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 on AGL Solar Exchange as a Solar Token, which can then be sold to people who don’t have solar panels installed. Selling Solar Tokens for more than your feed-in tariff could help you reduce your AGL electricity bill.
To participate in the AGL Solar Exchange trial you’ll need to:
- Live in Victoria.
- Be a current AGL electricity customer, or be willing to make the switch to AGL.
- Be on an AGL Market Contract energy plan to participate in this offer.
- Have a digital meter installed at your home.
- Own a rooftop solar system if you would like to sell Solar Tokens.
Not sure what meter type you have, or whether you’re on an AGL Market Contract? No worries. An AGL energy expert will check whether you have an eligible meter or AGL energy plan when you sign up.
The AGL Solar Exchange trial is open to households with solar panels installed, even if you didn’t purchase your solar system from AGL. Register to join and we’ll confirm your eligibility to participate.
