Plant a Tree, Save a buck!

rebates for planting trees

Why plant trees? Trees planted around a home can reduce cooling costs by as much as 20%. In addition to saving energy, here are some other benefits trees offer:

• Clean the air

• Reduce noise

• Provide privacy

• Prevent soil erosion

• Beautify the environment

JouleFool found one utility, Riverside Public Utilities in Riverside, CA, gives rebates of up to $25 per shade tree planted.  Just another way that you can reduce energy and save money!

Happy Savings,

JouleFool
