Automatically take advantage of when electricity prices are lowest.

Priicer is an easy to use tool that lets you choose how much you are willing to pay for electricity for each device in your home or business. We donโ€™t care when our electric hot water heater warms our water or when our electric car gets charged, we just want to be sure that our water is hot when we want to take a shower and our car is charged when we are ready to go!

There are a few electricity providers around the world that charge you a variable rate for your electricity (see list below). The price they charge you varies every 5, 15, 30, or 60 minutes depending on the wholesale rate of electricity, which is tied to the supply and demand of electricity at that moment in time. Priicer watches these price changes and automatically turns your devices on or off depending on if your bid is higher or lower than the real time price of electricity.

Prices change because of the unpredictable nature of supply and demand for electricity in your region. Increasing levels of renewable energy on the grid adds to this unpredictability. When the wind blows and the sun shines the price goes down, but when demand rises, or the wind stops blowing and the sun stops shining, the price goes up. The more we can utilize lower cost and cleaner renewable electricity, the more renewables will be able to be added to the grid.

For now, you can control your devices through an EKM Omnimeter Pulse v.4 connected to an EKM Push3, or you can control your Tesla Model S,3,or X. We would like to add more products in the future, so please let us know what you would be interested in controlling.

Priicer is in beta, so please let us know if you see any issues.
