Here at OhmConnect, security and privacy of your energy data are one of our most important priorities.
In a world where data breaches can compromise your personal online safety, we make it our job to ensure your information is stored securely and will never ask you for credit card or banking information in order to pay you for your energy savings. All you need is a PayPal account.
OhmConnect pays you for saving energy when it matters most to the grid and the environment. In order to measure your home’s specific energy savings, we require access to your home’s smart meter data, which your utility manages. Sharing your utility credentials with a safe authentication process authorizes OhmConnect to access your smart meter data, so we can credit you appropriately for all the energy you’re saving.
All personal information is encrypted through robust AES 256 bit CBC encryption algorithms and stored on physically isolated servers. At OhmConnect, your data security is top of mind and we use the strongest security protocols at every junction. Your utility company and the energy market (CAISO) will cross-check and verify the data so that you can be rewarded for participating in #OhmHour events. OhmConnect does not sell your data to third parties, nor does it share your data with any parties besides your utility and the energy market.
