Bronze #OhmHours have now been released! Anyone who has a status of Bronze must TELL US HOW YOU'RE SAVING in order for a chance to win prizes. You won't earn or lose points, but you've got to respond to your alerts! Read more in the post.

How do I participate an #OhmHour as a Bronze user?

Kate from OhmConnectKate from OhmConnect Posts: 807Administrator

We've opened up #OhmHours for everyone! The demand for these times to literally "unplug" has been overwhelming. Now, all you need is a zip code and an email address.

Since we don't have your meter data, we can't pay you, but you can earn prizes.

To participate, respond to your email/text/app alert and Let Us Know How You're Saving. Check off the activities you're doing (or let us know) and then click "I'm saving." If you don't your participate won't count and you won't earn the chance at a spin. Good news: no negative points are issued for Bronze #OhmHours, so if you can't make it, that's fine!

  • Im fine with the new program however it is rather upsetting that because it wasnt known why my points werent working I basically just lost those points. I cant even see if I did a good job or not...if i cant see how well im doing, whats the point?

    @wejustjazzy@gmail.com what level are you? Which utility do you have? And is it connected to OC and have you been approved by your utility? Or do you have a utility that isn't SCE, PGE or SDGE?

    Also, what was the problem you were having with your points?
  • Son, you've actually responded to me before on another post. I'm SCE and my points weren't being updated for over a month. I am on the bronze level but I believe before I was on gold. I look at what it takes to move back up but I don't see what I really need to do and now I don't know how much i'm saving because I can't see it. I only see how many participated. Outside of shutting my power off at the switch I can't tell if i'm saving anything now. smh

    @wejustjazzy@gmail.com let's keep things friendly here please...I can sense your frustration and for that I'm sorry.

    If you're in Bronze, this means that you either have an ineligible utility, a competing program, or we don't have meter data. The Tune-Up Page should tell you what action you need to take.

    Since this is specific to your account, let's take this offline. Feel free to reach out to me from the Support link.

    How do you participate in ohm hours
  • Kate from OhmConnectKate from OhmConnect Posts: 807Administrator

    @Leahperez1 as a Bronze user, let us know how you're saving when you get the alert! Then, do everything you can to reduce your energy usage!

  • Its working!!! Thank you so much Son!

  • We just added a new thermostat. But we normally turn everything off and play board games
  • 1'st timer here.. not quite sure if I'm doing this correctly, so any tips are greatly appreciated!
    I "think" I am bronze, but not positive!
    I am saving by turning all my power strips off.
  • How long will it take to get my points for signing up?

    It depends. Did you already complete the application (aka CISR) and get approval from your utility to participate?

    Actually, what level are you and who is your electric provider? Silver - you're good and it's just a matter of time to get points. Bronze - there is still some additional action you or your utility need to take for you to get to silver and start collecting points.

    No one gets points when at the carbon or bronze level. Need to be at silver or higher i.e. Gold or Platinum

    If I have SDGE and they already approved me, How do I get to Silver?

  • That Son Of A BitzThat Son Of A Bitz Union CityPosts: 479Moderator

    It looks like you've done all of the things to get to Silver. How long ago did you get confirmation that SG&E approved you? You should see your level go from bronze to silver shortly. If not, please contact OC support directly and then come back to the forums and share what you learned if you think it will help others who may be in the same situation.
