This App Puts a Price Tag on the Energy You Squander

March 24, 2013

 
Last month, GOOD held a Hacking Energy Culture hackathon at Maryland Institute College of Art, aimed at generating new ways to interface with energy consumption, waste, and preservation. This solution, from teammates Noah Boyle, Christine Brown, Maria Chimiskyan and Bryan Connor, received the people's choice award.
 
When it comes to energy use, changing our behavior is no easy task. We watch stirring documentaries, worry about toxic power plants, and try to calculate our carbon footprint, but at the end of the day we are set in our electrical ways. 
 
What’s On is a new app that helps reduce electricity use by speaking in a language everyone can understand: money.
