Our own developers Matt Fong and Michael Ihle came up with the winning hack, a project they call TACO (True Annual Cost of Ownership). Essentially it works like this: Simply install a Google Chrome extension on your browser. When you shop at any online store for appliances (ie. Best Buy or Lowe’s), the TACO extension displays automatically the annual energy cost for the appliance, according to your specific electricity pricing plan. ‘Gamechanging’ according to Katie Fehrenbacher, and the winner of the overall best App at the CleanWeb Hackathon.
