NDSU expert launches online game to help homeowners save energy

Posted on 3/7/2016

An online game was recently launched to encourage energy conservation in the community.

Malini Svrivastava, who teaches in NDSU's architecture program, and her eFargo team collaborated to create a game for Fargo and West Fargo residents to help sustain energy efficiency goals that could lower energy bills and lower environmental impact.

The game awards points for performing energy-saving tasks around the house. Top performers earn prizes while saving money on their bills.

Fargo and West Fargo residents can go to to register and play.

eFargo recently was selected to participate in a two-year Georgetown University Energy Prize competition with a $5 million top award for developing sustainable energy-saving innovations. The group is one of 50 semifinalists.

eFargo is a partnership with the city of Fargo and the two electric companies in Fargo and West Fargo. The goal is a 5 percent reduction in energy use and local energy bills, and a 5 percent increase in local renewable energy in the next two years.
