As part of the campaign to improve the tree canopy around the city, the Parks and Recreation Department is partnering with CPS Energy, San Antonio Water System and the Texas Forest Service to implement a Tree Rebate for Energy Savings Program for both commercial and residential customers.
Through the program, residents are able to purchase up to three trees and receive a rebate from CPS of $50 per tree.
To qualify, residents must be CPS Energy customers and purchase an eligible tree between Oct. 1, 2012 and April 30, 2013. Applications are due by June 30, 2013. The tree must be planted within 10 to 30 feet and on the west, south or east side of an air-conditioned home or business. For complete rebate guidelines and tree planting instructions, go to cpsenergy.com or call (210) 353-2728.
