Peoples, the Pittsburgh-based natural gas utility company, wanted to transform their public perception as a natural gas utility to an energy solutions company. Peoples identified three areas where they wanted to inspire conversation: Natural Gas Vehicles, Combined Heat and Power, and Construction Heat. The objective was to create awareness among influencer target audiences to reach out to Peoples sales team members to discuss solutions in these areas.
