MEGA OhmHour Winner Takes Home $5000 For Unplugging For An Hour!

For Satya N Reddy of Milpitas, California, participating in #OhmHours already makes life a little bit richer.

He and his family became OhmConnect users in November of last year and since then have been reducing their home’s energy usage once per week, and getting paid to do it.

“We normally plan outdoor activities like going for a walk, taking the kids out to play or getting our shopping done. If we’re home we will read books, arrange playdates for the kids or spend time on their learning activities.”

But this week, his hour of powering down made him a LOT richer.

He was named the first-ever winner of MEGA #OhmHours,, a challenge that awarded him $5000 for showing off his energy saving skills and saving 50% during his #OhmHour.

For Satya N Reddy, it went a little something like this:

  1. Got an OhmHour notification
  2. Reduced his home’s electricity usage by 50% during that OhmHour
  3. Won $5000
