Pepco Partners with Arbor Day Foundation to Provide Free Trees to Customers
Pepco is providing 1,175 free trees to residential customers through the Energy-Saving Trees program, an initiative that helps customers conserve energy and reduce household energy bills through strategic tree planting. For the eighth year, Pepco is taking part in this important environmental program. Customers can reserve one free tree per household by visiting www.arborday.org/pepco. Customers should have their Pepco account number available when ordering the free tree.
The one-gallon, two-to four-foot potted tree will be delivered directly to customers while supplies last. Available tree species include eastern redbud, northern red oak, crape myrtle, river birch, and red maple.
"The Energy-Saving Trees program provides important environmental and cost saving benefits for our valued customers. In addition, the program isa great way to enhance the beauty of homes and neighborhoods, while also helping our customers save money on their monthly energy bills," says Donna Cooper, Pepco region president. "As these trees grow they provide shade for the home uring the hot summer months, which helps bring down air-conditioning expenses."
