OhmConnect pays you to save energy. And while the chance to make money is always a bonus, what we love most is the impact we can have together as a community.
How many people does it take to unplug a power plant? 500,000!
More important than our impact on our wallets, is the impact we have on the planet. Take a peek at what’s been done together so far.
The sun is setting on dirty power. Four years ago, OhmConnect set out to pay people for saving energy when it’s coming from dirty and carbon-intensive power plants.
Today, thousands of people use OhmConnect to save energy, reduce their carbon impact, and get paid. From San Diego to Buffalo and everywhere in between, participants save energy when power is dirtiest in their community. How much has your community been paid for saving energy?
While different communities save at different times, the most power OhmConnect generated at one particular moment has exceeded 100 Megawatts.
There are a total 126 million residences in California.
This means that if everyone participated in #OhmHour energy sharing events, our community would be able to produce 25 Gigawatts of power from simple savings.
That’s only with 500,000 users participating in the program.
How does our community create such dramatic impact?
#OhmHours mean togetherness, time with family, time outside. While it’s harder to measure, the social impact of our collective unplugging is something we’re pretty proud of.
What #OhmHour habit do you want to build?
Mostuse #OhmHours as an excuse to build good habits our modern 'always on' way of life makes difficult. Use them as an excuse to unplug and recharge.
Community members with smart and connected homes automate their participation. Smart thermostats, smart plugs, electric cars all respond automatically to #OhmHours, making participation easier than flipping a switch.
