MidAmerican Energy Announces Trees Please! Grant Awards



February 12, 2014

Through its Trees Please! energy efficiency program, MidAmerican Energy Company is providing $219,000 to 75 cities and community organizations promoting energy efficiency throughout its Iowa service territory.

'MidAmerican Energy is pleased to offer the Trees Please! program to promote energy efficiency and environmental beautification through the planting of trees.' said Tina Yoder, energy efficiency manager, MidAmerican Energy.

Trees improve energy efficiency by serving as natural windbreaks and providing shade to homes and businesses. Trees beautify parks, roadways and other common spaces within a community. Planting trees also improves air quality and helps protect and nourish the soil.

Each city and community organization has been awarded at least $1,000 (see chart). The grants are based on the individual merits of the project, the benefit to the community, and the ability to obtain matching funds.

Communities were notified in December 2013 that they would receive a grant, and checks are being delivered to winning communities. For more information about Trees Please!, call 800-434-4017.
