AGZA spent another energetic and informative day at University of California Irvine, this time as part of the UCI Housing Department Electric Equipment Open House.
AGZA was honored to be invited to showcase at the University of California Irvine’s inspirational Sustainability Fair. UCI is an ambitious sustainability leader in the academic space, and are moving towards an all-electric zero-emission grounds maintenance program. If UCI engages AGZA for Certification and Accreditation — they would claim the title of the Nation’s First University AGZA Green Zone®!
AGZA and East Coast partner Quiet Communities introduce commercial-grade electric equipment from Mean Green and EGO to the Town of Lexington, MA, Dept of Parks and Rec, followed by an in-depth presentation on the benefits of AGZA Green Zone® Certification and AGZA Service Professional Accreditation.
In anticipation of the first annual “California Clean Air Day”, the Coalition for Clean Air hosted a media event to announce their programs and introduce their “Clean Air Pledge”. AGZA was honored to be invited to represent the transition to electric lawn & garden equipment and brought sample EGO 56V lithium-battery electric equipment to showcase.
AGZA partners with a forward-thinking Woodland Hills resident to offer quiet, zero-emission battery-electric equipment for all the nieghborhood lawn crews to try out and to share.
AGZA spent a morning with the City of Santa Monica’s grounds crew, putting Mean Green’s 60” electric ZTR through a rigorous testing.
AGZA was honored to spend the morning with other civic entrepreneurs and thought leaders at City Impact Lab's excellent monthly Social Impact Breakfast.
The South Coast AQMD honors the City of South Pasadena for their AGZA Green Zone City Certification.
Noisy, fossil-fuel-powered engines are some of the most polluting and least regulated machinery still allowed in modern society. And yet, the workers make no connection between the airborne pollutants from their own gas tools and the life-threatening effects they’re experiencing. Neither does the author. In fact, the vomiting and seizures mentioned in the opening paragraph are almost certainly the results of breathing high volumes of gas emissions, in addition to heat stress, rather than from just climate-change-increased heat alone.
Friday July 21st will go down in history as the beginning of the end of gas in the golf industry. Today's certification of the first-in-the-nation AGZA Green Zone® Golf Course at Arroyo Seco Golf Course in South Pasadena, CA proves battery tools can replace gas machinery for almost all routine grounds maintenance.
