Save Energy And Earn Money With OhmConnect

Have you heard of this site? I just learned about it today and it seems like such an amazing idea and with Earth day just passed this is one more way we can focus on helping out. It’s free to sign up and use and even if your utility company isn’t on their list, like mine, you can still earn money by helping to spread the word.

When I first read about it I really didn’t know what it was. I had been on Pinterest last night and you know how that goes… Well, this morning I got up early and went back to look over a few tabs I had left open on my laptop. The one for OhmConnect was one of the first that I decided to check out. (I’ve also done a little research to make sure this isn’t a scam and from what I’ve seen they aren’t and I’ll post links to some of the articles at the end of this post.)

Here’s a screenshot of just how easy it is:


They have a revolutionary way of helping us to avoid using ‘dirty’ energy and help us to maximize our ‘clean’ energy. Many families use these times to unplug and reconnect, what a great idea! Don’t just take my word for it, go ahead and check it out today!

And here’s those links I promised to other articles that talk about OhmConnect:
