This Clean Energy Week, Sept. 24-28, when you take a few moments to explore your renewable options, you’ll also be helping plant hundreds of trees in our communities. It takes just 30 seconds to answer a few questions in our Renewable Advisor online tool, and we’ll show you the best renewable programs and options that fit your lifestyle.
For every person who uses the advisor tool during Clean Energy Week, Xcel Energy will donate a dollar to plant trees. It’s all part of our effort to reduce carbon emissions and help the environment. After all, new trees are an effective, all-natural way of removing carbon from the atmosphere.
- In Minnesota, up to 300 trees will be planted to enhance the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area
- Colorado contributions will assist the Colorado Tree Coalition
Xcel Energy is a leader in reducing carbon emissions, as a national leader in wind energy for more than a decade. In fact, 40 percent of our energy is carbon-free today, and we’ll be more than 60 percent carbon free by 2022, thanks to growth in wind and solar on our system.
