OhmConnect

Earn money for Van Meter while teaching our kids to save energy and help the planet!

Join OhmConnect’s new Van Meter Team online just in time for the heat waves of summer!

1) Sign up and participate for free at http://bit.ly/ohmvanmeter
2) Receive alerts for roughly 2 hours per week during which peak energy usage is anticipated.
3) Reduce your energy consumption during these hours to not only reduce carbon emissions but also to help earn up to $10,000 for Van Meter’s HSC to use towards directly benefiting our kids.

When we reduce peaks in our collective energy usage, the electrical grid can share energy from carbon-free sources like solar, wind, and water and avoid supplementing from the worst-polluting power plants. Brainstorm with your kids ways your family can reduce energy consumption.
Ideas:
● Turn off the AC for that hour.
● Postpone running the laundry machine or dishwasher for that hour.
● Turn off lights and electronics and get outside with the kids for that hour.
