Auto update tariff data


#1

Hi,

I’ve been searching the forum for a way to auto update tariff data, because my tariff for import as well as export is based on the hourly spot (market) price of electricity. I couldn’t find a way, so I surmise it’s not a feature available.

The idea would be to be able to set up PVoutput to fetch and update tariff data automatically, from, say, https://www.nordpoolgroup.com/Market-data1/Dayahead/Area-Prices/ALL1/Hourly/?view=table

I also would like to upload tariff data into the API.

A bunch of new retailers in AUS are going to spot rate billing. Being able to import spot rates into the data feed with consumption would give excellent stats on actual results.

I would think you use your standard tariff config, unless you populate a tariff on the API, which overrides any tariff config you have for the system.
