This week we caught up with one of those users, Sylvester, to hear how he made it happen.
“We just made it our goal” he explained. Whenever we get the alerts about an upcoming #OhmHour we just agree to make it work however we can. It’s happening, so we do whatever we can to make it happen in our home.”
Sylvester lives with his wife in an apartment in San Diego and they first heard about OhmConnect through a Facebook ad.
Starting off small by just flipping off the lights and unplugging here are there, Sylvester and his wife gained momentum by routinely beating their baseline. Since then, they’ve stepped up their #OhmHour game and have invested in power strips and smart plugs.
“The power strips have made it super easy. We look at things like cell phone chargers, electronics, TV’s or game consoles and hook them up to power strips so they’re not using any electricity while they’re off.”
Way to go, Sylvester!
