As an existing OhmConnect user I was able to order a new Google Nest thermostat ("snow" model) by redeeming Ohm "Watts" (you get "Watts" when saving energy during peak hours). Price was equivalent of $17 ($20 minus 15% bonus) with platinum status, which you get by having an energy savings "streak" of Ohm hour events.
We have been users for a few years and made hundreds by doing almost nothing. By connecting our Nest and smart plugs we are making even more then without. Opting out is always possible.
Ohmconnect gets paid by the California energy utilities like PG&E for enticing households to reduce electricity usage during peak hours. This way the utilities can avoid firing up so called peaker plants, and the considerable savings are then shared with the Ohmconnect users.
Limited time offer: we’re giving away up to 1 million free thermostats (or $25 cash and 2 smart plugs) to new customers to make energy saving easy.
What is OhmConnect?
- Our free service rewards you for saving energy when it matters most. Join our community today and help prevent California 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:
