Rocky Mountain Power Teams up With UCAIR and DEQ to Clear the Air With Snow Blower Exchange Program

October 02, 2018


SALT LAKE CITY — Representatives from Rocky Mountain Power, the Utah Clean Air Partnership (UCAIR), and the Utah Division of Environmental Quality (DEQ) along with Utah Lt. Governor Spencer Cox kicked off an innovative partnership Tuesday to offer new electric snow blowers in exchange for old gas-powered blowers.

Running a gas-powered snow blower for an hour emits the pollution equivalent to driving a brand new car for 339 miles, according to research from Utah DEQ. With the prospect of winter inversions around the corner, now is the time to upgrade your winter snow machines to clean electric power.

“Every snowstorm gives us a fresh start with clean air — that we immediately start polluting by turning on our gas-powered snow blowers,” said Thom Carter, UCAIR executive director. “Plan to make a change this year and show you care. Exchange your air-polluting blower and register for a clean electric snow blower that will cost you pennies on the dollar. It’s a practical solution that adds up to big savings.”

Residents of Utah in Cache, Box Elder, Weber, Davis, Salt Lake, Utah, Tooele, Duchesne and Uintah Counties can register at to be randomly selected to receive deep discounts on a cleaner, quieter, more air-friendly snow blower. The snow blower being offered is a $299 battery powered 80-volt Greenworks 20” snow blower. Those who trade-in their old snow blower will pay $69* with the exchange, and those without a trade in will pay $169*.
* Plus taxes and fees
