In order to earn OhmConnect Watts (which you can cash out as fast cash or gift cards), you need to use less energy than you’re predicted to during the OhmHour or AutoOhm.
At its most basic, your Potential Watts are the amount of Watts you could earn if you were to use no power at all in your home during the OhmHour or AutoOhm. It represents how much electricity you could conceivably reduce during an OhmHour or AutoOhm and is calculated using your historical smart meter data.
