Please tell me if I am setting my export Tariff correctly.
Suppliers rates are -
First 5kWh per day. 10c/kWh
Remaining kWh per day 5c/kWh
I do not have a smart meter so the supplier calculates the average daily export figures.
Since there is currently only monthly export tariff option in IAMMETER I have extrapolated the daily export data to an “average” month by multiplying daily figures by 30.4
The monthly rates become:
First 152kWh per month. $15.16
Remaining 500 kWh per month $25.00
Here is my configuration entry for Export Tariff -.
So for the first 152kWh each month I get $15.16
For the next 500kWh each month I get $25 or pro rata thereof. (with a 3kW system the best I can expect to export per month would be 400kWh in total.
Do the settings below look to be correct for my case?
I think you may have confused the concept of Electricity tariff, which should mean the unit price, that is, 0.1$/kWh or 0.05$/kWh. So I think it should be set like this:
I think there may be some deviation with your actual data after this setting. If the daily export power can exceed 5kWh, there will be no deviation.
You are right Wilson - I should not have been multiplying the unit price - only the Units per teir per day.
So to restate feedin tariff -
- Daily Teir 1 - $0.10/kWh for the first 5 kWh exported
- Daily Teir 2 - $0.05/kWh for remainder in excess of 5kWh
Assuming a 30 day month -
- Monthy Teir 1 is $0.10/kWh for the first 150 kWh exported
- Monthy Teir 2 is $0.05/kWh for the remainder in excess of 150kWh exported.
I think I have also previously mis-interpreted the function of the units column in the Export Tariff section.
Perhaps it could be made clearer by having a FROM column and a TO column
So what I have entered now is -
the first 150 kWh per month will earn $0.10/kWh
everything in excess of 150kWh will ear $0.05/kWh
Does that look better?
