How to Participate and Help End CA Blackouts

Let's do our part in helping end California blackouts and start saving energy when it matters most. How? It all starts with an OhmHour. What’s an OhmHour, you might be wondering? In short: The OhmHour is where the magic happens.

It’s a brief window of time, usually on weeknight evenings for about an hour a week during which we ask our users to save energy. This is how you can participate and start saving:


We connect you securely with your power company. Be sure to have your utility bill handy or be ready to log in to your online utility account.

Our service is free, does not change your utility plan, and you can opt out at any time.

We'll send you a free smart plug and $30 added to your PayPal account. Connect that smart plug to your OhmConnect account to participate.


We'll send you notifications when the grid is struggling (called OhmHours or AutoOhms). Save energy during those times to help California avoid blackouts --and be rewarded with cash and prizes to boot!

“When we hit $1000 in less than three months, I couldn't believe it. We've made this amount of money from something we didn't even know about a few weeks ago!"

“When we get notified that an #OhmHour is coming up, we make a plan to switch everything off and go out for a walk or a bike ride or a dinner somewhere - which is subsidized by what we earn from OhmConnect!"

“We were pretty energy efficient before we started OhmConnect - we have solar - but we saw this as a chance to do even more for the planet and maybe earn a little money at the same time."

How Is It Possible?

We work with SDG&E, PG&E and SCE, who pay us to reduce energy during times when energy is in high demand. This is cheaper and more efficient than turning on another power plant to generate more energy. California makes that possible, which is how we are able to reward our hundreds of thousands of users with cash payments and the chance to win prizes.

Timing Is Everything

Electricity is most expensive between 5 - 9 pm when solar power is no longer available.

The biggest impact you can have on your energy usage and wallet comes from shifting WHEN you use it.

At OhmConnect, we help you make these shifts through simple text and/or email notifications and automated smart devices.
