Ausgrid's Power2U Program is an initiative that encourages customers to take up renewable energy and efficiency measures, such as installing solar systems, to provide more choice about the way they use energy while reducing costs and maximising grid efficiency benefits. AGL is participating in this program in relation to the installation of solar systems for eligible business customers.

How do I apply for the Power2U financial incentive?

Contact AGL to discuss your suitability for the program. AGL will apply for the financial incentive from Ausgrid on your behalf after assessing your suitability, including the appropriate size and design of the solar PV system based on your business and circumstances.

How much incentive will I receive?

Depending on the size of the solar PV system installed, an incentive of between $2,500 - $50,000 (excl GST) will be applied as a once off payment on a lump sum basis before taxes. Eligible customers can choose any system size from 10kW up to 200kW and receive an incentive equivalent to $250 per kW installed (excl GST). For systems larger than 200kW the maximum financial incentive remains as $50,000.

How will the incentive be applied?

The incentive will be applied upfront to the solar system price on a lump sum basis before taxes.

Can I choose to have the incentive paid in cash?

No. Funding from this program is only available via a credit or discount.

What will be the remaining cost of the solar panels after the incentive is deducted?

This will depend on the size of the solar panels installed. Our team will assess and determine the best fit for your circumstances.

Can I apply for the Ausgrid Power2U solar financial incentive across multiple accounts?

You can have multiple accounts within the defined suburbs, however there is a $50,000 cap per customer.

What’s the min/max system size I can apply for?

You can choose any system size from 10kW up to 200kW and receive an incentive equivalent to a $250 discount per kW installed (excl GST). For systems larger than 200kW the maximum financial incentive remains as $50,000.

How long after my application being approved will the solar PV system be installed?

We will advise of the target date for the installation after your application is approved. The time generally depends on the project complexity but may be impacted by factors beyond our control.

How long is the Ausgrid Power2U program incentive offer open for applicants?

The program incentive offer is open to applications until 30 November 2020.

When does the installation need to be energised (commissioned) by?

The installation needs to be energised in time to provide to AGL the evidence of the installation, commissioning and energisation of the solar photovoltaic system (this should be in the form of a Certificate of Compliance Electrical Work (CCEW)) and evidence of the total rated solar panel capacity of the installed system by 15 March 2021.

Do I have to have a specific system type installed?

Yes. AGL provides a turnkey solution taking care of the engineering design, procurement and installation of the system.

Can AGL help with installation?

AGL installs the solar PV system.
