Cobb EMC EV Adoption Campaign

Innovative launch campaign charges EV adoption.

Cobb Electric Membership Corporation is a non-profit electric utility company serving parts of greater Atlanta, Georgia. With a new flexible billing rate to support consumer adoption of electric vehicles (EVs), Cobb EMC turned to Phase 3 to bring this exciting innovation to market, and to help members think differently about how they consume electricity, and how that intersects with how they commute to work.

Our team not only developed the name for the new rate, NiteFlex, but also crafted a complete launch campaign strategy that promotes the benefits of electric vehicle adoption: Online display, out of home media relations, brochure, and email, all leading to a microsite. There, consumers get an introduction to EVs and at-home charging, as well as numerous resources for taking the next step toward an all-electric commute—tax incentives, charging stations, dealerships, and more.  

In order to create a compelling campaign, we designed and developed a progressive visual expression and complete messaging framework, all focused on dispelling myths about EVs while highlighting key benefits for adoption. Now Cobb EMC is an active participant in the EV conversation with consumers.


Imagine having a gas station at home that charges nothing. With NiteFlex you can charge your car overnight at no cost.
