Keemin is a Solahart Dealer. We provide and install Solar Power (PV) and Solar Hot Water solutions.
Why are we partnered with Solahart?
Solahart was one of the first companies in the world to recognise the value of the sun’s free energy.
Solahart pioneered solar water heating in Australia in 1953. Since then they have installed over 1 million systems in over 70 countries and have become a world leader in the field of solar energy.
Today their solar power PV systems are among the most efficient in the world, offering big energy savings to homeowners who switch to solar panels and energy free from the sun.
The extensive network of Solahart Experts are qualified to assess your home and provide you with the best systems to meet your family’s needs. As installers we are trained to the highest standards to ensure the safety and effectiveness of your system.
All this is backed by Solahart’s comprehensive warranties and the peace of mind you’ll get from dealing with Australia’s solar pioneer.
Solar Power Systems – how they work
Solar power panels generate electricity from sunlight. The roof mounted solar panels are made up of many photovoltaic (PV) cells. These cells collect the sun’s light and convert the energy into DC current.
This is fed through an inverter and converted to 240V AC electricity to power your home. The amount of electricity you can produce depends on the number and efficiency of the panels, the size of the inverter and the amount of sunlight in your location.
Your home remains connected to the power grid so when you generate more electricity than you need you can feed it into the grid or purchase more from the grid when you are not producing enough to meet your requirements.
Keemin is a licensed electrical contractor and licensed by the clean energy council to design and install grid-connect PV systems.
Solar Hot Water – how it works
Water heating accounts for around 25%* of the average Australian household’s energy use, so it make great sense to switch to a solar water heater and use the sun’s free energy.
Solahart manufactured our first solar water heater 60 years ago and have continued to develop the technology to be one of the most effective ways for Australian homes to save energy.
Solar water heaters comprise two major components: solar collectors and a storage tank.
All Solahart solar hot water systems use flat plate collectors. These are metal plates coated with a dark, heat-absorbent surface with pipes or channels called risers.
The coating absorbs the sun’s rays and the heat is transferred directly to the fluid in the risers. This direct transfer of heat makes it a most efficient solar technology. The collectors feature a special toughened glass to protect from the extremes of the Australian climate.
In our thermosiphon solar water heater models with roof mounted tanks the heated fluid rises to the top of the collector and into the tank where is displaces cooler fluid which flows in to the bottom of the collector where the process is repeated.
The greater the temperature difference between the fluid in the solar collectors and the water in the tank, the faster the flow between them.
