Description

Shift usage, save money.

Shift usage, save money. Powercents helps Time-Of-Use customers avoid peak electricity prices.

With smart meters and Time-Of-Use billing, the price of electricity depends on the season, day of the week and time of day.

Powercents helps you take advantage of lower price periods and avoid the more expensive ones.

Here's how:

1. Track Rates: See current Time-Of-Use rates, schedules, seasons and holidays

2. Avoid Peaks: Handy reminders to know when peak times change and when holiday rates apply

3. Power Breakdown: See what’s powering your home and how clean (or dirty) the grid is

Check-in with Powercents to see the current rate period, price and exactly how long until it changes. Making smart energy decisions is a snap with the day's periods and prices at a glance. Avoid peak prices and save money with handy reminders to know when peak times change and when holiday rates apply. Not all kilowatt-hours are created equally, some are cleaner sources of electricity than others. Powercents shows you where your power is coming from and the hourly average carbon emissions intensity (gCO2e/kWh) - a simple measure of how clean (or dirty) the grid is.

Time-Of-Use prices apply to most residential customers with a smart meter across the Province of Ontario.

Great!

Useful little app. If you could turn it into a Home Screen widget for ios14 that would be awesome for quick glances.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback Jordan103723! Agreed, a glanceable Time-Of-Use widget would be handy as part of a future app update.

Psychotic Crow ,

Needs background app refresh

No other app needs this for time based notifications so why does this?

Precipitator ,

Not updating

This app is cool and useful but ONLY if it updates electricity rates.
Otherwise it is simply a 24 hour clock.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback Precipitator! The Time-Of-Use rates in Powercents do update and display the most recent rates set by the Ontario Energy Board. These are set every six months (May 1 and Nov 1). With COVID-19, rates have been frozen on a number of occasions to provide some relief to consumers and those changes were also displayed in Powercents.

In addition to the Time-Of-Use rates, Powercents is a great resource for Time-Of-Use periods, seasons and holidays. It also provides a near realtime snapshot of Ontario's electricity grid and emissions that is updated hourly. We're betting no other clock app does that!
