New OhmConnect Customer Wins Paddleboard Set After Just Three Months of Saving Energy

Jose Ramirez from Adelanto, CA heard about OhmConnect from his brother just a few short months ago but has quickly learned the tricks of the trade. 

This week he won a stand up paddleboard set worth $5000 and still has more than 17,000 Watts to spare in his account.

“I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “This is the first time I’ve ever won anything! 

Jose, an avid paddleboarder, wanted to equip the rest of his family with gear so they could go together and spent some of his Watts in the Rewards Marketplace entering the contest. He estimates he had five entries and then brought his total up to 20 entries when he won more spinning the Wheel. 

His winning OhmHour strategy

Living in a three-bedroom house with his wife and three children, Jose quickly figured out the way to win at OhmHours. Here he shares his best tips. 

  1. Never miss an OhmHour. “We try our best to never miss an OhmHour. It’s only an hour or two so there’s always something you can do. We take the time to go for a walk or run an errand or get an outdoor workout in. Don’t skip them if you can.” 
  1. Connect smart devices and let them do the work. “We have a smart thermostat and a bunch of smart plugs - OhmConnect powers all of them down automatically and we just leave the house.”
  1. Level up your status as quickly as you can. “I just checked my account and I’m already at Diamond status! I can’t believe it. I have 17,000 Watts in my account.” 

Congratulations, Ramirez family! We hope you enjoy your next OhmHour out on the water on your new paddleboards.
