California residents can sync their utility accounts to a program called OhmConnect.
It actually helps them earn money for reducing their electricity consumption -- in addition to the money they save by cutting back on power use. Members also earn points (i.e., dollars) for referrals and sharing, which helps make the whole California community more energy efficient!
OhmConnect's designed to help you get just a little bit greener. . . and reward you for your efforts along the way.
Here's how it works.
1. Sign up for OhmConnect and sync it with your online utility account through PG&E, SDG&E or Southern California Edison. You must have an online account with one of these electric companies to qualify for OhmConnect. You'll earn your first $20 just for syncing your account.
2. Receive energy usage notifications during "#OhmHours" -- high-energy-consumption hours that trigger non-green power plants to activate in order to support the overtaxed grid.
3. Turn off your tv, lights, etc. until the #OhmHour is up.
4. Profit! OhmConnect rewards you up to $300/year for not contributing to the high demand that prompts unclean power sources to turn on.
