Piedmont Electric Website
Piedmont Electric is an electric cooperative that serves 30,000 residential & commercial customers across 6 counties in central North Carolina.
We’ve worked with Piedmont Electric since early 2013. We write and design two monthly newsletters, one for customers and one for employees. We also help Piedmont with a variety of other communication efforts including:
- Annual Report
- Speech Writing
- Preparation and presentation materials for the company’s annual meeting
- Monthly billing inserts
In mid-2013, Piedmont approached us to help redesign their website. The old website was build on a proprietary platform which made content updates and layout changes time consuming and cumbersome.
The goals of our web redesign included:
- migration to WordPress
- integration with Piedmont’s social media accounts
- implementation & training on easy-to-use tools that would allow Piedmont staff to add new content
In addition, we created a set of templates and a process that would allow Piedmont to quickly publish updates about power outages during severe weather events like ice storms, thunder storms and hurricanes.
We also linked a custom login form from Piedmont’s public-facing WordPress site to company’s password-protected online account management portal that customers use to pay their bills and manage their account.
