Short answer is no.One question I do have for those already on Agile... I have a display in my living room showing how much I have spent for the day/week/month... does that display show the real cost once you are on Agile taking into account the changing cost/kWh?
The IHD will display the tariff downloaded to the smart meter. The problem is that smart meters (inc SMETS2) were not designed with 30 minute ToU tariffs in mind. The ‘reconciliation’ is carried out by the supplier using the 30 minute usage data which is captured from the DCC once every 24 hours.The IHD not showing the correct pricing is a omission IMO and smacks of shortcuts in the design. Oh well, it is what it is. Fortunately I have a SolarEdge MODBus monitor with my solar PV system that records my use in 15 min intervals (both production and consumption).
You do realise I am a cheeky chap and was just trying to get a conversation going!You need to stop on the way home and take a long walk. If you get home at about 7 Agile will suit you perfectly.

Always make sure you can see the scale....
I think it's just what the boiler uses when it fires up and pumps the central heating.Cunningly removed in first post pic.. but was a complete 24hrs.
so what is that cyclic usage all the time then?
Just noticed Zarch posted info on tomorrow and shows lockdown affect on pricing. Just as well sun is going to offset with solar generation.
Could be the boiler. Did wonder if it was the fridge freezer, seems possible, but usually less of a sinewave (not of course). Maybe a combo of both.I think it's just what the boiler uses when it fires up and pumps the central heating.
I figured a lock down would/will probably mean people shutting off power generation and then it'd shift the price point back up, Currently sitting on 87% and probably will stay there for a while yet.
Yeah, we have one that draws about 200W at a time. I was having suspicions of problems with it at the time and plugged in a power meter. Uuuup the power went to 200W and I was thinking 'wow, something's gone bad'. Well, it had, the panel at the back had not been fitted properly when new and as the heater melted the ice on the evaporator matrix it pushed condensate into the freezer and it got worse and worse over time. It happened again recently, but knew what that was about this time around.Could be the boiler. Did wonder if it was the fridge freezer, seems possible, but usually less of a sinewave (not of course).

When we first got solar and owl intution, I could not fathom out why there were high spikes of consumption during the night. It was yonks before I found out.
The fridge/freezer is a frost free design and the freezer actually has a heater element at the rear (invisible) to clear the evaporator, which I had not appreciated.
My bad wording and not spending the time to fully comment. Doh. Should have been more explicit. Solar will fill our Powerwall2 up and offset that big peak. Cheap all day. Assume Zarch is saying the lack of business consumption is making prices cheaper since nearly everything has closed down, so little demand. Interesting to think just agile customers are really benefiting whereas others will no doubt be importing more elecy as home all day, so costing them more. At least the sun is warming properties up, so maybe less heating required for those that get solar warmth benefit.I thought tomorrow's price was looking low for most of the day, or have I misunderstood your comment?
