Offer Link [ohmconnect.com]

Free Google Nest Thermostat once you sign up and connect your utility! Once you connect your utility to your OhmConnect account and they confirm your eligibility, you'll get an email that sends you to their online store with the thermostat applied at checkout at no cost.

Valid for those with the following utility providers:
  • PG&E Customers (San Francisco Bay Area)
  • Southern California Edison Customers (Los Angeles Area)
  • San Diego Gas & Electric (San Diego Area)
*Start: 04/06/2021 7am PT. Limited time offer. New, unique customers only who connect their utility account and new Google Nest Thermostat to OhmConnect by 04/30/2021, and start saving energy with OhmConnect. While supplies last. Cannot be combined with other sign-up offers.

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.

Ohmconnect is legit. It's a third party service that monitors energy usage and rewards you if you stay under usage (on the flipside you can get penalized and points taken away). Enough points and you can request a payout via paypal or whatever. I used this at our last place. It helped us stay more conscious of our energy/electricity usage too

Have been using it for an year... Doesn't cost you anything. They give you points based on your usage reduction on particular days. These points can be cashed via paypal or Amazon Gift cards.

I believe you have to wait until OhmConnect gets final approval to connect to your utility. Mine still shows "pending". So it's not an instant process.

FYI_" Your utility must now confirm your eligibility. This generally takes a few days. Once that's done, you'll see an OhmHour come your way and start saving energy with OhmConnect. Your Google Nest Thermostat will then be waiting for you at no cost.
"

maybe email in a few days to verify your account is legit.?Confused

When can you cancel it without additional fees?
