OPERATION COOL SHADE
Save Energy Dollars with Cool Shade
Operation Cool Shade will return in September as a part of Mohave Electric’s Commitment to Community together with the City of Bullhead City. It’s a way to help members manage their energy use and reduce costs.
Mohave Electric will offer three different types of desert-adapted shade trees to cooperative members for the low price of $8 per tree. 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 also help control greenhouse effect, erosion, and reduce the effects of pollution.
Trees will be available for purchase on a first-come, first-served basis. The varieties offered, Chilean Mesquite, Willow Acacia and Rosewood are all suited for our local climate. Information about tree planting and care will also be provided.
As an added bonus, Mohave Electric will include a free energy saving, compact fluorescent bulb with each tree purchased (limit of 3 trees and 3 CFL’s per member). CFLs consume 70% less energy and last up to 10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.
The Operation Cool Shade tree sale dates are Sept. 11th through Sept.24th at Mohave Electric’s Customer Service at 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 2nd, at the Bullhead City Public Works parking lot located across the street from Bullhead City Administration Complex, 1255 Marina Blvd.
