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.

I got approved for SCE and got the same error as reported here. Then I saw on the side they said to click "I moved" and reconnect again. Well, guess what, now I'm back pending status. Urg.

Quote from TenderPenguin867 :
Did anyone get clarity on what happens if we do not connect the nest? Will they charge us for it or can we return it?
They changed the term to
" Customers must connect the new Nest Thermostat to their OhmConnect account within 30 days of delivery to avoid being charged a $99 promotional fee."

They had me do the same thing. Now I'm the same status as you. I don't understand why it's so difficult to do this.

I emailed them ([email protected]) last night regarding my status (Utility says "Connected" and Events says "Issue") and got this back from them today:

Quote :
Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out!

SCE recently underwent some data maintenance on their site, and we are seeing some residual fallout with customer's attempting to connect their utility with OhmConnect.

Rest assured we are working to remedy this issue. If a week passes and you still see utility "issue" on your dashboard or have not received an invitation to take part in an energy saving event, please reach back out and we would be happy to investigate this further.

Let us know if there is anything else we can help you with in the mean time.

Warmly,

Molly

Same SCE issue as everyone here. Back to pending status again too. I hope this doesn't screw up the free Nest promotion.

Same here. Hopefully they don't stop the promotion before we get verified!

Well that changes this considerably. Unless I find a good way of doing the C wire in my old place, I guess I better skip this. Or maybe I'll just install it and use it until the Li-Ion battery runs out... Thanks for finding that language.

Nvm, will try using this: https://www.amazon.com/Transforme...uage=en_US

Strange...I don't think people who have gotten the Nest link ever had to put on any payment information. How do they get charged if it's not connected?

I have got an email saying " Thank you for connecting your utility account. Your next step is to start saving energy by participating in events (hello OhmHours and AutoOhms🎉) and thus qualifying for your very own Google Nest Thermostat* ($129.99). "
They have collected all my information and now asking me to start participating in events !!( which I am planning to do anyways )
What a scam !!
Anybody with similar experience??

Same timeline for me. I had given up hope of it working.
