We’ve been using Ohm Connect since its inception. It’s a great way for California, Texas, and New York residents to conserve power during heavy usage times, save on your power bill, and earn cash and gift cards.
Texas and New York joined Ohm Connect back in April, but we Southern California residents have been conserving power and saving with Ohm Connect for years! ‘ve been using it since 2016.
And to prove it’s legit, here are screenshots showing that I’ve cashed out $90 to Paypal this month!
And I’ve also cashed out $20 in Amazon Gift Cards this month! I’m saving Amazon Gift cards to do holiday gift shopping later in the year.
Joining Ohm Connect is easy and quick. To get started, click here. You’ll need access to your gas/electric/power account handy, so I recommend doing this at home. And when it’s time to conserve power, you can opt into receiving texts or emails- whichever you prefer. Ohm Connect with contact you the day before to give you the heads up.
Ohm Connect is available to Southern CA residents who have the following power companies: Pacific Gas & Electric, Southern California Edison, and San Diego Gas and Electric.
In New York, Ohm Connect is available to those with ConEd.
And in Texas, Ohm Connect is available to everyone.
As always, I only post about products and services I personally use and I feel are a good fit for my family and my readers. Please refer to my disclosure page.
We’ve been using Ohm Connect for years. In addition to saving power during times of high demand on the power grid, we’ve saved money on our power bill and earned rewards from Ohm Connect.
I’m excited that Ohm Connect has decided to open its program to those living in Texas and New York as well.
Once you sign up, you will be alerted when the demand for energy increases (Either via text or email- your choice). If you cut down on power usage during those peak times, you will not only reduce your power bill but also receive points from Ohm Connect that can be redeemed for cash back via PayPal or gift cards (I usually get Target Gift cards).
And you can connect your smart home devices to help you save- the Ohm Connect App walks you through everything! It’s super simple.
We’ve earned $25 in rewards so far in 2022!
