You will receive about one or two #OhmHours per week, in which case you are asked to save energy for about one hour.
It’s really simple to participate in an #OhmHour: switch off a few lights, unplug unused electronics, adjust your home heating and cooling. While not required -- if you have smart devices, OhmConnect can automatically switch them off for you.
You can set the hours you prefer to receive #OhmHours and you are generally given a full day’s notice to prepare for the event. You will be reminded right before it starts, and are able to opt out of any #OhmHour up to 15 minutes into the hour.
If you have connected your utility account, your savings are measured based on your historical use supplied by your smart meter. You can read more about how your savings are measured in the Participating in #OhmHours section.
Users who have not connected their utility account to OhmConnect can still earn tokens for participation when they tell OhmConnect how they are saving.
