The ComEd Save and Share™ mobile app was designed to give eligible residential customers weekly targets for reducing their energy use and Save and Share Dollar rewards, which they could share with local, participating community organizations.
This project was aimed at income eligible residential customers within Chicago’s Bronzeville neighborhood. The app provided users information on their energy use and personalized recommendations on how to use less. Any Save and Share Dollars customers earned would be matched by ComEd in a special account they could use to share with churches, youth organizations and other non-profit community groups.
While adoption of the app ultimately remained low, the insight and connections gained from working so closely with partner organizations will prove invaluable for future ComEd initiatives in the Bronzeville neighborhood.
