Participating homes have saved up to 20% on their power bills!

Trees cool the air naturally from the effects of water evaporating from leaves and from direct shade. Moisture combined with shade results in cooler air. Homes shaded by trees need less energy for cooling, which in turn means lower monthly utility bills in the summer and a reduced need for utilities to increase power generation to meet peak load demand.
Four trees planted around each home could save up to 30% on summer cooling costs. 1 Million Trees = $10 Million in Annual Energy Saving
