COLLEGE STATION (September 24, 2013)--A new online tool could help Texas homeowners save money and energy based on where they plant trees, Texas A&M Forest Service officials said Tuesday in College Station.
The Energy Saving Trees program has a web-based mapping tool that lets homeowners compare energy savings based on amount of shade from different trees, they said.
Coordinator Gretchen Riley says trees are a simple and simple and effective way to reduce heat in and around homes.
Oncor and CenterPoint Energy have joined the Arbor Day Foundation in support of the Energy Saving Trees program and will offer as many as three trees per homeowner in the program for planting in certain areas to provide optimal energy savings.
