I didn't go thru this link in detail: https://www.ema.gov.sg/Guide_to_Solar_PV.aspx
Cheers! I didn't realize they updated their guide to include OEM info!

If I were to buy energy from say Ohm, a solar array I operate would come under ECIS.

That's me on a bad month lol. That's why OEM is a godsend. It is practically a 15% discount on my utilities bill when it finally releases in my area Jan 1st.
Crypto mining or landed property?

Landed with a koi pond. With the weather getting warmer and warmer, been looking at installing chillers to keep the water around 27 degrees.

Edit: before ppl say anything, I know folk who spend far more than me monthly on their cats and dogs. At least my fish are relatively cheap to feed

Pretty often yes. The big energy sinks are the pond pumps, ac units and induction cookers. We cook every day so the cookers eat a fair bit.

I think the main culprits at your home are the number of fridges and mini bar fridges. Like electro vamps when paired with long hours aircon usage.

Fish pond pump or lights I doubt consume so much

Yes 3 mths trial applies to all Ohm plans but do note when you switch within 3 mths later - it's without termination penalty but prevailing price rates might have changed and what promos are unknown - its a gamble of sorts

Yes. You can terminate anytime within the 3 months. That is what it is there for.

My pond pumps draw 600w 24x7. Measured with tongs. Not exactly lightweight. A lot of people forget how energy intensive keeping fish can be. The marine people especially since they often have to chill their systems.

Waterfall feature helps to some extent and the following suggestions:

Consistently 2 Bedrooms for 12hrs a day, including weekends. The hall AC is used only for maybe 2-3 hrs a week when the niece and nephew are over. Bedrooms and hall on separate system 4s.

One special room used for storing humidity sensitive things is cooled 24x7. That one has its own system 1 and is specially insulated. Very low human traffic, and the setpoint is high at 28C.
