Here’s how it works
Every day solar energy that’s not used in a home is exported to the grid. AGL Solar Exchange uses the digital meters installed in participating homes to measure the solar energy that is exported to the grid in a given amount of time.
Every kWh of solar energy that is supplied to the grid is represented as a Solar Token on AGL Solar Exchange, which can then be bought.* Purchase Solar Tokens from solar households for less than you pay for your grid energy, and you could help reduce your AGL electricity bill.
