Energy: Add fixed daily cost

Feeds in perfectly. I use the daily cost and usage which isn’t to far out to what my provider is showing.

My energy dashboard (this is based on @sean.mcgee’s solution, but modified to be 0.001kWh per daily charge instead of 1kWh… so it doesn’t skew the charts):

how you did it, we have the same system in my country and I need to know how for my project.

As above.
I added two helpers to set both tariffs.
Another helper to set the “first target value” ( for me, its the first 2kwh at high price, then remaining at low price)

I then have a template to switch over to tariff two once the 2kwh has been reached

can you explain to me step by step, which type of helper u are used and what you did with automation because just I used home assistant from week ago

Hi, apologies for the late reply but I’ve done a step by step ‘how-to’ - HERE

Please let me know your thoughts… Hope it helps!

Unfortunately, i am getting an error
