We are PG&E /EBCE electricity customers on E6 TOU rate. On March 1 we change from 2 rate periods: “shoulder” (5-8pm) and “off-peak” (8 pm - 5 pm) to 3 rate periods. Unfortunately Tesla has no plans (as far as our PowerWall project manager knows) to enable the Tesla App to permit setting the 3 rate periods. Does anyone know if there’s anything another PowerWall App that can do this?
In addition, our off peak period is tiered. While the initial 1500 kWh is free or very inexpensive, the cost/kWh rapidly escalates with increased usage. Even though I agreed to let Tesla access our PGE usage in real time, the have not and don’t have plans to implement tiered usage to their algorithm, in order to maximize cost savings. Too bad.
