For some the scientific reasons to reduce energy consumption aren't enough incentive to switch off their appliances, which is why this app is offering cash rewards. Ohmconnect is a mobile application that lets homeowners know the best time to turn off their devices.

The timing is related to when "dirty power plants" are powering their homes. According to Springwise, major energy companies use a combination of power sources, which makes it difficult for customers concerned about their carbon footprint to detect where their exact energy comes from.

Ohmconnect aims to reduce energy consumption by monitoring energy use nationwide to determine what they call #OhmHour. Users gain points whenever they power down and participate in #OhmHour, which gets them cash.
