Sign up for PNM paperless billing and help donateMarch 15th, 2012 at 2:29 pm by Hawa Konte under Community Affairs, News
From now through March 31, PNM will donate $1 toward planting a grove of native trees with Tree New Mexico for every new signup to its paperless billing program.
“Customers sign up for our paperless billing option to reduce clutter in their homes and businesses and reduce the resulting waste that usually goes into landfills,” said Dan Drennan, PNM customer program manager. “From now through the end of the month, customers who sign up will also help us grow the size of the grove of native trees that we’ll help Tree New Mexico plant this year.”
For every new signup during this period, PNM will donate $1 to Tree New Mexico toward planting a grove of native New Mexico olive trees somewhere along the Rio Grande bosque. The tree species, forestiera neomexicana, benefits soil stability in riparian areas, does well in arid climates and provides food for birds.
“We’re thrilled to help encourage PNM customers to reduce a significant waste stream while benefitting the environment through the planting of native trees,” said Suzanne Probart, executive director of Tree New Mexico. The location of the grove has not yet been determined, but its size will be determined by PNM customer participation in the program through March 31, up to a total size of 400 trees.
Customer can sign up for paperless billing online and support this effort by visiting PNM.com/trees through March 31.
