Making an Impact Through Strategic Partnerships

As part of the ComEd Energy Efficiency Program, our Emerging Technologies initiative explores innovative ways to better serve our customers. We recently completed a project that explored a new outreach model to recruit a customer segment that can be difficult to reach with energy efficiency programs—income eligible seniors.

New Insights Into Income Eligible Customers

Recently, the Emerging Technologies Team partnered with Evergreen Economics to assess the needs of income eligible households with high levels of energy use. Through an initial data analysis, bilingual online and phone surveys, plus in-home follow-ups, we identified several key characteristics of these households. 

While our research showed there is no single cause behind each home’s high energy use, the data and insights collected by this study will prove vital to future outreach and engagement of this economically vulnerable population. View details >
