Silent robotic lawnmowers might sound like something out of a futuristic novel, but the concept is becoming a reality for an electric cooperative in Georgia.
Jackson-based Central Georgia EMC is running 16 electric-powered, all-wheel-drive autonomous mowers for 11 hours a day Monday-Friday this summer to keep its 75-acre campus of rolling lawns, steep banks, and uneven terrain looking sharp.
These robotic lawnmowers made by Husqvarna are equipped with a GPS system the co-op can program to cover a specific territory. When their batteries run low, they park themselves on charging pads, consuming less than 1 kilowatt-hour before returning to the job.
CGEMC’s Ben Thomason, chief operating officer, and John Harkness, senior vice president of distribution services, began exploring robotic mowers last year when contractor bids for lawn maintenance were due. Read the full story here.
