Get paid to save electricity with OhmConnect

RMEA customers qualify to get $50 just for signing up…

OhmConnect is a free service that rewards California customers for saving energy. When you sign up, you’ll receive alerts when energy is most expensive and gives off the most pollution. If you save electricity during this time, OhmConnect will reward you with gift cards or even cash via Paypal. That’s in addition to the savings on your utility bill by using less. It’s a win-win!

How can OhmConnect pay you to reduce your energy consumption?

OhmConnect bundles the energy savings of all of its users and sells it back to the California Independent System Operator’s (CAISO’s) energy markets. CAISO pays OhmConnect for the energy that wasn’t used. This type of program is called “demand response,” because it represents customers responding to heightened demand on the grid. In addition to helping improve grid reliability, demand response programs help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Rancho Mirage is one of many California cities encouraging residents to save energy with OhmConnect. Because when one of us helps, it helps all of us.

Limited time offer: Rancho Mirage residents are eligible to receive $50 for joining OhmConnect.
