I've really mastered the art of setting timers. πŸ˜… Pretty much forced to, when electricity prices vary like this during the day:

A chart shows electricity prices varying between 0.35–5.53 Swedish krona per kilowatt-hour during 24 hours.

Should I start the washing machine or charge the car at the wrong hour, I will pay 15 times as much compared to being smart about it. 😱

@sod So is your pricing fully dynamic or do you have islands of stable pricing (eg midnight – 6am)?

@the It's fully dynamic. I pay whatever the current spot price on the European power market. That said, patterns evolve based on supply and demand. Electricity is cheaper at night and on weekends, for example. And windy days are usually good days.

@sod Man! At what point does a household battery (like the ones from Enphase or Tesla) become worthwhile?

@the I haven't made any actual calculations yet, but it's definitely there in the back of my head, along with solar cells and other solutions. Someday I hope to be less dependent on the electricity market and its ups and downs.

@sod The Total Cost of Ownership calculations are getting trickier in these times of higher inflation & interest rates, that’s for sure!
