OhmConnect work directly with Ontario's energy regulator, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), to monitor real-time conditions on the electricity grid. When it looks like energy usage may peak, the IESO works with Ohmconnect to reduce demand and avoid turning on additional power plants. In exchange for community providing relief during peak hours, they pay OhmConnect the savings. OhmConnect keeps 20% of that savings, and rewards the rest to those that sign up with OhmConnect.
Here’s how it works:
1. Sign up for OhmConnect and sync it with your online utility account through Toronto Hydro. You must have an online account with Toronto Hydro to qualify for OhmConnect. This needs to be done when you sign up, so have your utility info handy.
2. Receive energy usage notifications during “#OhmHours” — high-energy-consumption hours that trigger non-green power plants to activate in order to support the overtaxed grid.
3. Turn off your tv, lights, etc. until the #OhmHour is up.
4. Profit! OhmConnect rewards you up to $300/year for not contributing to the high demand that prompts unclean power sources to turn on.
For every person who signs up through a referral link, you’ll earn $20 when they reach "silver-status" saver.
