Updates to streaks and status
We started OhmConnect to show that when lots of people do just a little, it adds up to real and positive impact for the grid — and it's working! But the world of energy sharing is complicated (and new) and three years in, we need to better align how we pay you, our users, with how the grid pays us. And so, we're making some changes to streaks and status.
Streak bonuses will now be capped at 20 #OhmHours. You’ll earn a 5% bonus for each successful #OhmHour you have in a row up, to 20 #OhmHours. At and above 20 #OhmHours, your streak count will continue to go up and you’ll continue to get a 100% bonus, but not more. If you break your streak above 20 #OhmHours, we’ll soften the blow and you’ll only fall back to a streak of 10, instead of 0. Read more about streak rewards here.
We’re also introducing a new status: Diamond 💎. Savvy Ohmers who save 80% or more on your forecast, will now receive a 2.5X multiplier. Read more about how status rewards work here.
We know some folks will be upset about these changes, and we want to hear from you! Our president, Cadir will be hosting an Ask Me Anything on Facebook Live tomorrow (Wednesday 11/14) at 4pm. We hope you'll join and ask questions! The more we hear from you all, the better we can support everyone who uses OhmConnect.
