You will have to start with midnight. If your off-peak rate starts before midnight at 11:00 PM, you'll have to break that into two entries. One is 12 MN to 7:00 AM (our case), then at the end add 11:00 PM to 12:00 MN
Peak rate is from 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM weekdays, 3:00 PM to 7:00 PM weekends and holidays
Partial peak is from 7:00 am to 2:00 PM, and 9:00 pm to 11:00 PM weekdays except holidays.
All the rest are off-peak
Weekday Entries for the Volt:
first entry would be 12:00 MN to 7:00 AM, and tag it as off peak.
then my second entry would be 7:00 AM to 2:00 PM, tag it as mid-peak
then the third entry would be 2:00 PM to 9:00 PM, tag it as peak rate
then the fourth entry would be 9:00 PM to 11:00 PM, tag it as mid-peak
then the last entry would be 11:00 PM to 12:00 MN, tag it as off-peak
It is the same with weekend and holiday rates, where you break the off-peak rates into two entries. The peak rate is between 3:00 PM till 7:00 PM then the rest are off-peak, that is from 7:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Too bad, the Volt don't know if it's a holiday or not when the holiday falls on a weekday.
first entry 12 MN to 3:00 PM, off-peak
second entry 3 PM to 7 PM, peak
third entry 7PM to 12 MN, off-peak
Yes, fortunately, it's hassle free and too simple for me. There's the HERO and the PACE program to finance everything. You obviously missed my statement about the net metering. Do you want me to explain that to you? The net metering is extended up to 2019 for now.Simply? How much is the up-front cost to do that? Is the car near the solar installation during the day?
