Saving energy is important, not only for our environment but for saving money! But what if I told you that you could MAKE money from saving energy? That's what OhmConnect does. OhmConnect alerts you when dirty, expensive power plants switch on nearby and pays you for reducing your electricity use. It also shows you which things in your home are using the most energy to help you learn how to save more energy! Sadly, this does only apply to California residents. You get $20 just for signing up and bonuses as you reach higher levels for a potential of $75 in bonuses alone!
Here are the bonuses:
500 points for Silver
2000 points for Gold5000 points for Platinum
That’s right-- you get paid as you level up. If you reach Platinum, you’ll have earned a total of 7500 points ($75, or up to a $90 gift card to their Store)! You can also join teams to have some friendly competition! If you are in the San Francisco East Bay, join my team East Bay Folks!
Of course you also get points for saving energy during the OhmHours.
What is an OhmHour?
Once or twice per week, a local power plant near your home turns on. This isn’t any ordinary power plant. It produces 2 - 3x the carbon emissions that a typical power plant generates and spews out local pollution into the surrounding neighborhoods. Why does this power plant turn on? It’s quite simple actually.
The grid produces just enough electricity to meet the demand of all those users.
That amount of electricity is calculated by looking at the average historical usage in the area.
Sometimes people use more electricity than is expected and another power plant has to turn on to prevent a blackout.
If you were running the electricity grid, wouldn’t you prefer to pay people to use less electricity rather than pay a power plant to turn on? The grid stays balanced, less pollution is emitted, and best of all, people get paid instead of power plants. It’s a win-win-win.
That’s how OhmConnect works. Your household electricity reductions are sold back into the grid, a dirty power plant stays off, and we pass back those earnings to you. It’s never been easier to live green and make green.
