Plant Green to Save Green with PECO's New Energy-Saving Trees Program
More than 1,000 free trees available for PECO customers



April 25, 2014

PECO, through a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation, is providing more than 1,000 free trees to customers to help save energy and reduce energy bills. Through the Energy-Saving Trees program, free trees will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to PECO customers to plant them in safe, energy-saving locations.

When planted in the right place, trees can help reduce energy use through summer shading and slowing cold winter winds. Once trees are fully grown, they have the potential to lower energy bills by up to 15 to 30 percent. In addition, trees can increase property value, reduce carbon footprint, improve air quality and more effectively catch storm water runoff.

To reserve a free tree, customers can visit the Arbor Day Foundation’s easy-to-use, interactive online mapping tool at www.arborday.com/peco. The website also helps customers determine how to plant the right tree in the right place to save energy. Once customers confirm their reservation, a 3-foot tall, lightly branched tree seedling will be shipped to their home within two to four weeks from a local Arbor Day Foundation nursery.

Customers are reminded to dial 811 at least three days before digging to ensure the area is safe for planting.
