Participate in a Focus Group

We are hosting five virtual focus groups
across our service region to connect with members.

This is your chance to share your experience with Great Lakes Energy and be part of important conversations that will help shape messaging and deepen our connection within your community.

There are two ways to participate: join a focus group or complete a survey.

Focus Groups

Have something on your mind about our services?

We’re here to listen.

These focus groups will help us learn more about what our members most need and how we can better communicate.

Members will receive one $20 gift card to Walmart for participating in a full focus group.

Information shared with us will be kept private and confidential.
Please only sign up for one focus group.

What to Expect:

  • Approximately 60 minutes over Zoom [virtual setting].
  • Between 8-10 participants in each session.
  • Facilitated by our partner Piper & Gold Public Relations.
  • Engage in a dialogue with other Great Lakes Energy members and provide feedback about service, messaging, and more.
