What's an OhmHour, you might be wondering? In short: The OhmHour is where the magic happens
It's a brief window of time, usually on weeknight evenings for about an hour a week during which we ask our users to save energy. This is how you can participate and start saving:
It just takes two minutes! This allows us to track how much energy you can save. Your data is secure and participating will not affect your utility plan. You can opt out any time.
Connect smart plugs or thermostats and save energy automatically when electricity costs most.
Cash out and redeem rewards in our Rewards Marketplace. It's that easy!
We value our customers and put you first; it is about your life and your family, which is why we continuously work on being able to provide you with a great service that allows you to not only save energy and the planet, but also reward you for your efforts.
“It's a free program that pays you to save money. What else is there out there like that? We have smart plugs in a number of outlets throughout the house. That way we can control pretty much all of our electronics and appliances from our phone.”
“We joined OhmConnect because it was something we could do to cut down our energy bills. The easiest part for us really is the smartplugs. We've got plugs on our fridge, our chest freezer, our fish tank filter - anything that's draining energy.”
“So many programs tell you to do X, Y and Z, but I love that OhmConnect actually explains why it's important to do your laundry at a certain time and they actually reward you for making the change. If you do something good, you get a treat!”
We work with SDG&E, PG&E, SCE and ConEd, who pay us to reduce energy during times when energy is in high demand. This is cheaper and more efficient than turning on another power plant to generate more energy. California and New York make that possible. which is how we are able to reward our hundreds of thousands of users with cash payments and the chance to win prizes.
