Reaching Low to Moderation Income (LMI) Customers

EFI partnered with Fannie Mae to help utilities identify and engage LMI customers. EFI generated a personalized customer journey to help these customers in a time of need. Customers received access to a free smart thermostat with the use of a unique promotion code. Easier said than done? WRONG! It’s that easy. https://www.efi.org/resources/white-papers/reaching-an-underserved-community/
 

Energy Savings through COVID Kits

With stay-at-home orders in place, utility customers were faced with increasing utility bills and the real possibility of having to choose what bill to pay. Instead of asking customers to order energy efficient products online, EFI worked with utilities to target those most in need, and sent energy-saving products right to their customers' doorsteps - at no cost to them! -> https://www.efi.org/resources/covid-19/how-utilities-are-responding-to-the-customers-fear/
