I would like to get some help. The idea is to make a flow where at midnight for the next day the time/moment is calculated with the lowest energy (electicity) price.
I like to have a number from 0-23 stating the hour when the price is the lowest.
This number then can be used ( as time) to send as a push notification to everyone in the household so they can start the washmachine, dishwasher and charges at the best price.
Eg if the number is 3 then the message is “” at 3 it is the best time to start charging"
More sophisticated would be to have at midnight calculated a small array stating the best 5 hours with the best pricing.
going from cheapest to more expensive. This could look like a string 1,3,13,15,11,14.
Message would then be something like " today the best moment to charge are 1,3,13,15,11,14."
Who has any idea to make this in a flow. I tried to create something making use of PBTH but without succes.
Thanks for the flow. My challange is before this flow. I need to get a time when the lowest price is valid. Due to a dynamic contract this can be any time during the day. I do not want to trigger on a fixed price, only the lowest during teh day🙂
Then you should take another look . It’s based on “when the price is lower than xxx”. Besides, the flow trigger is just an idea/example.
The power by the hour app is very neat imho. Here’s some flow triggercard choices.
