AGL turns the ignition switch on new electric vehicle plan

AGL today accelerated its drive into the growing electric vehicle (EV) market with the launch of a new offer for EV owners.

AGL Chief Customer Officer Christine Corbett said the new electricity plan1 would provide eligible customers with bonus credits over the two year period of the plan.

“This new plan allows our customers to make the most of their investment in electric vehicles while taking the pressure off their running costs and the environment,” Ms Corbett said.

“It is based on our AGL Essentials Plus fixed-plan which has proven popular since it was launched in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia in January 2019.

“The new plan provides flexibility for customers who value fixed rates, the inclusion of carbon offsets, and the peace of mind that vehicles can be charged at any time of the day.

“The plan also builds on the knowledge gained from our world-leading Electric Car Plan trial, which allowed us to learn more about the needs of EV owners.

“We ran workshops with EV owners to develop the new proposition and it became clear that flexibility and offsetting carbon emissions were key requirements.

“Certified carbon offset programs allow customers to offset their household electricity emissions, including when they charge their car at home.”

Ms Corbett said the new plan was consistent with AGL’s growth strategy and reflected the company’s focus on creating opportunities to connect with customers in an emerging electrified world.
