Judges' Comments:

This fits well with my own belief that the best way to market GHG reduction efforts is through the energy saving benefits. I like the simple nature of this approach. I note that I rated the feasibility high, but that is based on the understanding that the techniques have been beta-tested to insure that they actually help participants save money and are relatively simple to implement.

This is a very promising proposal, and one that could connect quite nicely with ongoing efforts in Boulder. My main concern is that the goal of this contest has to do with building community connections. How do you see this project connecting to that? What kind of social organizing would be needed to make it successful? Who would be involved? How would this strengthen the social fabric of Boulder's climate campaigners?I'm also a bit concerned about this: "GGT then uses private partnerships to create additional revenue streams and push green products and services to the users." This business model may arouse concerns about the city enabling a company to profit unfairly off its residents' good intentions. It would help to see a more detailed breakdown of the business model so we can understand the incentives built into the platform.In addition, please break down the $10,000 cost. What does that pay for? Is that expected to come from the city?Finally, it would be helpful to understand better how the impact of this would connect with the effort to achieve carbon neutrality for the city. What kind of a dent would this platform be able to make, according to your projections?
