For Immediate Release
Fourth Year of Partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation
MAYS LANDING, N.J. - Atlantic City Electric is providing 1,500 free trees to customers through the Energy-Saving Trees program. It's the fourth year of the Atlantic City Electric-Arbor Day Foundation partnership that provides two trees per household while supplies last. This year, the free trees are more developed as they're lightly branched and 2 to 4 feet in height. The Energy-Saving Trees program helps customers conserve energy and reduces household electricity bills through strategic tree planting. Atlantic City Electric customers can reserve up to two free trees by visiting www.arborday.org/ace. The types of trees offered are American beech, bald cypress, river birch, sugar maple and white dogwood, which will be delivered directly to the customer at an ideal time for planting.
"Our Energy-Saving Trees program is another way that Atlantic City Electric is committed to helping our customers continue to conserve energy as well as improve the environment," said Vince Maione, Atlantic City Electric region president. "We are pleased to again partner with the Arbor Day Foundation to provide free trees to our customers. This program not only benefits the environment, but can also help customers save money on their energy bills."
An online tool can help Atlantic City Electric customers find the most strategic location for planting and estimate the annual savings that will result from the tree. The Energy-Saving Trees online tool was created by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Davey Institute, a division of the Davey Tree Expert Co., and uses peer-reviewed scientific research from the USDA Forest Service's i-Tree Software to calculate estimated benefits. This tool requires an up-to-date internet browser.
