How can Tibber Pulse help you save energy? Here's everything you need to know about the gadget that takes the pulse of your home.

Updated over a week ago

Tibber Pulse is simply a pulse monitor for the home that can help you reduce your power consumption.

How to reduce power consumption with Tibber Pulse

πŸ•΅οΈ With an overview of your power consumption, you can find out what the biggest power thieves in your home are - and get rid of them. If you turn on and off various devices in your home, you can see in real time how this affects the consumption graph in the app. You might get an aha moment when you see what's actually using a lot of power. You can read more about Tibber Pulse and catching power thieves here.

Tibber Pulse works like this:

  • Connects to your electricity meter

  • Measures the consumption in your home in real time and sends the info directly to the Tibber app via Wi-FI

  • In the Tibber app, you get a full overview, in real time, of your electricity consumption

Avoid paying unnecessarily high grid fee

Set consumption limits and activate push notifications

Via the Pulse bubble (the one marked "Pulse now") you can set a consumption limit. In other words, a limit on the kWh you want to stay below to avoid ending up at an unnecessarily high grid fee level. You can also activate a push notification that alerts you if you are about to exceed the limit.

This feature is only available if the Pulse is combined with an active energy subscription.

πŸ€“ How the grid fee is calculated

Your grid company calculates your grid fee based on when you use electricity (energy component) and how much electricity you use at one time (capacity component).

The largest grid companies operate a stair-step model with different prices for the capacity component. They use the average of your three hours of highest consumption per month as a starting point when calculating the level you should be at.

If you avoid individual hours where you exceed, for example, 10 kWh, you can stay at a lower capacity level and pay less in grid fee than if you exceed 10 kWh and jump up to the next level. Check your grid operator's website for an overview of the levels they operate with.

Integrated charging box + Pulse = πŸ’™

  • Peak Control
    If you have an integrated charging box (Easee or Zaptec), you can activate power balancing via the Pulse bubble. The charging speed will then automatically adjust downwards to keep the total consumption in the home below the desired consumption limit.

  • Load Balancing

    If you activate load balancing via the Pulse bubble in the app, the charging speed of the charger is temporarily limited if there is a risk of overloading the main fuse.
