Operation Cool Shade tree sales begin September 9, 2015

Mohave Electric Cooperative, together with the City of Bullhead City, is once again sponsoring Operation Cool Shade.  Operation Cool Shade encourages the use of shade trees to help manage energy and save energy dollars by reducing air conditioning usage.

Three different types of desert-adapted shade trees are available to Cooperative members for the low price of $9 per tree.  As an added bonus, Mohave Electric will include a free energy saving, compact fluorescent bulb with each tree purchased.

1,800 trees will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. The varieties offered, Chilean Mesquite, Willow Acacia and Rosewood are recommended as being well-suited for our climate by the Master Gardeners of Bullhead City in association with University of Arizona College of Agriculture, and the horticulture professionals of Mountain States Wholesale Nursery.  When planted on the sunny side of a home, trees shade the walls, roof, and windows, and help save energy dollars by reducing some of the need for air conditioning.  Trees can also help reduce the need to add power generation resources because the energy you save doesn’t need to be produced.

Operation Cool Shade tree sales will begin September 9, at Mohave Electric’s Member Service office, 928 Hancock Road, Bullhead City.  Business hours are Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.  Members receive CFL’s at time of tree purchase.

Tree distribution will take place on Saturday, November 14, at the Bullhead City Public Works parking lot located across the street from Bullhead City Administration Complex, 1255 Marina Blvd.
