The easyEnergy integration creates a number of sensor entities for both gas and electricity prices.
Energy market prices
In terms of electricity you get two separate services, easyEnergy uses separate prices for electricity that you use (buy) or return (sell). Every day around 14:00 UTC time, the new prices are published for the following day.
next hourelectricity market price
- Average electricity price of the day
- Lowest energy price
- Highest energy price
- Time of day when the price is highest
- Time of day when the price is at its lowest
- Percentage of the current price compared to the maximum price
Gas market price
For the dynamic gas prices, only entities are created that display the
next hour price because the price is always fixed for
24 hours; new prices are published every morning at 05:00 UTC time.
