80M lbs of CO2 reduced annually

Problem Statement
According to the International Energy Agency, global energy-related CO2 emissions for 2019 were approximately 33 gigatonnes (Gt). We needed to make people aware of their carbon footprint, find ways to reduce their impact, and join a local cause.

People who care about humanities impact on the environment

We needed to understand how people learn about causes. We identified established and unexpected groups that were ready to move forward and take concrete steps toward local, community controlled green energy systems. Many organizations not typically associated with environmental stewardship became invaluable allies if they were moved by a higher calling to protect our home.

After dialing in the zip code search tool, our next priority was to position Greenpower as a movement in addition to being an organization. We focused on creating an information hub to serve as an educational resource. With regularly updated content, the platform has become a news source for thoughtful articles on the renewable energy movement.

As we iterated on the visual identity, to ensure that people didn’t confuse Greenpower with an energy company, we focused on environmental imagery that conveys the power of nature.
