Topic: Brultech / Calculated stream...

Sam would it be possible to add the stream name into the "today's cost" gadget. This would be helpful if tracking costs from different streams. The gadget as it stands right now simply states "today's cost" and while there is options for "title" and "notes" neither is actually displayed on the gadget in the dashboard.

On most of the other gadgets the stream title is included with the gadget on the dashboard. Currently I use the "today cost" gadgets to track my mains cost and also use it to track my geothermal cost and solar production dollars generated.  Since I have them in separate dashboards it's a little easier to know which is which but if I placed them into a single dashboard  it would be hard to figure out which one is which.

I suppose it is a little embarrasing...  I don't even know what they mean or how they work either 

Perhaps a grand unified view of posts across all forums sorted by last post date could be the answer?

Topic: Brultech / Calculated stream...

Hey All,

I know this nifty little problem... and have deliberately not solved it (as a side note, I have made 3 utility billing engines before SEG) and it can be a complex beast to solve all the various problems.

That said, there is some time of use base pricing, and likely some demand and fixed charges that are in the list oif things to do at some point in time.

In the mean time, there is something kinda simple that I could do:

A feature not public is to calculate a calculated stream where it has it's values multiplied by a number (there is also divide, thresholds and a bunch of other operations as well.

I could set up something where the energy price and carbon values could be used to create a calculated stream showing a profile for a dollar unit.  This would mean the dollar based calcualted stream would be presentable in a dashboard like all the others.

Let me know back here if this is something that could roll?

Thanks!

Sam, @samotage

I have also seen this, I usually look at the last post column which is usually correct and the recent post on the right hand side on the forums page.

Topic: Brultech / Calculated stream...

I know I've tried changing it, added a note when editing, doesn't do anything. This is something that Sam should look into. What can be done is a little Message in the "say something" gadget and move it above the the "todays cost" gadget.

See it below on my public page, you will see a cost of about $8 and above it it says LIPA

Topic: Brultech / Calculated stream...

Unfortunately SEG only allows for one cost, I to have a kind of two cost system, the price of delivery charge and a power supply charge (which can vary from month to month by a couple of cents per KW) and three different rate charges. So what I have done is look at a couple of  monthly bills add the total KW's up and divide by the total dollar amounts which also includes taxes meter rentals and the like and came up with an average which in my case is 20 cents per KW.

 

So you need to remove the two cost amounts from the "energy price" and use one average price. It's not as accurate but of the course of time it works out pretty close.

Topic: Comments and Suggestions / "Recent Activity" icons

Is there an easy way to see which topics have new content or be able to mark topics as read?  The Recent Activity icons have a different understanding of "recent".

For instance, in the Comments and Suggestions section, there is a topic from a month ago with the green icon that signifies "Recent Activity".  That doesn't seem right.  I've read it and nothing new is in there.

Not quite sure what you're looking for, but if it's to get a cost total per day from a stream it can be done if you have a fixed rate.

You need to set the cost per KW. This is done under "setting", this can be found under "tools". Once in setting you will see a box "energy price", enter your cost per KW, if it is 20 cents, enter it as 0.2

When you have done this, go into your dashboard and add the gadget "todays cost" select the stream that you would like to do this for, save it.  This will show the current cost on that dashboard, to get the total from a prior day, select the calendar from the dashboard and push it back.

Did you try the re-calculate feature that can be found when you go into the stream that you added the data too? It can be found at the bottom left on the edit screen.

Topic: The Open Grid / trying to get Usage Stats to recognize uploaded data

I’d like a Usage Statistics gadget to report lifetime kWh from my PV system, but my PV system was not connected to SEG for the first couple of months of its life (04Oct2013 to 16Dec2013).  So I uploaded daily kWh totals for the pre-SEG times using Exchange. But the Usage Statistics gadget still only reports total kWh from since my system was online and reporting data every minute to SEG (16Dec onwards).

I did a little trouble shooting - I download the stream data and the “Raw” data looks complete – it includes the daily values I manually uploaded and the 1-minute values automatically sent to SEG.  But “Aggregate” and “Days” downloads do not include the manually uploaded data values.  Have the robots not processed the uploaded data for some reason?  Or, is there some trick I'm missing?

Topic: The Open Grid / How does the right gadget determine data is old?

It seems one of my sensors is not sending data to SEG, but the right now the display for it is happy.  It does have the correct time for the last update, but that was yesterday.

 

This sensor Top (DF) on the Goat House Faucet.
