MEGA Summer Impact

Last year was OhmConnect's first MEGA Summer season and it blew our socks off. Together, through our individual micro-actions of things like unplugging electronics and dining by candlelight during #OhmHour, we were able to reduce demand on the energy grid by more than 500 MWh, which is the carbon equivalent of:

  • charging 451 million smartphones
  • running the washing machine for 67 years straight
  • running the AC for 16 years straight
  • planting 2 million trees
  • lighting the Eiffel Tower 23 days, non stop!

We can't wait to see what we can accomplish this year.

New to OhmConnect? No problem!

What's an #OhmHour?
It's the one hour each week when saving energy matters most. Mother nature will thank you, plus, you get paid! When you receive a notification about a MEGA #OhmHour, even bigger rewards are in your future. Connect your utility account to get started.

Okay... what's a MEGA #OhmHour?
This is an extra special #OhmHour when your energy savings make an even bigger impact. Each MEGA #OhmHour will come with a specific energy-saving goal, such as "use 1 KWh or less." These targets are tailored to your own personal energy use, so everyone has an equal chance of hitting the goal. You still earn your regular points during a MEGA #OhmHour, plus have the chance at some fun bonuses.

The Nitty Gritty Details

  1. Qualifying actions for the weekly prize are: you must either achieve your MEGA #OhmHour goal or get a referral to Silver status.
  2. A referral must reach Silver status within the week to count as a qualifying event.
  3. Each weekly prize qualification period starts after a winner is selected on Friday.
  4. You may only qualify for the weekly prize once within a single week.
  5. Your eligibility for a weekly prize is determined when your meter data is calculated and not when you participated in a Mega #OhmHour. This means, that if you qualify for a Mega #OhmHour, but your utility sends your data to us after the weekly drawing, you'll automatically be entered into the next week's draw. We've got your back!
  6. To qualify for the end-of-summer grand prize, you must qualify for the weekly prize at least three times.
  7. Winners for both the weekly prize and end-of-summer grand prize will be chosen by randomly selecting a user from within the pool of qualified users.
  8. You can read the Official Rules to Mega Summer here.
