Starin Hall Electricity Monitoring and Behavior Study
The purpose of this pilot study is to explore a variety of casual factors that may contribute to electricity usage and potential reduction by residences of Starin Hall, the new residence hall at UW-Whitewater. Starin Hall, with individual real-time electricity meters in each suite, makes an ideal "living laboratory" in which to conduct such a study. Multiple factors such demographics and values/beliefs of residents will be used to assess their response to an experimental treatment - providing access to real-time information about their electricity usage (on the in suite meters and through a web interface). The specific hypothesis to be tested is whether access to real-time information about electricity usage leads to behavior changes and energy usage reduction based upon some underlying value system of the residents.

Update 6/21/2011: Starin Hall is now LEED Gold Certified! Read the review.
