The amount donated to the Sierra Club depends on how much energy you save and how frequently you participate. OhmConnect sends about one energy saving event per week.
As a reminder, this donation is not tax-deductible because the Sierra Club is a 501c4 organization. Check out our FAQ to answer any additional questions you may have.
Donating to the Sierra Club just became as easy as flipping a light switch!
If you have smart devices and electric vehicles, you can also automate Ohmconnect. Reduce your energy at the right time without lifting a finger.
No fancy devices? No problem, you can still respond to the alerts by manually turning things off in your home.
During these energy saving events, called #OhmHour, the electricity grid needs additional power. The grid can either turn on a dirty and expensive power plant or homes and businesses can reduce their electricity usage. By turning off unused lights and appliances and by unplugging batteries, we can help prevent the dirtiest power plants from turning on.
State energy authorities would prefer to pay residents to save energy at these times rather than pay those dirty power plants to turn on. It’s cheaper and produces less pollution. OhmConnect coordinates with the state’s electricity grid and donates the proceeds to the Sierra Club and you.
Approximately 75 #OhmHours happen each year, creating plenty of opportunities for you to help reduce the need for dirty energy.
With enough people reducing energy at once we can take entire power plants out of the equation.
