FAQs

How it works
The offer

What’s a VPP?

A Virtual Power Plant, or VPP for short, is sometimes used to refer to a network of connected solar batteries that can be managed as one. 

The idea is that individual batteries can be coordinated, and in doing so become a pop-up power plant. So small amounts of energy stored in individual solar batteries can become a large amount of controllable energy. This can help stabilise the electricity grid and contribute to making energy more affordable in the future.  

What happens when you manage my solar battery?

How your battery is remotely managed depends on the circumstances at the time. It's based on the best way we think can help take pressure off the grid. 

Sometimes we’ll discharge energy from your solar battery and power your home. Any leftover energy will be supplied to the grid and you’ll receive your feed-in tariff as per your AGL electricity plan. 

Other times, we’ll either charge your battery from your solar system, or charge it from the grid (and you’ll pay your usual grid rate). There may also be times when we just hold your solar battery’s charge steady. 

How are the solar batteries connected?

Your solar battery has inbuilt software that allows us to talk to it in real-time. There are no wires or physical connections. 

Will I be worse off by joining AGL's VPP?

Because we’ll be managing your solar battery during times when the grid needs support, the energy used from your solar system, solar battery and the grid may change. This may affect your electricity bill and the amount of solar feed-in tariff credits you receive. 

We estimate that the VPP grid support services won't impact your electricity bill by more than $50 (GST incl.) over each 12-month period. Overall, we would expect your solar battery to reduce your electricity bills over time. Our battery experts can help calculate your savings. 

Will joining a VPP affect the warranty of my solar battery?

The solar battery and inverters that are sold as part of our VPP come with a manufacturer’s express warranty and participating in our VPP won’t void your manufacturer’s warranty. Each manufacturer warranty deals with VPP participation differently, so we encourage you to read the Tesla or LG Chem warranties for guidance and contact an our battery experts on 1300 447 465 if you have any questions. 

Am I eligible for humm90 finance?
You must be over 18 years in age, a permanent Australian resident, earn $25,000 or more per annum, have a clear credit file, satisfy credit eligibility criteria and have an email address, mobile phone and an Australian driver’s licence or Australian passport.
How do I apply for humm90 finance?

If you’re interested in applying for finance to purchase a solar battery with AGL, then our solar battery experts can talk you through it. The finance application process with humm90 takes around 10 minutes to complete online and 70% of all applications are a processed within minutes.

Is this offer only available in metro areas?

The offer is available in metropolitan SA, VIC, NSW and QLD (within 50km of state capital city CBD or installer location). We’re currently looking at ways to increase our installer coverage in regional areas without compromising quality and post-install support, so stay tuned.

Will my AGL solar feed-in tariff be affected?

When you supply energy back to the grid, you’ll continue to receive your feed-in tariff as per your AGL electricity plan. 

Can I change my electricity plan during the 5-year term?

You're free to switch your electricity plan at any time. However, you must remain on an AGL electricity plan in order to connect to our VPP. If you leave AGL during the 5-year term, you just have to repay the upfront AGL credit of $1,000 on a pro rata basis. 

Eligibility criteria applies. Offer is limited. AGL reserves the right to extend the offer and the offer may be subject to change or expiry without notice.
