PSE&G Increases Energy Efficiency with “Welcome to the Saverhood” Campaign
A campaign was launched in March 2022 to raise awareness of the PSE&G’s energy efficiency programs by using a memorable and engaging look and feel across marketing efforts. To build on its momentum and maximize the number of customers reached, the campaign has extended through several mediums, including social media videos, TV spots, out-of-home (OOH) advertising, digital advertisements, printed collateral, and event displays and giveaways. This omnichannel marketing campaign spanned PSE&G’s service territory in New Jersey and employed a wide variety of tactics. Campaign highlights include more than 247,000 paid media conversions, 908 million paid impressions, more than 318,000 welcome kits delivered directly to residential customers, and 2.3 million website sessions. Chartwell analysts chose PSE&G as the Gold Program Marketing Award winner for its “Welcome to the Saverhood” campaign.
