Energy Upgrade California

Under the charge of the California Public Utilities Commission, CSE implemented the statewide marketing, education and outreach strategy of Energy Upgrade California® during 2011-2016. The comprehensive energy management initiative helped Californians take action to save energy, conserve natural resources, reduce demand on the electricity grid and make informed energy management choices at home and at work.

CSE used a wide range of marketing channels to increase brand awareness and engage consumers, including paid and earned media, digital and social media and the Energy Upgrade California website. In addition, the program conducted extensive personal outreach and education through events, retail stores, mobile displays and community-based organizations. CSE also engaged in partnerships and sponsorships with other stakeholders that reached the program’s targeted audiences and their influencers.
