Down to Earth
Spotlight on the Southwest
Tuesday nights at 7:00 p.m, you’re invited to listen in on conversations between Mrs. Green and some extraordinary people doing amazing things in every area of sustainability. This series began with an amazing 6th grader who has embraced the Green lifestyle since birth; listeners loved it and asked us to do it again…and again and so we are! It’s a 30-minute, commercial free show that will delight and inform. Please join us.
If you’re are using your Smartphone to listen, you will need to download a streaming audio/radio application from the app store for your device/operating system.

Nikole White, Program Manager UNS Renewable and Demand Side Resources and Leslie Waters, Energy Efficiency Coordinator UNS Renewable and Demand Side Resources
The TEP mantra on this program is pretty simple: Plant a tree. Create shade. Conserve Energy. To that end, TEP has re-launched its urban forestry shade trees program. The new Trees for You program is designed to help us reduce our energy consumption by planting shade trees. Mrs. Green loves that! TEP is now partnering with Civano Nursery and other local nurseries to help homeowners, schools, neighborhoods and community groups plant shade trees to save energy and cool and beautify our community. Join us to learn from Nikole and Leslie just how to go about participating in this program and why tree conservation matters so much in this desert of ours. This show made possible due to the generous support of Tucson Electric Power Company.
