Eco-Answers: Going Electric in the Landscape – Battery Powered Options

Wed, June 22, 2022 @ 6:30 pm EDT - 7:30 pm EDT

Special ELA Members Only Event

Join ELA and Matt Benzie as we take a look at Battery-Powered Landscape Equipment.

There are now practical alternatives on the market to gas-powered landscape maintenance equipment (GLMEs). Let’s talk about why they are worth a try and how to choose your best option. Join us as we talk with Matt Benzie, President and Owner of Indigenous Ingenuities, an environmental landscape design, build and management company located in Doylestown, PA that exclusively uses battery-powered equipment. During this 45-minute live Zoom Q&A, Matt will provide a quick overview of why we should avoid GLMEs and his reasons for making the commitment to battery-powered equipment. Then he will jump right into your questions for the bulk of this session.

Some topics that Matt can address are:

  • Is it practical to use battery-powered equipment?
  • What brands are the best for commercial use?
  • Is electric equipment more expensive? How do you quantify the value to your customers?
  • And more…

You can email questions in advance to help guide Matt’s remarks. Send to If you don’t submit questions in advance, no problem, we will also be taking questions throughout the event. When you register for Eco-Answers with the ELA Eco-Pros, you will receive your Zoom Webinar link in a separate email.
