Energy-Saving Trees | OEC News

OEC named 2023 Tree Line USA Utility by Arbor Day Foundation for the 17th year in a row

For the sixth year in a row, OEC is partnering with the Arbor Day Foundation to give free trees to member-consumers.

“Members who take advantage of energy efficiency measures in the months leading up to summer can maximize their savings,” said Daniel Lofland, energy efficiency solutions specialist. “We are proud to offer the Energy-Saving Trees program free of charge to our members.”

Energy-Saving Trees is a research-based, easy-to-use online mapping tool that takes the guesswork out of tree planting. By entering simple information about your home and yard, the tool calculates where to specifically and strategically plant trees for the greatest energy- and money-saving benefits.

Planting the right tree in the right place is key to maximizing the energy-savingbenefits that trees provide. When planted properly, a single tree can save a homeowner up to 20 percent on energy costs.

Members who are interested may begin claiming their one free tree on April 5 and must be able to pick it up in Norman on April 22 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.

  • A limited number of trees will be available. Limit one per membership. Must be able to pick up your tree at 480 24th Avenue NW in Norman on April 22 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
