    Default Smart Meters and Time of Use Tariffs

    Hey All,

    We recently moved into a new home, and being Energex is our energy supplier. Just the other day we installed our Tesla Charger and signed up with OVO Energy - they offer 8c TOU between 12.00am and 6.00am...

    How does this work - at this stage it is connected same of our general power, but am I correct in saying we need some form of relay for the tariff to actually work??
    I wasn't home when it was installed, and the electrician was a bit vague over the phone

    Cheers

    no relay any power used during that time is recorded and billed at that amount.

    you have peak - shoulder off peak. so to get that cost you will need to either manually switch it on at
    that hour to charge or get a sparky to inslall a timer setup to it.
    dont say linux if i wanted it id install it

    I did that with my HWS,no off peak,but I installed a timer heating for 3 hrs,.I am a sparky, so having visitors, I just switch it on longer and have enough hot water.There's 3 of us and the bill is usually under $400.00 a quarter.Electric cooking.
