I am just a starter in Home Assistent and am already very happy with what I have achived up to now. Reading sensors, and doing some simple automation jobs.
My goal is a lot harder to achive I guess, but maybe not for the Home Assistant Guru’s over here
Some energy companies in the Netherlands offer contracts with flexible energy-tarifs. When you have a smart meter in your home (like I have), these companies can read-out your energy-usage per hour. You will then be billed for your energy-usage of each hour according to the energy-tariff of that corrensponding hour. The flexible energy-tarifs can be found on the site of the EPEX(APX).
How can I read these tarifs in Home Assistant and determine what the lowest 3 tariffs are during that day?
And how can I trigger the electric boiler on that?
