What is OhmConnect?
It's a free service that pays you to save energy times when there's a lot of demand on the grid. When the grid is stressed, either one of two things can happen. 1) Dirty and inefficient 'peaker' power plants can turn on or 2) people can save energy. A growing number of states and municipalities would prefer to pay people for saving energy because it's cheaper, cleaner, and puts money back in the pockets of community members.
OhmConnect coordinates and combines the energy savings across thousands of households and small businesses when it matters most to the grid. The grid pays OhmConnect for those savings, and then OhmConnect passes along those payments to participants.
This is why you are required to connect your utility account to receive cash for participating: OhmConnect must measure your energy savings to receive payments from the grid operators.
