Launch the site

Ekoguru Website

An innovative website for monitoring and saving energy in the home.

Background

Refresh was approached by Wynand Goosen to develop an online application to promote energy savings in the home.

Aimed at the American market the website allows you to add your energy usage and monitor where you can save energy via a strong gamification element.

What we did

Refresh designed and developed the website, with the aim of generating goals for the user, and incentives to saving energy via their “GuruBucks” program. The website also has a strong community element, with users able to challenge their friends to save energy, and build their energy usage profile.
