Insights, Strategy & the Idea: Power conservation is considered by many to be a bother and something that isn’t worth doing. In order to encourage British Columbians to adopt power saving behaviour, BC Hydro showed that they practice what they preach by creating an out of home campaign that actually conserved electricity.
This unusual strategy grabbed people’s attentions while at the same time showcasing how easy it can be to save power.
Creative Execution: BC Hydro reminded people how they could reduce their power consumption by doing it themselves. In this case they installed a motion sensor to a backlit transit shelter. The shelter only lit up when someone was present to view it. Their energy efficient out of home campaign saved over 100 Kwh of electricity.
Results: This execution was part of a multi-media campaign that is attributed with convincing 84,000 additional households across the province to do more to conserve electricity. Recent research has found that a record breaking 91% of British Columbians are now practicing energy conscious behaviour in their homes.
