Have you Re-Energized Your Business with Green Power?
If so, your commitment to reducing your impact makes you a leader in your community and we want to help you tell your story.
PSE’s Green Power Program is looking for businesses to showcase in regional print advertising as well as our biannual customer newsletter the Green Power Report. This valuable coverage is an opportunity open to all Green Power businesses that participate in the program at the 100% level.
After telling us you’d like to be featured, at random, we’ll select the order in which we write and publish your story. Every year, we advertise in nearly 15 regional papers, including the Puget Sound Business Journal — so there is a lot of opportunity for coverage.
Features will be written, shared, and published throughout the year and primarily placed in their own community papers. However, large coverage opportunities, like the Green Power Report and the PSBJ, will be selected by lottery.
Depending on the level of interest from Green Power businesses, placement may happen only once. However, we will provide your business with PDFs of your feature for use in your own promotional materials.
I’d like my business to be featured, but what is the time commitment?
We’ll do all the writing and researching, but you’ll need to participate in a short interview as well as review and approve the feature before we can publish. Articles must be approved by your business as well as the PSE communications department.
I saw other businesses featured in ads but didn’t know this was an option. How can my business gain this exposure?
We make the offer periodically through our Re-Energize Your Business quarterly newsletter. And, beginning in the fall of 2011 we began offering as an incentive for new sign-ups.
Participation is open to any and all Green Power businesses at the 100% level. If you aren’t at 100% we can upgrade you today and put you in the story pool.
Why is the drawing only open to 100% level participation?
Since this is a new initiative, considering only 100% level participating businesses made sense as a way to tell stories highlighting the strongest commitment. By featuring businesses our goal is to position you as a leader in your community and incentivize others to join the program. By selling more green power we are reducing fossil fuel consumption and pollution while also supporting our independent regional power providers.
How often will profiles be placed?
Depending on the level of participation, advertisement placement may be only once. However, we will provide your business with PDFs of the placement for use in your own promotional materials.
