AGZA and Torrance-based Evergreene Lawn Care are a one-two punch at the Long Beach EV event.

AGZA + EVERGREENE SHOWCASE E-LAWNCARE TO EV ENTHUSIASTS

AGZA is grateful to our good friends at Evergreene Lawn Care for partnering with us again.

These guys are the real deal: AGZA Certified Service Providers who have built their family-run commercial lawn care business on an all-electric platform. Evergreene's mission is holistic, which means they not only run the best zero-emission electric machinery from Mean Green Machines Greenworks, and Stihl, but they also use organic fertilizers and are pioneers of the water-saving soil amendment CoolTerra™ from CoolPlanet. 

If you've been following our blog you'll remember Evergreene as our strategic partner in creating the nation's first-ever AGZA Green Zone Sports Complex, the beautiful gas-free Torrance American Baseball Fields.

We hope the renovations in development at Houghton Park are  an opportunity for AGZA and Evergreene to partner on a whole new project. Stay tuned ...

GABRIELLE WEEKS HOSTS TRUE GREEN LEADERS

Gabrielle Weeks, Chair of the Long Beach Sierra Club, veteran green advocate, and indefatigable event organizer, pulled out all the stops to launch this first Long Beach Drive Electric Celebration at Houghton Park. We expect this event will be an annual event and prove to be an historic tipping point toward a fossil-free community.

Ms. Weeks marshaled together an impressive lineup of local politicians who energized the crowd with stories of their green passion and proactive environmental voting record.

  • REPRESENTATIVE ALAN LOWENTHAL (website and Facebookshared stories from his long history of green advocacy, including his role in the milestone EV documentary, "Who Killed The Electric Car?"
  • CONGRESSWOMAN JANICE HAHN (website and Facebookarrived in her Nissan Leaf and talked enthusiastically about the full-sized all-electric prototype city bus by BYD coming online in 2016.
  • LONG BEACH COUNCILMEMBER REX RICHARDSON (website and Facebook) proudly shared his enthusiasm for the $10 - $15 Million renovation in development for Houghton Park's Community Center.

It was glorious! A parking lot filled with a wide variety of electric vehicles.

A (PARKING) LOT OF EV

We have seen the future and it is glorious. A parking lot completely filled exclusively with electric vehicles is one of the most beautiful things we've ever seen.

Since electric lawn-and-garden equipment manufacturers are paralleling developments in the electric auto industry, all the high-end R&D, tech, and batteries in the auto business translate relatively quickly into electric tools like mowers, blowers, hedgers and edgers. Both platforms leverage all the advantages of the latest advances in Lithium-ion battery chemistries, and we expect Tesla's new Lithium-ion Gigafactory in Nevada, and the commercial release of their Powerwall backup storage systems will raise the bar for electric lawn tools in short order.

What an exciting time we live in!
