Frequently asked questions
Who is Kooee?
Like the iconic Australian bush call, Kooee is a call to action to accelerate Australia towards 100% renewable energy.
Would Kooee be the right choice for me?
You bet! Whether you require the 'Kooee with the Lot' plan (solar + battery), or simply just want to access ‘clean’, low-cost grid energy, we make it simple for you – find the right option to suit your needs with our Kooee calculator.
Which States/Territories will Kooee operate in?
We are currently available in NSW and SA, and are working hard to ensure remaining states and territories roll out as soon as possible. Check back for updates on when we are due to launch in your State!
Is Kooee an Energy Retailer?
Kooee is not a licensed retailer. The retailer and provider of energy to customers of Kooee energy products is Energy Locals Pty Ltd ACN 606 408 879, a licensed electricity retailer.
How long does it take to switch to Kooee?
Keen on saving the Earth huh... Well, we are too. So we will do whatever it takes to onboard you quickly and smoothly. Typically, it takes 4 weeks to switch, but don’t worry we look after all the paperwork for you.
How do I sign up?
It’s suuuuuper easy.
What about my old Electricity Company?
What happens if I want to leave Kooee?
How much can I expect to consume from my new energy system?
Where does the 'extra energy' I need come from?
Because of all the ‘poles and wires’ that transmit the electricity, it’s impossible to tell exactly where this energy comes from. It’s kind of like buying milk - it’s not all going to be able to come from Daisy.
How much does Kooee cost?
Great news! Kooee is designed to save you money, not cost you money - all while doing your bit for the planet. Our aim is to help you transition your home to 100% renewable energy, and save you money at the same time. Check out our Kooee calculator to get an idea of what others are saving.
How do Kooee tariffs differ to what I am paying now?
If you are with one of the big power companies you are probably consuming a lot of 'dirty energy" - and paying through the nose for it. With Kooee energy your monthly energy bill includes a subscription that allows you to buy power at the same price these power companies pay. Last month the retail price of electricity was 31% lower than what you are most likely being charged. To start with we pass that savings directly to you - 100%.
How much is my 'Kooee Bundle' energy plan calculated?
Kooee subscription fee: a flat $30 / month.
System cost: the monthly amount of the hardware and financing costs of your energy system (if applicable).
Energy from the grid: Wait, isn’t all my energy coming from my system? Well, the vast majority is, but there are still good reasons to be connected to the grid.
What happens if I use more energy than my plan has estimated?
No worries. It’s only the timeframe of your energy plan that will flex, not the monthly amount. If you use less energy than the ‘plan estimate’, the time frame (or term) of your plan gets shorter. woohoo!
How is my 'Kooee Lite' plan estimated?
Fixed subscription fee: A flat $30 / month
Variable component: based on the wholesale costs of your electricity needs (enabled by our retail partner Energy Locals).
What happens when I get to the end of my 'fixed plan'
Woohoo! Let's party!
Solar and Battery
What kind of Solar and Battery will be installed?
Who will install my energy system?
What kind of insurance does my energy system have?
This depends on the manufacturer. Don't worry, being a Kooee customer doesn't effect this policy at all. In fact, if it comes to it, we'd be happy to throw our weight around on your behalf if anything goes wrong.
What are my payment options?
There are three payment options - credit card direct debit, bank transfer, or Bpay.
What is the 'term' of my contract?
Is there any 'exit fees' if I decide to pay off my system early?
Nope, never. In actual fact, we want to help you do just that. Click here to find out more about our Home Automation options.
Do I need a new meter?
When you get a solar system you need an bi-directional meter or a 'Smart' meter. This will give you a direct feed into your on-demand energy system.
What's a 'smart meter'?
A smart meter measures and records your usage data at 30 minute intervals and transmits it to the electricity network regularly using 3G. This means you can be charged the wholesale electricity price for your usage as at each 30 minute interval. This way you also get your usage data every day instead of only once every 3 months when someone drives by and reads your meter.
I have an investment property – how can this work for me?
Keen on adding value to your investment property? Kooee makes it easy. Bundle the fixed Kooee plan with the rent. Your tenants will get the benefit of a fixed cost and you can sit back knowing your energy system is being paid off!
