When I compare the data on ElectricityInfo and that of the EMI API, it would appear the API is 25minutes delated.
For instance if I look at the following URL for my pnode KMO0331 right now at 6:45pm, I get the following data
However I get more realtime data if I look athttps://www1.electricityinfo.co.nz/prices#!#search_form%255Brun_types%255D%255B%255D=F&search_form%255Brun_types%255D%255B%255D=T&search_form%255Brun_types%255D%255B%255D=A&search_form%255Brun_types%255D%255B%255D=I&search_form%255Bmarket_types%255D%255B%255D=E&search_form%255Bmarket_types%255D%255B%255D=R&search_form%255Bnodes%255D%255B%255D=KMO0331&search_form%255Bdate_from%255D=2018-01-11&search_form%255Btp_from%255D=1&search_form%255Bdate_to%255D=2018-01-12&search_form%255Btp_to%255D=48&search_form%255Btoday_and_tomorrow%255D=true
When I noticed the problem, the API was still showing a spot price of $121 where as electricity info website was showing it at $174, the data was a good 15-20 minutes delayed which is no good for automation of generation and turning off power hungry devices etc.
Is it the intention for the API to be so lagged behind; is there a more accurate way of getting more up to date data?
I used to be able to use https://www.electricityinfo.co.nz/comitFta/five_min_prices.download?INchoice=SEL&INdate=31/12/2016&INgip=KMO0331&INperiodfrom=1&INperiodto=50&INtype=Average however that link no longer works.
