Have I successfully migrated to the Beta App and joined the test plan?


I think the answer should be yes, but I’d like confirmation.

I’m surprised at being the first to apply.


So here’s the second.

 

Could you work with Tesla in my case as a priority (but of course you also need to do the same for any other brand battery in your VPP) to develop a comprehensive app for devices and a more detailed and more graphically informative website for not only what is available now from Tesla and others but also takes in direct VPP energy flows in both directions between battery and grid.

@David_AGL 

 

Have downloaded the beta 8.

 

When are the app and web interface going to actually show the correct usage and billing for a day.

 

Such as Peak Shoulder Offpeak usage and costings for the day.

 

Not on a demand tariff but is your demand rate shown.

 

When are you going to update everything so that you can see YESTERDAYS usage not last Wednesday's (two days ago).

 

When are you going to update the MyUsage file to show the correct meter readings. My meter is read every 5min (not 30).

 

I have asked this question before, but why are you not supplying the MyUsage file in the industry standard NEM format?

 

Much easier to extract data from and uses less disk space for storage and is considerably smaller for downloading.

 

By the way could not find Feedback on the overview page using Android!

Cheers Neil

Hi @NeilC , thanks for checking out the app beta. I think most of these questions have been passed through to our product owners previously, so I'll check in with where we're at on them. 

 

On the question of recent usage, I'm told we're only able to receive the data as we receive it from the distributor, which means a two-day delay. 

@Alakshendra are the instructions on this post still accurate regarding the "Give Feedback" link? Neil says he's unable to see it.
