Time-Based Control Mode

If your electricity prices vary throughout the day, you are likely on a time-of-use plan. Time-of-use plans are utility rate structures in which electricity prices vary depending on time of day, the day itself, and the season.
Utilities usually break the plan into three sections:
·Peak: High-demand hours with the most expensive prices
·Off-Peak: Low-demand hours with the least expensive prices
·Shoulder: All other times
Time-Based Control (also referred to as Load Shifting) will help you maximize savings with smart charging and discharging.

Step 1: Connect the Mango Power Union with the grid using the method described in the Installation section.

Step 2: Open the Mango Power App and choose your Mango Power Union on the Home Page.

Step 4: Choose the Time-Based Control Mode and the system will switch to this mode. You can set the charge and discharge times according to your local utility conditions.
