Wherever electricity is more expensive at times of high demand (peak tariff) than in periods when demand is low (off-peak tariff), electricity customers with a TESVOLT battery storage system and corresponding tariff can automatically consume more at cheaper times and save money when the cost is high.
A side benefit of this is that it also evens out and stabilises the load on the public utility grid.
1. Time-dependent use of storage system functions
Various functions of the storage system as well as installations connected to the circuit can be controlled and switched on and off by the Time of Use (ToU) application on a time-dependent basis in accordance with requirements and demand.
ToU is also part of our Multi-use application and can be combined with peak shaving (PS) and self-consumption optimisation (SCO).
2. Use of fixed specific charging and discharging time windows for the storage system
Time of Use can be used to set different time periods in which the storage system is charged or energy is drawn from it.
In some cases, energy suppliers offer electricity at different rates depending on the time of day. If demand for electricity from the utility grid is high at a particular time, the expensive peak tariff applies, whereas the cheaper off-peak tariff applies at times of lower consumption. Time of Use can be used to manage the battery storage system so that it is charged during off-peak tariff times and used to supply power at peak tariff times.
