Tree Power was initially established by the American Public Power Association (APPA) to “beautify the environment and help customers save money and conserve energy”. On April 25, 2015, the Kerrville Public Utility Board (KPUB) celebrated its 20th and final year of Tree Power, giving away a 20-year total of 41,000 trees to KPUB customers.
Stephen Fine, Chairman of the Board, said, “This “green” initiative was and is about conserving energy, but trees are lasting. The trees we’ve planted are living legacies which will be around long after we’re gone. Hopefully the 41,000 trees given out over the last 20 years have added value and enjoyment to the community.”
In the spirit of this tradition, KPUB is now implementing a new Shade Tree Rebate Program. Effective October 1, 2015, KPUB will provide limited rebates to KPUB customers who purchase and plant eligible trees according to the program requirements.
