Case study: Engaging Con Edison customers in energy efficiency
In 2019, Con Edison has collaborated with Fresh EBT to promote their Neighborhood program and provide Con Edison customers who receive SNAP benefits with an opportunity to save energy through free LED lightbulbs.
Since Con Edison began sharing information on the Neighborhood program to select Brooklyn and Queens zip codes, more than 1,200 Con Edison customers who are SNAP recipients have clicked on the offer since the campaign began in late August. This program is helping Con Edison manage the grid as a part of its Non-Wires Solutions Program that aims to reduce grid need in targeted areas.
By running this highly targeted in-app campaign, Con Edison has been able to help even more customers gain control of their energy use and manage their monthly bill.
