During summer I tend to have showers in the morning AND in the evening, but use a lot less hot water. Under normal circumstances I feel like we use most of our hot water during the day as we have dinner and wash the dishes by 3pm.
The hot water system was installed 3 years ago but it was a like for like replacement for a system installed in 2000. It’s a single element Vulcan Electric 3.6Kw.
I think there might be a CL11 (or something like that) closer to the rate you mention. I don’t know why we’re on CL33 but that’s the way it’s always been and I’ve never been able to find any details on how it works other than power is only available at certain mystery off peak times.
I’ve been unable to find any information on time or kWh caps on the FIT. But AGL can of course change their rates at any time and often do so twice a year.
Oh sorry, that should have been 1,000kWh.
I wish electricity providers didn’t obfuscate as much as they do. Won’t be until I have an IoTaWatt that I’ll have a better understanding of when and on what we actually use most of our power on.
Speaking of which I just got a notification that my IoTaWatt has just left Hong Kong. Hopefully it won’t take too long to get to me.
