If you have a utility account with PG&E, SDG&E or Southern California Edison, which cover nearly every county in California, listen up.

OhmConnect will pay you up to $300 to help save energy when the California grid gets stretched. These earning periods are called “#OhmHours.” During this time, your job is to simply use less power.

Go outside. Take the dog for a walk. Or take the kids to the park. If you can successfully reduce your energy usage, OhmConnect will pay you!

Here’s How to Get up to $300/Year

  1. Sign up for OhmConnect, and sync it with your online utility account through PG&E, SDG&E or Southern California Edison. It’s completely free, but you must have an online account with one of these electric companies to qualify.
  2. Get notified when your home’s energy is polluting the most, and your electricity use for about 30 minutes. Head outside or, at least, turn the TV off until you get the next notification. Heck, you can even play games on your phone during this hour — just resist plugging in any electronics.
  3. Get paid. OhmConnect will pay you up to $300 a year for your help.

#OhmHours only occur a couple of times a week, and in addition to earning money, you might see a reduction in your power bill each month — plus you’ll get some sunshine!

We recently interviewed Tanya Williams, a 45-year-old stay-at-home mom, who’s been paid over $1,700 through OhmConnect!
