Company Summary

Because students don’t see an energy bill, they do not have any incentive to use electricity responsibly. Universities are often stuck with high energy bills because students are irresponsible. Carbon Cash gives students both monetary(gift cards) and psychological(peer competition) incentives to use less energy. Because universities save money, they are willing to pay us to implement our system. Retailers are also offered cheap, direct marketing.
