Inspiration

The concept of calorie-tracking apps/websites, which allow users to enter what they eat and see how many calories (and nutrients, vitamins, etc.) they consume daily, inspired us to create EcoTracker.

What it does

EcoTracker lets users list some of the appliances in their room and find out how much energy they consume in a day as well as how much that electricity costs. EcoTracker also shows users how much it would cost them to buy enough solar panels to cover the costs. Additionally, users can use EcoTracker to view historical data of their state's renewable and non-renewable energy consumption.

How we built it

We used Vue.js (which uses normal HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) to build our web app.

Challenges we ran into

Some of us were not very experienced with collaborative programming yet. i think i messed it up i pressed a bunch of buttons

Accomplishments that we're proud of

  • This is our third hackathon
  • Coming up with a useful idea

What we learned

  • How to plan and work quickly
  • How to code collaboratively

What's next for EcoTracker

Adding more options for appliances and making the list more flexible Connecting to a smart home and using the devices and data to estimate power usage.
