Tip #1: Get to Diamond status, and quick!

Every OhmConnect user has a status Level, ranging from Carbon to Diamond. Your status is determined by how much you reduce during #OhmHours and how many #OhmHours you participate in. The higher your status, the more points and prizes you'll earn. Our very best tip and trick? When an #OhmHour comes your way, reduce as much energy as you possibly can to score that top-level status.

Your streak measures the number of consecutive #OhmHours in which you beat your forecast. Our second best tip and trick is to stick with #OhmHours and take advantage of that streak bonus.

The secret sauce for many OhmConnect users who crush their energy baselines is smart devices. Smart devices are things like smart thermostats and smart plugs — and they’re smart because they connect to your home’s internet and can be controlled from anywhere. Even if you’re not an OhmConnect community member, smart home technology should be in the “tips and tricks” handbook for any energy saver.
