I'm out... just not worth it.
Ohmconnect target thresholds have become hyper-aggressive, and there is no way my house can meet them. I lose points practically every time, even with smart plug in use, vampire devices disconnected, stereo, TV and computers off, no A/C and minimal lighting. It's just not worth reducing to cave-dweller standards just for a measly buck and a half per event. I have already minimized my PG&E bill, and it looks like that's the best I can do.
Also, the ohmconnect.com website is really frustrating to use. All told, I just don't need the aggravation.
Good luck everyone, keep on saving!
