This page describes the terms and conditions (“Offer Terms”) that apply to OhmConnect’s San Diego $50 Credit and Discounted Smart Device Offer (referred to in these terms and conditions as the “Promotion”).
Some California residents cannot participate in this Promotion because they are not electric service customers of San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E), even though they live in California.
PLEASE READ THESE OFFER TERMS CAREFULLY AND IN FULL. THEY CONTAIN CONDITIONS AND RESTRICTIONS ON THE PROMOTION AND INFORMATION ON WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU FAIL TO SATISFY THE OHMCONNECT REGISTRATION PROCESS AFTER RECEIVING YOUR SELECTED SMART DEVICE, INCLUDING WHEN YOU CAN BE CHARGED THE FULL MSRP PRICE OF THE SMART DEVICE PLUS APPLICABLE TAX IF YOU FAIL TO TIMELY CONNECT THE SMART DEVICE TO OHMCONNECT WITHIN THE PERIOD SPECIFIED.
OhmConnect is a free service that can help consumers decrease energy usage during periods of high demand. OhmConnect, Inc. (“OhmConnect”) is offering a $50 credit to existing electric service customers of the California utility, SDG&E, who sign up and are new to OhmConnect. Moreover, OhmConnect has partnered with Google and several other manufacturers to offer along with the $50 credit (1) a discounted smart thermostat (such as the Google Nest thermostat, ecobee3 lite thermostat, or Sensi smart thermostat) or (2) a $0.99 smart plug to these new customers. Promotion participants are referred to in these Terms and Conditions as “Participants.”
If you select the smart plug or smart thermostat, you also must connect your smart device to OhmConnect within 30 days of delivery or you will be charged the full MSRP for your selected smart plug or smart thermostat plus applicable sales tax (less amount already paid).
If you select the smart plug or smart thermostat, the smart device may require your agreement to other terms and conditions between you and the manufacturer or licensor of that smart plug or smart thermostat.
These Offer Terms incorporate by reference the additional terms and conditions corresponding to OhmConnect’s demand response program and, for those who are eligible for and elect to receive a discounted Google Nest thermostat, Google’s Nest Rush Hour Rewards Program, both of which can be found here:
These Offer Terms are meant to be consistent with and supplementary to the Terms of Service, the Nest Rush Hour Rewards Terms, and any other terms imposed by the smart device manufacturers or licensors of the smart device (as applicable). In the event of any inconsistency or direct conflict between these Offer Terms and the Terms of Service or any other additional terms, these Offer Terms will prevail.
Subject to availability, OhmConnect will provide a $50 credit to your OhmConnect wallet (which can be redeemed for a gift card or via PayPal for cash) or a $50 account credit with a discounted smart thermostat or discounted smart plug to each individual who satisfies the eligibility requirements between August 1, 2022 at 12:001 AM Pacific Time (PT) and October 31, 2023 at 11:59 PM (PT) (the “Promotional Period”), including enrolling in OhmConnect’s demand response program, authorizing your utility usage data to be shared with OhmConnect, and becoming an active OhmConnect user. If you select the discounted smart plug or smart thermostat, you must connect your device within 30 days of delivery of your smart device. The available smart plugs at the discounted price of $0.99 plus applicable sales tax are either one (1) OhmPlug or one (1) TP-Link smart plug. The available smart thermostats at the discounted price of $38.99 plus applicable sales tax are either (a) a Google Nest thermostat, (b) an ecobee3 lite thermostat, or (c) a Sensi smart thermostat.
