The weather is heating up and electricity prices are on the rise (as much as 27% higher than last year for some folks!) The good news? Also on the rise are your opportunities to earn major rewards with OhmConnect. That’s right friends, starting May 30, 2022, MEGA Summer is back!

Why is energy saving so important in the summer? 

With hotter temperatures comes increased demand on the grid, (mostly thanks to the *millions* of air conditioners that switch on at the same time) and the importance of OhmConnect members is greater than ever. 

It may not seem like much but simply adjusting your thermostat by a few degrees or shutting off your deep freezer for an hour with your smart plug can make a BIG difference. When we all work together, the little actions OhmConnect members take can mean the difference between the power staying on or a blackout. 

(Not only that, but energy used during peak hours is often what ratchets up your electricity bill sky high.)

But it doesn't have to be doom and gloom and it’s not all serious business. It’s FUN to be an OhmConnect member in the summer! 

What does MEGA Summer look like in 2022? 

The MEGA Summer promotion runs from May 30- Sep 30, 2022. 

The fun you know and love all year long continues with:

Biweekly major prizes

Every other Sunday, we draw the name of one lucky OhmConnect member to win a major prize. Hello VIP sporting experiences, trips, ENERGY STAR appliances and up to $5000 in cash! 

But in addition to that, you’ll see: 

Surge Bonuses 

Surge Bonuses are special occasions when your potential Watt earnings are multiplied if you can successfully save energy during an OhmHour. Surge Bonuses are the BEST way to earn major rewards with OhmConnect and when you spot one coming your way, you know you’ve got an opportunity to really make a difference to the grid and your community’s air quality. 

Surge Bonuses come when the grid is at its most stressed and our collective efforts can make the biggest impact. So dig deep! The more energy you can save during an OhmHour with a Surge Bonus, the more you can earn. Say hello to major multipliers and big rewards! 

A daily $100 cash prize 

$100 cash prizes in the Rewards Marketplace for members with an OhmConnect status of Platinum or Diamond. Every. Single. Day. On May 30th, you’ll see a $100 tile on the Wheel and one lucky OhmConnect member will land on that every day, all summer long. 

But be aware: This prize is ONLY available to OhmConnect members who have achieved a Platinum or Diamond status level, so ensure you’re digging deep during every OhmHour to save as much energy as you can to be eligible!
