OhmConnect's MEGA Summer has had a great positive impact on the environment. Thanks everyone for participating and congrats to our MEGA Summer prize winner!
What a summer! Last night, we wrapped OhmConnect’s MEGA Summer campaign. I’m floored by what we all did together. More than 150,000 OhmConnect community members participated in MEGA Summer 2019.
Through all of your individual actions like installing smart plugs, unplugging electronics, and hosting family game nights during #OhmHours, we were able to reduce demand on the energy grid by more than 380 MWh -- an amount equal to shutting down 6 dirty power plants or planting 1.5 million trees. During MEGAs, my family and I made an effort to get out of the house - out to dinner or for a walk. These little increments add up.
If you were to tell me three years ago that we would successfully turn off 6 power plants, I would have been a skeptic. In fact, many people told me it could never be done. But our community has proven that we can take back control of our electricity grid and our impact on this planet.
To celebrate everything we’ve done this summer, we’re excited to announce that Christina from Fresno, CA is our 2019 MEGA Summer Grand Prize winner. Congrats, Christina, you just got your energy bill paid for LIFE!
As most of you know, demand on the energy grid is highest in the summer months. During the cooler months, the energy grid is more stable and electricity prices are lower, so our program looks slightly different.
Here’s what you can expect in the off season:
