How to Participate

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:


It just takes two minutes! This allows us to track how much energy you can save. Your data is secure and participating will not affect your utility plan. You can opt out any time.


You'll be notified of energy-saving events around once per week. Use as little power as possible for maximum earnings.


Redeem your earnings in our Rewards Marketplace or cash out via Paypal. It's that easy!

Because "It Just Works"

We value our customers and put you first; it is about your life and your family, which is why we continuously work on being able to provide you with a great service that allows you to not only save energy and the planet, but also reward you for your efforts.

“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, SCE and ConEd, 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 and New York make 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

Chart showing energy prices vary by hour

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.
