OhmConnect user Jayaprakash almost ignored a text message he received this week, letting him know that he’d won $5000 in this week’s MEGA OhmHour contest.

“Honestly when I got the message on my mobile, I didn’t believe it. I replied to the message, but I thought it must be a scam.”

Lucky for him, it wasn’t!

Jayaprakash was named the third winner of MEGA OhmHours, a challenge that awarded him $5000 for showing off his energy saving skills and saving 50% during his latest OhmHour.

An OhmConnect customer since 2016, he spends most of his OhmHours outside walking with his kids after turning off everything in his home, including his appliances and water heater.

“We think of it as saving power for our future. This is the first time in my life I’ve won a big prize!”
