My energy bill is huge. How can Keemin fix this?
We provide information that allows you to make better choices to reduce energy consumption without effecting how you live/operate, to any great extent.
My home/office is small, is there any point?
Of course! There is always room to improve.
What are the benefits of using a solar power (PV) system?
Electricity generated by a solar power system is used to offset or replace the power that would normally be purchased from your electricity supplier – thereby reducing your power bills and saving more. This solar generated energy also avoids the harmful pollution caused by generating electricity from the burning of fossil fuels.
Does a Solahart hot water service take long to install?
If your current hot water system breaks down Solahart can have you back in hot water within 24 hours, in most instances, with a temporary system while you wait for your installation, to take away the inconvenience of cold showers.
How long does it take to pay for itself?
Financial payback will vary depending on your circumstances, but with the available incentives plus the ongoing energy savings you can begin to recoup your additional investment straight away when you remain connected to the same fuel tariff. After you recover your initial investment, the savings are yours to spend on yourself and your family, year after year.
What are the government incentives available to me?
STC’s (Small-scale Technology Certificates – formerly Renewable Energy Certificates)
Each STC represents the equivalent of one megawatt hour of electricity generation from an accredited renewable energy source. For solar water heaters each STC represents the displacement by solar energy of one megawatt hour of electricity generation from a non-renewable energy source.
The installation of a solar water heater or PV system in your property may be eligible for the creation of STC’s. The financial benefit from assigning your right to create STC’s for your solar or heat pump water heater installation can be used to reduce the purchase price of your new Solahart.
The number of STC’s which may be created varies with the size/model of solar water heater or PV system and the region (or zone) in which the unit is installed. The value of an STC is not fixed and varies depending on market factors.
At Keemin we do all the calculations and applications for you and deduct the rebate from your invoice.
For Commercial enterprises there are also other government incentives available in Victoria. Please contact us to discuss these further.
How can I reduce my demand charge?

What are ‘Smart’ Meters?
‘Smart’ meters are meters that record data every 15 to 30 minutes (also known as interval data) and send the data back daily to the meter owner/meter data provider.
What is an embedded network?
An embedded network allows you to aggregate network and energy charges and on-sell electricity directly to your tenants. The benefits are that your tenants save money and you make additional revenue. Embedded networks are suitable for large multi-tenanted properties, such as office buildings and shopping centres.
