Cut down on fossil fuel usage with Sun Joe’s electric mower
Amazon is offering the Sun Joe 16-inch Corded Electric Mower for $106.99 shipped. Down from a going rate of $155, today’s deal comes in at the second-best price that we’ve tracked in all of 2023. In fact, this is the lowest price we’ve seen since February. Not everybody has a large yard, and for those who have smaller lawns, battery-powered or gas mowers might be overkill (or not eco-friendly).
Well, Sun Joe’s electric mower plugs into a wall outlet through an extension cord and helps to keep your fossil fuel usage at bay. There’s a detachable grass catcher for those who want to compost their clippings and the mower features six height positions, ranging from 1.2 to 3.3 inches. The 12A motor powers a 15-inch wide cutting blade which makes short work of taking care of lawn chores. Plus, when you’re done, it’s easy to store this mower as it’s lightweight at under 32 pounds. So, if you’re tired of buying gas for your mower, and don’t want to deal with charging batteries, then today’s deal is a solid choice. Just be sure to pick up an extension cord so you can plug in and get mowing as soon as it arrives.
Get ready for summer camping trips
The official ALLPOWERS Amazon storefront is offering its 60W Foldable Portable Solar Panel for $69.99 shipped once you clip the on-page coupon. Today’s deal comes in at 30% below the $100 normal going rate and also marks a new all-time low that we’ve tracked here. Ready to help power your campsite, this portable solar panel outputs up to 60W of 12V electricity to connected DC batteries, but it also has two USB ports. Each port is capable of delivering 2.4A to connected devices which means you can use the solar panel to charge a phone, tablet, or portable Bluetooth speaker while completely off-grid.
When not being used, the solar panel folds up and is quite compact at 21 by 14 by 0.8 inches and weighs just 4.5 pounds. That makes ALLPOWERS’ solar panel super easy to bring to any campsite or to keep in an emergency kit. Whenever you need it, the solar panel simply unfolds and leverages the power of the sun to recharge devices or portable batteries. Plus, it’s IP66 waterproof so you can leave it out in the rain and not worry about the panel getting damaged.
Anker’s PowerHouse power stations hit best prices of the year from $187 (Reg. $250+)
Anker’s official Amazon storefront is now discounting a pair of its popular portable power stations. Headlining the savings this time around, the PowerHouse 256Wh is now down to $186.99 shipped. Normally fetching $250, you’re looking at a match of the 2023 low at 25% off. This is the first discount we’ve seen in over 2 months since our previous mention back in March, and is the lowest we’ve seen since last fall. Packing all of Anker’s usual portable power station perks into a redesigned package, this more recent offering arrives with an internal 256Wh battery. That pairs with a multitude of ports for refueling your everyday carry like two AC outlets, a 60W USB-C PD port, dual USB-A slots, and a car socket, all of which share 200W of power between them. An integrated LED light on the front and carrying handle make it an even better companion for camping, or just having on-hand for power outages at home.
Those who need an even more capable centerpiece to their campsite or tailgate will also find that Amazon is marking down Anker’s 757 PowerHouse 1229Wh at $949.99 after the on-page coupon has been clipped. Originally selling for $1,400, this model has more regularly been selling for $1,100 as of late. Today’s offer now enters with $150 in savings attached to beat our previous mention by $30 and deliver the best price of the year.
Delivering one of its most capable portable power station yet, this 757 model just launched earlier in the spring with the ability to dish out 1,500W of power over an array of ports for keeping all of the gear at the campsite, tailgate, or just around the house in a power outage. Alongside six AC outlets, there’s also a pair of 100W USB-C ports, four USB-A slots, and a typical car jack to complement the onboard display. We breakdown the experience a bit further in our launch coverage.

The first US-built offshore wind substation is sailing to New York
The first US-built offshore wind substation is complete and headed to South Fork Wind – a major milestone for the US offshore wind industry.
Offshore substations collect and stabilize power that the wind turbines generate, preparing it for transmission to shore. South Fork Wind’s 1,500-ton, 60-foot-tall substation was designed and engineered in Kansas, and built near Corpus Christi by Kiewit Offshore Services, the largest offshore fabricator in the US.
The first US-built offshore wind substation left Kiewit’s factory on a ship late last week. It’s going to cross the Gulf of Mexico and then sail up the East Coast for installation off Long Island in a few weeks.
David Hardy, group EVP and CEO Americas at Ørsted, said:
The completion of South Fork Wind’s offshore wind substation is yet another first for this groundbreaking project and moves us one step closer to the project’s first ‘steel in the water.’
South Fork, which is being jointly developed by Danish wind giant Ørsted and energy provider Eversource, is expected to be operational by 2023, when it will become the first completed utility-scale offshore wind farm in US federal waters.
Cable laying is currently under way, and the installation of monopile foundations will begin in coming weeks.
The 132 megawatt (MW), 12-turbine project will produce enough clean energy to power 70,000 homes in New York.

ZParq completes $2.7M seed round to bring ultracompact electric marine motors to market
Swedish marine propulsion startup ZParq announced it has successfully completed a seed round led by cleantech investors, totaling 2.5 million euros ($2.68M). With the fresh funding, ZParq looks to bring its compact electric marine motors, powertrains, and other adjacent technologies to market to help decarbonize the segment.
ZParq is a young startup founded in Sweden in 2020, which, according to the company, was founded to challenge the limits of marine propulsion by providing the most compact and scalable systems for propeller-driven watercraft. Furthermore, the startup is striving to deliver products that are designed to be sustainable over the entire value chain. Per the company site:
Our founding team covers the span of electromechanical design, hydrodynamics, electronics and product design. We’ve been developing our technology to fill the gap where compact submersible electric propulsion systems are needed for high performance applications.
As you’ll see below, ZParq has already developed and sleek and compact portfolio of marine technologies, including electric motors, battery packs, inverters, levers, and even a steering joystick. Early on, ZParq joined the portfolio of EIT InnoEnergy – the largest impact cleantech investor in Europe, who was the startup’s first institutional investor.
Now, EIT InnoEnergy, along with a couple of other capital venture funds, have opened up their checkbooks to help get ZParq’s electric marine motors out to market and beyond.
ZParq’s electric marine motors are sustainable end-to-end
The startup recently shared details of its successful seed round coled by Santander (via the Santander InnoEnergy Climate Fund) and Almi Invest GreenTech. EIT InnoEnergy also participated once again.
Each of these funds is focused around investments in early-stage companies developing new technologies to support a circular economy and combat climate change. Clearly, they see potential in ZParq – which is touting all-electric marine motors that are significantly smaller and more efficient compared to everything else on the current market.
ZParq states the motor’s light design reduces raw material and CO2 footprint by more than 50% in the production phase, and the circular design approach of its products helps reduce their environmental impact and climate footprint throughout their entire life cycle. ZParq CEO Jonas Genchel spoke to the successful seed round and the venture capitalists that have shown their support:
We are very happy to get Santander and Almi Invest GreenTech as new investors, they will provide us with the support required to finalize development of our first products and enable shipment to our customers already this year. Our scalable and modular technology has generated an overwhelming interest from boat manufacturers and ship builders globally, and we have customers within the complete range from small leisure boats to commercial vessels waiting for our powertrains. The company is currently in pilot phase with several OEMs and boat builders who are testing its 10kW and 50kW motors. It aims to have several units operating in water by this summer
It appears ZParq already has plenty of exciting electric marine technology in the works, including more powerful motors, so we will be sure to track its progress as these products approach market launch. A fresh 2.5 million euros should certainly help it continue to innovate and hopefully find success. More to come.
