* Those installing energy-efficient lighting can receive up to $100 per kilowatt of energy reduction.

* 500 residential customers will be sought for a two-year project to test remote shut-offs of air conditioners during peak electric use hours.

* Customers who plant trees on the sunny, west or southwest sides of buildings will receive a $10 cash rebate or an energy-efficient fluorescent bulb valued at $15.
