Residence Life commissioned a student duo to research and develop the EcoPower app in collaboration with technical experts on staff. Now, users are able to choose a virtual dorm room or an office to explore their energy footprint, and can customize the room to see how much electricity the everyday items they depend on require. Kilowatt-hours are translated into cost and compared with average energy usage, and electricity reduction tips scroll across the page. EcoPower is available on computer or mobile devices.
