Partners: Slipstream, Faith in Place
Slipstream and Faith in Place are partnering with community organizations to recruit and train residents to become trusted energy advisors in their neighborhoods.
Each EcoAdvocate will coach, promote and track energy efficiency participation within their community. The pilot will seek to recruit, hire and train three EcoAdvocates from each community for a total of nine individuals.
The pilot will utilize existing program offerings and online tools to the maximum extent possible, including signups for Home Energy Assessment, Fridge Recycling, the ComEd® mobile app and My Account with the suite of online tools. EcoAdvocates will seek to create multiple touchpoints with each participant through several visits throughout a year. EcoAdvocates will be compensated for their work, will receive training prior to the pilot, and will receive real job placement support following the pilot. Slipstream will analyze and report energy savings and participant survey results.
