Our Prize-Winning Approach


QuitCarbon has won some big awards from the US Department of Energy for our unique service and results in accelerating home electrification upgrades. Regional government agencies such as 3C-REN also recognize our value via strategic partnerships.


The 60-Day Home Electrification Campaign

3C-REN aims to inspire local homeowners to ditch gas and go electric. To advance their Home Energy Savings programs, they needed to gauge the effectiveness of their outreach methods and identify how to invest their resources better.

With a compressed timeline and modest budget, QuitCarbon created and implemented a highly effective campaign to promote home electrification – and generated valuable insights to inform 3C-REN's future campaigns.
