JouleBug @ Wesleyan

As a part of the Do It in the Dark contest, Wesleyan is holding its third JouleBug competition, JouleBug is an app that lets you track your sustainable behaviors and earn points, with the ultimate aim of developing a culture of sustainability.  All residential energy savings generated through JouleBug efforts will result in direct contributions to financial aid

The JouleBug competition will run from Sunday, October 12 - Saturday, November 22, 2014 with 3 sub-contests:

Sunday 10/12 - Saturday 10/25 Focus: reducing laptop energy usage
Sunday 10/26 - Saturday 11/8 Focus: shorter showers
Sunday 11/9 - Saturday 11/22 Focus: reducing heating usage

More information on the contest will be coming soon.  For more information, email  

Individuals can participate without a team just by getting the JouleBug app and using it on campus.  JouleBug is available for download: iOS or Android.
