Save Energy, Grow Trees

Posted in California,Demand Management by Cheryl Morgan on the January 5th, 2009

California has come up with yet another way to reduce energy consumption, and it has solid green credentials. The idea is simple. If you grow trees on the south side of your house then they will shade it against the sun, and you’ll need less air conditioning.

Hint: please don’t plant redwoods. Beautiful as they are, you really don’t want one of those giants next to your house. Eucalypts are also not a good idea, because they are very fond of burning.
