Tutorial: set the Tiered rate billing mode in the Home assistant

How to set the Tiered electricity price billing mode in the Home Assistant

Abstract: use one energy meter (brand IAMMETER) to show how to set the Tiered electricity price billing mode in the Home assistant.

Please note: this is a universal tutorial about setting the Tiered electricity price billing template in the Home Assistant. It does not ask to use a specific brand of energy meter.

Video tutorial: set the tiered rate billing mode in the home assistant

This is the effect of displaying the Tiered electricity price billing information in the dashboard.

Integrate Energy meter

In this chapter, we use IAMMETER`s energy meter as the example hardware. This tutorial is not related to a specific brand, you can use your own energy meter in your hand.

Add the repository of IAMMETER from the HACS

Click HACS, search "IAMMETER".

Add the Tiered electricity price billing template from a Yaml file.

click "File editor"

image-20221209161145643

add a new YAML, named "tiered.yaml"

Add the following configuration in "tiered.yaml"

You can also download the "tiered.yaml" from the github here

Configure the Dashboard(optional)

This chapter just gives a dashboard example to show the Tiered electricity price billing effect. It is not a necessary step for the Tiered electricity price billing, you can also use your own dashboard to display the Tiered electricity price effect.
