Forecast. If you’ve been with OhmConnect for a while, you’ve probably seen this term before. You have also probably wondered at some point, “what exactly is a forecast?” This week’s blog post will demystify your forecast and show how OhmConnect uses it to calculate your #OhmHour points.
You may have heard of an energy crisis brewing in the Los Angeles region this summer. An enormous methane gas leak erupted late last year causing the natural gas storage facility in Aliso Canyon to shut down. Many of the power plants that relied on its gas won’t be able to fire up this summer. This means energy shortages and potential blackouts for the LA region. Continue reading “Angels of Aliso”

We’ve seen forecasts for heatwaves across California, so don’t be surprised if you see an #OhmHour early next week.
With the summer season heating up, we thought it would be a good time to recap some of the #OhmHour 2.0 updates. Since launching the new #OhmHours, our community has seen an average of 10x more points awarded per event! This is fantastic news and is helping spread the idea about getting paid to save energy all across California. Continue reading “Summer is heating up!”
Our community is familiar with those ‘polluting peaker plants’ and the greenhouse gases they emit, such as carbon dioxide.
After all, we earn #OhmHour points for saving electricity when those offending power plants start spewing CO2 into the atmosphere. Continue reading “Aliso Canyon Update”
Our first week of new #OhmHours is behind us and we had an #OhmHour which spanned almost all of California this past Tuesday.
Data has started trickling in, so let’s take a closer look. Our community members earned approximately 10x the points during this #OhmHour as they would have during our past #OhmHours! Continue reading “It’s alive! #OhmHour 2.0 is alive!”
We launched #OhmHour to pay Californians for using less energy from dirty power plants.
It’s a simple idea that has spread quickly across the state. Based on feedback from our growing community, we’re excited to preview some upcoming changes to #OhmHour starting on June 23rd.
