Seems to apply only to Duke Energy customers, but if you're in those areas…here is the link:
Don't throw away your batteries, Best Buy recycles them for free (container at the entrance at most places). Also, Lowe's hardware store recycles rechargeable batteries, CFLs, plastic bags and plastic plant pots (bins near customer service and exits at most places).
Yes, I realize that the Husqvarna Solar Hybrid Automated Mower is $3000.00, but I wanted everyone to put it on their list of things to buy when they win the lottery.
It will text message you if something disturbs it while it’s mowing, has an anti-theft alarm, no emissions, PIN lock code, battery-operated (but solar panel is an extra energy source on sunny days and can provide an extra oomph), weather-proof, low noise, timer, and much more.
My prediction is that this will become better and more affordable over time. It only makes sense. I wonder what the stats would be if every house replaced their gas/oil mower with this?
Thanks, Jessica, for finding this.
