Can a tree help you save money? YES!
Something as simple as planting a tree can help you save on your monthly electric costs. Shade trees cool the outer wall temperature of your home by as much as 20 degrees, meaning your air conditioner won't have to work as hard to keep your home cool. And that means a lower summer electric bill.
You can purchase up to 3 low-cost, low-water use trees through Trico’s Operation Cool Shade (OCS) Program. Trees cost $15, will be at least 3 feet tall and are delivered directly to your home by Trees for Tucson (some restrictions apply). Tree varieties are available on a first-come, first-served basis. See below for more information on the trees. Click here for Frequently Asked Questions.
