My chances of winning are nil and I can make more use of the points. If I opt out of the prize OH, then it gives others a better chance. I can't use trips if I win. As someone who is on a fixed income, points make more sense to me. Thanks.
You could try the Mega-Only option
I switched to this on 4/1 after having 6 Prize OhmHours in a row. On 4/25 I received my first Mega OhmHour and the base points were 209 per kWh plus there was an additional Mega Bonus thrown in. The total overall points worked out to be around the same as 3 regular OhmHours.
As soon as summer comes around or I hear of regular OhmHours coming back I'll be switching back so I get as many "non-prize" OhmHours as possible to max earnings.
