1. Introduction

OhmConnect is a free service that can help consumers decrease energy usage during periods of high demand. OhmConnect, Inc. (“OhmConnect”) is offering to electric service customers of PG&E, SCE,  SDG&E and ConEd who join OhmConnect one of the following: a free gift from a selection of available items;  a $25 OhmConnect account credit that can be used for a gift card to one of four merchants; two free smart plugs plus $10 account credit; or a discounted Google Nest. You must be a new OhmConnect customer and enroll in OhmConnect’s demand response program to be eligible. Limit one per participating household.

For those electing to receive a Nest thermostat as part of the Promotion, the OhmConnect demand response program is provided in conjunction with Google’s Nest Rush Hour Rewards Program, and enrollment in both is required to qualify for a discounted Nest thermostat.

Regardless, you must be a new OhmConnect customer and enrolled in OhmConnect’s demand response program to be eligible to participate in the Promotion.

These Offer Terms are meant to be consistent with and supplementary to the General Terms and the Nest Terms (as applicable). In the event of any inconsistency or direct conflict between these Offer Terms and the Terms of Service, these Offer Terms will prevail.

3. Eligibility

To be eligible for the Promotion, you must satisfy all of the following conditions and steps:

Step 1:

Set up an OhmConnect Account. You must become a first-time, fully enrolled customer of OhmConnect. To do so, visit the OhmConnect offer page and create a new OhmConnect account by providing your email address, zip code, first name, and phone number and creating a password. To become an OhmConnect customer, you must agree to the OhmConnect Terms of Service. At this step you can select a free gift, a $25 gift card, two free smart plugs plus $10 credit or a discounted Google Nest smart thermostat.

Step 2:

Authorize Your Utility to Share Usage Data. As part of enrolling in OhmConnect’s demand response program and to be eligible for this Promotion, you must authorize your utility usage data to be shared with OhmConnect.

Before proceeding to Step 3, 4 or 5 (as applicable), your utility (PG&E, SCE, SDG&E or ConEd) must confirm that sharing has been authorized. Depending on your utility’s authorization process, this may take anywhere from 2 minutes to several weeks, although the average time is approximately 10 minutes.

Step 3:

If you opt to receive a Google Nest thermostat: Join Google Nest’s Rush Hour Rewards Program. Enrollment in both the OhmConnect demand response program and Google's Rush Hour Rewards Program is required.

Step 4:

If you opt to receive two free smart plugs or the discounted Google Nest: You must furnish OhmConnect with a valid credit card and provide your authorization for OhmConnect to charge your card for the MSRP listed in Step 7 for the smart device(s) you elect to receive. If you select the discounted Google Nest, at this step we will charge your credit card $64.99 plus applicable sales tax, which will be calculated after you provide your shipping address in Step 5. If you opt for two free smart plugs, we will not charge your credit card anything at this step. You will be charged the full MSRP (less the discounted amount and sales tax already paid if you selected the Google Nest) if you fail to connect the smart device(s) to OhmConnect within 30 days of delivery of the smart device(s) to the shipping address provided in Step 5.

Step 5:

Provide a Shipping Address: Provide a shipping address to where the free gift, free smart plugs or discounted Google Nest will be shipped. If you select the two free smart plugs or the discounted Google Nest, the smart device will be shipped to you after you complete this step.

A “qualifying activity” means: (a) logging into your OhmConnect account, (b) purchasing an item from the OhmConnect store, (c) connecting a new device to OhmConnect’s demand response program for the first time, or (d) inviting new members to join OhmConnect’s demand response program. Upon completion of this step, if you select the the $25 gift card,  the $25 credit will be added to your OhmConnect account.

Step 7:
