Electric Forklifts

Switching to an electric forklift can significantly reduce your greenhouse gas emissions. Since Burlington runs on 100% renewably-sourced energy, there is an environmental benefit to an electric forklift without any impact to your operation.
Burlington Electric Department wants to help you make the switch. Lithium-ion battery-powered forklifts are eligible for a $6,000 rebate. Lead-acid battery-powered forklifts can get $4,000 back.
