ComEd: Energy Routine

  • Integrated Campaign
  • Inclusive marketing

In a world where consumers only think about their energy for nine minutes a year, ComEd wanted to increase engagement for its programs and education around energy efficiency to help its customers save money and energy.

Challenge

Battle “energy efficiency apathy” among customers in the ComEd service territory — and help customers save money and energy through engagement with energy efficiency collateral.

Our Solution

We decided to battle the apathy by focusing on something people care about: saving money on their electric bill while also saving energy.

We tapped into a focused audience in the ComEd service territory — one that is open to or actively seeking out ”green” messaging— to give them a sense of ComEd’s “softer side” and communicate what’s in it for them when they make strides toward energy efficiency.

We created a digital campaign to promote materials around energy efficiency that would educate and inspire this segment of customers to save money while saving energy.

Results

The campaign increased customer engagement with ComEd’s online energy efficiency materials:

  • Click-through rate (from banners to a dedicated campaign landing page) was more than 1.1%, well above the industry standard of .10% 
  • Customers spent 1–2 minutes engaging with the landing page content
