Free Trees to Cool the Breeze
Jun 28, 2013 07:18PM
Salt River Project (SRP) is offering free trees to customers to help beat the heat with more shade and reduce electrical usage. Planting desert-adapted shade trees can save up to $50 on a typical energy bill annually. The SRP Shade Tree Program enables customers to reduce cooling costs, improve air quality and lower the Valley's heat effect without using a lot of water with up to two free approximately four-to-six-foot saplings for Valley homes.
SRP customers must register and attend a workshop to be eligible for the SRP Shade Tree Program and learn more about the trees and the best methods for planting and caring for them. Two workshops will be conducted by the Valley Permaculture Alliance at 8 and 10 a.m., July 27, at Chandler-Gilbert Community College Williams Campus.
Location: 7360 E. Tahoe Ave., Mesa. For more information and registration, visit Srpnet.com.
