    Not many people would be opposed to saving money especially when it’s as easy as flipping a light switch.

    That’s basically all California residents have to do to earn up to $300 a year for reducing their electricity usage. According to The Penny Hoarder, the Ohmconnect program rewards individuals for saving energy for an hour a week.

    1. To do so, residents in the state of California must sign up for OhmConnect and sync their online utility accounts via PG&E, Southern California Edison and SDG&E. Those who sign up earn an easy $20 for syncing their accounts.
    2. Users will then receive energy usage notifications to minimize their power during high-energy consumption hours called “#OhmHours.” During the #OhmHour, households can turn off their lights, televisions and other electronics to help decrease energy demand.
    3. Since high energy consumption periods activate non-green power plants to support the demand, it’s costly for the California electricity market and damaging to the environment. That’s why OhmConnect is getting paid to help reduce energy demand and passing on the savings to consumers.  

    As a result, users earn money for not triggering unclean power sources. They also save their own money for slashing power usage and are able to earn points for referrals through the program. In conclusion, everyone wins and Californians are rewarded for going green.
