The City of Newark and Delaware Municipal Electric Corporation (DEMEC) are again partnering with Ronny’s Garden World for an Earth Day Raffle. Each community winner will win a gift certificate for a tree or shrub valued up to $89.98. To enter, please visit https://tinyurl.com/earthdayraffle. The raffle is open until April 22
DEMEC participates with its members in an Earth day Tree Raffle because shade trees naturally provide a welcoming spot to cool down during hot summer days. When shade trees are properly located and planted they can reduce home and business energy costs by reducing the need for summer air conditioning. The energy savings associated with trees doesn’t stop with summer. In the winter, trees lose their leaves which allows the sun to warm up homes and business; reducing heating needs and lowering heating costs.
