You may have seen an ad from The Penny Hoarder that seems to state that OhmConnect will pay you $300 for connecting. The ad you saw likely looks like this:
The ad leads to this post from Penny Hoarder:
In this post, Penny Hoarder makes it clear that you can make UP TO $300, or even more over the course of a year through OhmConnect, depending on how much power you usually consume in a given time-frame. All users will experience greatly different payouts depending on the size of their home, and how much power they usually use. It's all based on your baseline, and how much you save during your #OhmHours.
Typically, most users do end up cashing out around $300 over the course of a year with #OhmConnect's free service so there's nothing to lose!
