Eco-Friendly Rental Aerial Lifts for Sustainable Construction

Eco-Friendly Rental Aerial Lifts for Sustainable Construction

The construction and buildings sector is a large source of pollution, accounting for roughly 37% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions worldwide. To combat this and meet changing standards and regulations, construction companies are taking steps to become more environmentally friendly. Using green equipment, like electric aerial lifts, can help in achieving this goal.

The Growing Need for Green Construction

Sustainable construction is a growing trend in the industry. In 2021, the U.S. green building market reached an all-time high of over $83 billion. As more people become aware of the climate crisis, demand is sure to rise even more.

Adopting sustainable construction practices can help businesses reduce their environmental impact. One example includes using electric equipment. Most heavy equipment runs on either diesel or natural gas, which releases carbon emissions into the atmosphere. Electric equipment is a green alternative that does not produce carbon emissions, which can improve your company's sustainability.

If you're considering switching to eco-friendly equipment but you need confirmation that a specific model will work for your application, the experts at The Cat® Rental Store dealerships can help you.

How Eco-Friendly Aerial Lifts Change the Game

Electric aerial lifts are significantly more sustainable than traditional models that use diesel or natural gas-powered engines. Because they don't burn fuel, they don't produce local emissions, which reduces your environmental impact. The lack of emissions also makes them suitable for applications where air quality is a critical concern, like indoor renovations.

Electric vs. Engine-Powered Aerial Lifts 

Electric lifts run on rechargeable batteries rather than combustible engine fuel, which means they produce significantly fewer emissions. The absence of an engine also means electric lifts are quiet enough for use indoors or in heavily populated areas.

Renting vs. Buying Electric Aerial Lifts

For most companies, cost is a significant factor in deciding whether to rent or buy. If you know you'll only need the lift for a short time, renting is the smarter choice. Rental fees are lower than the upfront investment of buying equipment, especially when you consider how long it will sit idle. 

Renting also lets you try new equipment before you take the plunge. So if you know you need a new lift and you have one in mind, you can rent it to see how it performs under typical job site conditions.
