MEGA Summer Impact

2019 was another successful MEGA Summer season and it blew our socks off once more. Together, through our individual micro-actions of things like unplugging electronics and dining by candlelight during #OhmHours, we were able to reduce demand on the energy grid by more than 380 MWh, which is the carbon equivalent of:

  • shutting down 4 dirty power plants
  • charging 34 million smartphones
  • powering a home for 46 YEARS!
  • running the AC for 16 years straight

... in just FOUR months!
We can't wait to see what we can accomplish this year.

New to OhmConnect? No problem!

What's an #OhmHour?
#OhmHours are windows of time where saving energy matters most. When you power down in these critical times, you get paid! Typically, #OhmHours last one hour. During the summer, when the energy grid is highly stressed, they can be longer. Connect your utility account to get started!


Okay... what's a MEGA #OhmHour?
MEGA #OhmHours happen when the grid is especially stressed. They happen a few times throughout the summer and typically come with higher payouts, especially if you’ve got a points multiplier by being Gold status or higher! Unlike last year, MEGA #OhmHours on their own don’t qualify you for the weekly prize.

Get smart about saving this MEGA Summer
Rake in even more rewards this summer by connecting smart devices, like WiFi-enabled plugs and thermostats! Not only will you earn more (and do less!) when it’s time to power down, you’ll also be entered to win our MEGA Summer weekly prizes just by having a device . Plus you’ll start earning automatically in AutoOhms, our new simpler and shorter energy-saving events.
