Tibber


The tibber integration provides a sensor with the current electricity price if you are a Tibber customer. If you have a Tibber Pulse or Watty it will also show the electricity consumption in real-time. You get a sensor for monthly consumption, monthly cost, and monthly peak hour. If you do have a real-time meter it is updated once every hour, otherwise it is updated once per day. Statistics with hourly consumption and cost data is generated that can be used in the Energy Dashboard (the ids are tibber:energy_consumption_HOMEID and tibber:energy_totalcost_HOMEID). If you produce energy there are also statistics with hourly production and profit data generated which can also be used there (the ids are tibber:energy_production_HOMEID and tibber:energy_profit_HOMEID).

Electricity price

The electricity price can be used to make automations. The sensor has a max_price and min_price attribute, with max and min price for the current day. Here is an example to get a notification when the price is above 90% of the maximum price for the day:

- alias: "Electricity price"
  trigger:
    platform: time_pattern
  # Matches every hour at 1 minutes past whole
    minutes: 1
  condition:
    condition: template
    value_template: '{{ float(states('sensor.electricity_price_hamretunet_10')) > 0.9 * float(state_attr('sensor.electricity_price_hamretunet_10', 'max_price')) }}'
  action:
   - service: notify.pushbullet
     data:
       title: "Electricity price"
       target: "device/daniel_telefon_cat"
       message: "The electricity price is now {{ states('sensor.electricity_price_hamretunet_10') }}"
