OhmConnect pays you to save energy during #OhmHours. The state requires that we prove that you actually reduced energy, and to do that, we need SCE to send us your home energy data.
How do I do this?
It's super simple. Log into your account and go to your settings page. Locate your utility information under "Utility Details" to find a teal button that says "Connect Utility"
From here, you will be prompt to confirm your zip code and utility service. Please confirm that information.
You will be redirected to SCE's website. Please log into your SCE account and it will direct your to read your authorization before submitting. Be sure to read over everything and make sure it is linking to the correct account number and house address.
Click "I agree to authorize" once you have read and understand the terms of your authorization. You will be redirected back to our dashboard.
If you see an error message like this:
Please try refreshing the page because the website is just trying to redirect you and got a little stuck along the way.
Tips & Tricks & Other Notes
- Great news - we don't ever store your utility credentials! So don't worry about any issues sharing your credentials. We don't have access and will never do anything with them.
- Select your current address if there are multiple available under the "Select service account" drop-down. When in doubt, select them all.
- We are required by the state to receive and submit billing, meter, interval usage, program participation, and customer information to be able to pay you for reducing energy. None of this information includes things like your Social Security number or payment information.
It includes data points like other energy efficiency programs you may have signed up for in the past, if you have gas or electric accounts set up, the meter ID associated with your physical meter, how fast your meter collects your data, and historical data, which the state uses to calculate your forecast.
Thanks for signing up with us! This process can take up to 7 days to complete. If this is taking longer than 7 days to complete, please try re-authorizing your account! Follow this FAQ on how to do that.
