Kiwifruit Orchard Reaps The Benefits of Zero Fuel Costs

Sam With His Fully Electric Mean Green CXR-60

Solar panels charge up batteries during the day while Sam is mowing. He then plugs the mower into the charger at night ready for the next day’s mowing. 
So, not only is the mower emissions free with no nasty fumes, quiet to operate with negligible maintenance requirements and comfortable to drive because of lower vibration levels – Sam is saving himself boatloads of cash: depending on total operating hours, this can add up to between $10~$14,000 per year.
Moreover, he uses the mower as a portable power source for his power tools by simply attaching a 3.0 k/Wh inverter.
