Your eligibility for weekly prizes is determined according to when your Energy Saving Events performance data is available and not necessarily the week in which you participate in the energy event. For instance, if you participate in an energy event during week 1, but your energy event performance data isn’t available until week 2, your data will be included in the Week 2 drawing evaluation.If you achieve at least one of the qualifications during a qualifying period, you will be put in the pool of others who did the same. One or more names per week will be randomly selected as the reward recipient.The winners of each weekly prize will be announced on the Sunday following the qualification period at 5pm PT on OhmConnect's Facebook page, during the prodcast "MEGA Summer Live."

2. The Sweepstake Prizes:
Each OhmConnect User who is entered as discussed above will qualify to win a prize as discussed below. First, during the Sweepstakes Period, OhmConnect will randomly select one or more qualifying OhmConnect User(s) to win a cash prize , or an optional equivalent prize in goods or services, which will be announced at the beginning of each qualifying week. Prize value will be evenly split amongst winners during weeks in which multiple winners are selected. During the Sweepstakes Period, OhmConnect Users may receive an email or other communications announcing the Sweepstakes. For purposes of weekly qualification, except for the first week, a week starts every Friday at 5:01 PM Pacific Time (PT) after a winner is selected for the previous week and ends the following Friday at 5:00 PM PT just prior to selecting a weekly winner. The last week of qualifications for weekly prizes will end on September 25, 2020, and the last weekly prize will be announced on September 27, 2020. You may qualify for a weekly prize only once per week. Second, each OhmConnect User who qualifies for a weekly prize at least five times during the Sweepstakes Period is automatically entered into a random drawing to win your energy bill paid for life Grand Prize (The Grand Prize actual cash value will be determined at the end of the Sweepstakes Period based on the winner's previous 12 months of actual electricity usage, multiplied by 50 years - and is capped at a maximum of $50,000).
