Oh, there were armhf builds a few years ago and they appear to have dropped off the map.  So, we'll add those back into our travis script again.

Just a warning that the price is forecast to spike to about $1.20 after 5:30pm today.

That can happen to me for a few days sometimes.

This is what I see now:

Despite the recent spikes I'm still keen to give the Flick model a go.

 

As a rough guide, how much more are the line & Flick charges on top of the wholesale price quoted on em6live & similar? I saw earlier in the thread someone quoted 6.5c; is that about right?

I want to know that too. I paid 24.5/kWh and 30c daily on Genesis, net of discount. Now on EK its 23c and 83c plus free hour of power. (Very happy too)

 

I'd like to know the Flick equivalent. Spot + what other cents to give the same full c/kWh. And daily, in case that's mixed in.

 

I know it varies, but in non spike, the all up cost must have a general range? I've seen 10c quoted

You need to go onto the Flick website and look up the price schedule for your area. The Flick and line charges vary considerably depending on your plan and lines company.

@Resnick @tdgeek the pricing is on the Flick website, it varies between region. In Wellington from memory it tends to be around 10c/kwh plus the spot price plus the daily charge.

Indeed, many thanks! I don't know how I missed that, right there in front of me on the website embarassed.

 

 

 

Looks like I'll be paying 14c + spot per kWh.

Thanks

 

 

 

Mine, ChCh seem to be:

 

Daily 91.66c

 

Peak at 12.39c Plus Winter Peak at 21.46c= 33.85c /kWh

 

Offpeak 4.74c  /kWh

 

 

 

Is Spot that changes regularly, the Plus Winter Peak at 21.46c?

 

OffPeak and Peak remain at 4.74c/12.39c or do they vary also?

Spot changes all the time, including during offpeak times. Average for spot is around 6-7cents, but obviously not at the moment!

 

IME in Christchurch you can expect to pay more than a normal power company during winter peak (mornings and evenings), but save a shedload the rest of the time. Especially as weekends are offpeak which is when we tend to do washing/roasts/etc

In my post 21.46c is spot?

 

Edit and the other variables are steady?

 

Peak at 12.39c

 

 Offpeak 4.74c 

 

These two stay the same day in and day out?

21.46c is the fixed per unit charge during winter weekday mornings and evenings

 

4.74c is the fixed per unit charge during nights and weekends

 

12.39c is the fixed per unit charge during any other times (e.g weekday days or mornings/evenings outside of winter)

 

These will generally be revised annually as the lines company reviews it's charges (same as any company - even so called fixed price contracts).

 

So your per unit charge will = (spot price) + (21.46 or 4.74 or 12.39). If we assume spot price is 10cents (this is higher than average), then your per unit charge will be 31.46, 14.74, or 22.39 total charge per unit depending on time of day. Plus GST.

Cheers. What confused me was where the spot price is, the far right column looked like small numbers and dots but blown up to 210% it say Plus Spot

I'm in Hawkes Bay with 2 meters, controlled and uncontrolled.  Here's the pricing schedule.  I switched to Flick in April on the Regular Uncontrolled/Controlelled Standard user plan.  In June I got my detailed data from Flick and calculated if I would be better off on the Smart (Peak/Off-Peak) Standard plan.  Based on the pricing schedule info it looked like I would have saved about $15 over the two months on the Smart plan, so this Monday I switched (waited till after the school holidays when I thought we'd be more likely to be using during peak times).  My Flick dashboard started showing the new rates (up during peak, lower during off peak times) on Wednesday.  According to the price schedule the times continue on the weekend, but this morning the price on my dashboard never increased to show the peak price during the peak hours.  I called Flick to see if the schedule is incorrect as perhaps all weekend is actually off peak, but the woman I spoke to didn't know, and no one is in the office on the weekends who could answer the question.  Does anyone here know if in Hawkes Bay weekends are considered off-peak, all weekend?
