This is the first tactical campaign created by whiteGREY since winning the account earlier this year.
Powershop has launched Free Power Mode, giving customers a day of free power to celebrate renewable generation when the wind is blowing at its wind farms, in a tactical campaign by whiteGREY.
As determined by the wind, Free Power Mode is activated for 24 hours, with the campaign going live to inform customers they can get free power for the day.
New customers are also able to switch and receive the equivalent of a free day of power. The campaign includes curated video, radio, outdoor, digital, social media and PR.
Free Power Mode is whiteGREY’s first tactical campaign with Powershop since being appointed earlier this year.
Since joining forces, whiteGREY has been managing Powershop’s performance media and was tasked with launching the brand into South Australia.
Powershop chief customer officer Catherine Anderson says she was pleased to give customers free power for the day to celebrate when the wind is blowing at Powershop's wind farms.
“We’re keen to try something out of the box that celebrates renewable generation while supporting our customers and their hip pockets. A day of free power is just one of the many initiatives we have, to put our customers first,” she says.
Directed by Otto’s Julian Lucas, the campaign’s films take viewers behind the scenes at Powershop HQ for a lighthearted look at what happens when Free Power Mode is activated.
“Free Power Mode is a great customer initiative by Powershop that celebrates renewable energy across Australia. To bring it to life this fun, tactical campaign can be deployed in response to the wind," says Joe Hill & Garret Fitzgerald, executive creative directors, whiteGREY.
Melbourne based Powershop powers more than 130,000 homes and businesses across Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia and South East Queensland.
Powershop is Australia’s only electricity and gas retailer to be certified 100% carbon neutral by the Australian Government and is Australia’s greenest power company.
Its parent company Meridian Energy is the owner-operator of two wind farms in Australia.
