ComEd Hourly Pricing


The ComEd Hourly Pricing program is an optional program available to ComEd electric subscribers which charges customers a variable rate for electricity supply based on current demand rather than a traditional fixed rate. Live prices are published here and also via an API which we can integrate as a sensor in Home Assistant.

There are two price feeds available: the 5-minute price and current hour average price.

To use this sensor in your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
sensor:
  - platform: comed_hourly_pricing
    monitored_feeds:
      - type: five_minute
      - type: current_hour_average

Configuration Variables

monitored_feedslistRequired

Feeds to monitor.

typelistRequired

Name of the feed.

five_minute

The latest 5-minute price in cents.

current_hour_average

The latest current hour average price in cents.

namestring(Optional)

Custom name for the sensor.

offsetfloat(Optional, default: 0.0)

The pricing feeds provide only the supply cost of the electricity. The offset parameter allows you to provide a fixed constant that will be added to the pricing data to provide a more accurate representation of the total electricity cost per kWh.
