A New Startup Will Pay You For Efficiently Using Your Electricity
With time, there has been a massive increase in the demand for electricity. Governments have been trying to find sources in terms of solar energy, wind energy, and other renewable resources. In such tough times, a new startup called OhmConnect has joined hands with multiple electricity providers to understand the peak times when maximum electricity is used. These hours are being classified as OhmHours. The app has a user base that gets notified about OhmHours. The users are encouraged by awarding them with benefits for saving electricity during OhmHours.
The startup has added more of a gamification concept to the system. Users earn points for their reduced consumption and can unlock tiers (Silver, Gold, Platinum) and bonus multipliers for successfully completing multiple OhmHours in a row.
The startup is now working on a model where it can remotely switch off users’ devices with prior permission using smart plugs. Though OhmConnect has clarified that all data collected is secure, there are major security concerns. Multiple other models that use OhmConnect seem to be working in tandem with all the smart home devices which the users have. This will help create a more energy efficient-environment not only saving billions of dollars but also reducing the carbon footprint!
