Operation Cool Shade Logo 2013The Manager of Public Affairs for the Bullhead City-based Mohave Electric Cooperative (MEC) offered year-end thanks during the December 15 Bullhead City Council meeting. Peggy Gillman expressed appreciation for city support of the utility’s annual Operation Cool Shade program.

   The campaign allows MEC members to purchase low cost trees to plant to shade their home to achieve cooling and utility bill benefit. Gillman said the program is roughly 15 years old and that some 1,800 trees were involved this fall.

   Gillman told Council members city support for the program has been valued. She said MEC shows its thanks for providing the City trees each year, more than 30 this season.
