This offer is valid for new OhmConnect customers only and there’s a limit of one per household.

    📌Our reader Ally shared her experience: I LOVE OHM! We’ve been members for about three months now. Energy saving hours are 2 to 3 times a week, and only for an hour at a time. On rare days you will have two hours. our family has found fun things to do during this time by just sitting outside on the patio talking or playing games. We have already been able to cash in our points for a $100 Amazon gift card. We’re now halfway to our second $100 Amazon gift card. Love this program and of course, help save energy and being conscious of our use of power.

    Here’s What To Do:

    OhmConnect is free to use. Your utility service remains completely unaffected and you can opt-out at any time. You earn points (redeemable for cash) for your #ohmHours participation. You’ll receive about 1 or 2 #OhmHour a week via email and text.

    How Does This Work?

    1. Monitoring – OhmConnect connects and monitors real-time conditions on the electricity grid. When too much energy is being used in your area, dirty and unsustainable power plants are turned on to support this usage.
    2. Notification – We get a notification via text message or email when our home has been detected for using energy from unsustainable sources. This isn’t our home’s fault. This just means many homes in our area are using electricity at the same time and the sustainable power plant that supports our area can no longer meet the demand.
    3. Save – For about 30-60 mins, you can choose to save some unnecessary energy usage. Turning off lights, turn off the TV, etc. By choosing to save energy at that time, the state does not have to turn on additional power plants that are bad for the environment and California’s electricity market (energy authorities) pay for this. This time is known as #OhmHour
    4. Get Paid – Receive up to $100-$300 per year, plus do something good for the environment! Seriously, win-win.

    My Personal Experience

    I have been a member for more than a year now and I actively participate every week (Mainly because I didn’t know I had the option to opt-out until now. lol. As such, I’ve been part of every #OhmHour. I’m telling you, it’s easy. In this case, ignorance was a blessing. I don’t want to miss them now!)

    Below is a screenshot of my own #OhmHour Performance in the past. Keep in mind 100 points is equivalent to $1.00 in earnings. In this one week, I participated in 3 events by turning off lights we didn’t need for an hour and I made $5.63! So easy. It might not seem like a lot of money but it does add up over time! Seriously, I’ll take a Free $5 any day, okay? If you have $5 laying around you don’t need, feel free to send them my way! 😉 Plus, you’re helping the environment and lowering your own energy bill.

    They usually email you once a day or a few hours ahead of time to let you know when the next #OhmHour will be for your area. You’ll also get a text message 10 mins before it starts as a reminder. When the hour is over, you’ll get an email letting you know.

    Participating in an #OhmHour is extremely easy. Once I get the text reminder, I usually flip off extra lights we’re not using, turn off the heater, turn off the TV, stop the dishwasher. My family often uses this time as an opportunity to do fun board games together. We’ll gather at the dinner table (so we can turn off lights in all other rooms). Sometimes my kids will draw next to us at the table, while I attempt to beat my husband in a few games of Backgammon with a glass of wine. I always lose. lol

    You also have the option to opt-out of #OhmHour up to 15 mins before the hour starting, by clicking on the link in your notification. I just learned this. Sweet!

    I cannot express how much I love this company. It’s innovative, supports the environment, and rewards its users for doing good. Plus, the family cozy time is just bonuses on top. Click here to see if your area qualifies. If your utility company qualifies, do it! Just do it. You can thank me later. 🙂
