Commonwealth Edison Company, better known as ComEd, is one of the largest and most advanced energy company in the nation. But hey, that doesn't mean you can leave your lights on. This awareness campaign was created to remind customers in Illinois to be more energy efficient by turning off their lights and changing their old inefficient bulbs. And what better way to do it than talking light bulbs? Join the fun in the kitchen as Phil the incandescent bulb voices his frustration of being left on and receives a pleasant surprise by his colleagues.

Retired campaign: Fridge Recycling and Energy Efficiency
We continue our Smart Ideas energy efficiency campaign with tips on fridge recycling and tips on saving with your current fridge. Our TV spot starts back in the kitchen as our young, energetic fridge Finley sees off his ol’ energy wasting dad Frank into retirement. But not before the old timer makes certain his legacy remembers what it takes to save energy. And don’t worry, we didn’t forget about our friends Eddie the Outlet and the LED crew.

85' Bears Promotion
We had the honor to work with Chicago Bears legends Otis Wilson and "The Sackman" Richard Dent to encourage Illinois residents to retire their old fridges. In return, they'd win $50, tickets to the game and best of all a visit from the dynamic duo themselves to talk saving energy and toss around the ol' pigskin.

ComEd encourages not just young Latinos, but students from all over the city to pursue a career in the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
