No joke - you can make hundreds of dollars by taking one easy weekly action just like more than 100,000 users in California
Did you know that some California residents are earning in the hundreds, even THOUSANDS of dollars, simply for getting a bit smarter about their home energy use one evening per week?
It’s true. It’s totally legal, easy to do and best of all - it’s a small, tangible action that’s good for the planet.
OhmConnect is a free service that rewards their users for saving energy when it matters most to the grid and the environment. Participants who have connected their utility account to the platform receive a notification around once per week to save energy for an hour. If you save energy, you receive cash.
It may sound hard to believe, but most of the household electricity costs across the country are caused by our consumption during just a handful of hours throughout the year, when everyone’s using energy at the same time.
And although it’s always a good idea to conserve energy whenever you possibly can, those small handful of important hours is when energy conservation is most critical.
A growing number of states (California included) would prefer to pay people for saving energy during those peak hours than creating new energy sources because it’s cheaper, cleaner, and puts money back in the pockets of community members.
That’s where OhmConnect comes in. OhmConnect coordinates and combines the energy savings from thousands of households and small businesses across California when it matters most to the grid. The grid pays OhmConnect for those savings, and then OhmConnect passes along those payments to participants. (You!)
Michael Edgerle and his wife, Tiffany, of Bakersfield, CA never expected to earn major money when they clicked on a Facebook post about OhmConnect. Like most new users, they saw an ad online and thought there was no harm in giving it a shot if there was a chance to earn a few dollars for saving energy, and connected their PG&E account.
Now, only three months into participation in #OhmHours, the Bakersfield couple has earned more than $1200 and are on their way to more than paying off their annual energy bill - simply for unplugging for an hour per week and telling their friends about their experience.
“When we hit $1000 in less than three months, I couldn’t believe it,” Michael said. “We’ve made this amount of money from something we didn’t even know about a few weeks ago!”
