      Our power company (FPL) bills us in a tiered structure. There is one rate for the first 1000 kWh and then a second rate for anything over that. I would greatly appreciate support being added for this so that my usage rate would match what my bill is.

      Hello @mandiola, Thanks for you feedback on tiered pricing. Providing customers the ability to enter tiered pricing is currently on our development roadmap, but right now we don’t have a specific release date.

      We appreciate your feedback and hope you understand that we’re working very hard to prioritize the many enhancements that have been requested.

      This is a huge request for me too. I hate the tiered system, but my municipal energy plant also bills in a three tiered structure. The more you use, the more you pay…

      Yes, it would be almost mandatory to have a tiered rate in order to calc my costs. Any progress? I will soon be a new user. Thanks

      Hello @jdlyerly as more and more utilities add time of use billing options we know this feature is a must.  We are working as quickly as we can to get this software enhancement out.   Thanks for your feedback!

      Adding my +1 to this as well.

      It would be very nice to be able to specify tiered pricing based on local utility.

      Adding my +1 for TOU options.

      There seems to be 2 requirements – tiered usage (TU) rates and time of use (TOU) rates  The sample of TU was explained above. I need at 3 tier TOU – non-peak, mid-peak and peak rates with time ranges with a minimum of 2 time ranges per tier. The utility current has defined the TOU as:

      1. non-peak: 1 range -7pm-7am

      2. mid-peak summer: 2 ranges – 7-11am, 5-7pm

      3. mid-peak winter: 1 range – 11am-5pm

      4. peak summer: 1 range – 11am-5pm

      5. peak winter: 2 ranges – 7-11am, 5-7pm

      6. weekends&holidays: 1 range – 12am-12am (24 hrs)

      7. All time ranges and rates must be enterable

      8. Winter/Summer date ranges must be enterable/selectable – specify months only would be fine – day of the month is not required

      e.g. Summer months: May 1- Oct 31; Winter months: Nov 1-Apt 30

      Let me know if your TOU requirement is aligned with this. At a minimum 2 ranges per TOU tiers are required for mid-peak and peak.  If I have to I could update the time ranges and rate at the beginning of summer and winter but that would be a pain

      New user her on Vue2 as of last week. I was surprised this was not in the app already. I trolled the site for quiet awhile before I bought and saw a couple Blog posts about TOU. Now I have the hardware all installed and its not there.

      Not the end of the world just surprised.

      It’s pretty sad that this hasn’t been added yet. It is a very basic and fundamental feature. I would have returned my unit back in February  had I known that very little development was going to be taking place.

    • #6461 Report Abuse

      Another vote for TOU and TU (configurable as one or the other or both simultaneously, since our wonderful PG&E likes to make things as complicated as possible).

      This would be a great enhancement.  We also have a tiered & seasonal rate structure.

      Summer – May through October Usage

      First 600 kWh …..9.4088¢/kWh
      Next 400 kWh …..11.8088¢/kWh
      Over 1,000 kWh …..12.6088¢/kWh

      Nonsummer – November through April Usage

      First 600 kWh …..9.4088¢/kWh
      Next 400 kWh …..9.0088¢/kWh
      Over 1,000 kWh …..8.6088¢/kWh
