehicles to get around our jobs, ranging from 16 MPG to 50 MPG. 5 metric tons were purchased to factor for the gas and another 3 were purchased to cover anything we may have missed. MowGreen is a carbon neutral business.

MowGreen HQ has 28 solar panels on the roof.
