Energy Saving Solutions
To promote energy-efficiency, ActewAGL has set up an Energy Saving Solutions scheme to enable customers to upgrade their appliances and implement energy-saving measures. ActewAGL believe that by giving customers the opportunity to do so, they can kickstart some cost savings. Initiatives include upgrading your heating system at home by providing rebates on a range of heating and cooling appliances. These include your ducted gas heating, reverse cycle air conditioning or even your hot water heat pump. Under the Energy Saving Solutions scheme, ActewAGL will also remove and dispose of your old fridge for free while giving you a $30 credit on your next energy bill! The scheme hasn’t ignored the needs of businesses either with an initiative to upgrade commercial lights to cost-saving and energy-intensive LED lights.
ActewAGL allows customers to have access to solar systems that include solar panels as well as energy storage systems. The major draw for customers will be access to healthy government rebates through ActewAGL. Solar panel deals include 14-panel, 18-panel as well as 22-panel systems ranging in price from between $5,800 to $7,000. Installation costs will also include a dual-tracking inverter, as well as a smart meter upgrade included. To sweeten the pot, ActewAGL will also allow you to pay no upfront costs for your solar system and instead make interest-free payments on one or two-year plans.
ActewAGL is an electricity and gas retail company, with its head office in Canberra. The company was founded in 2000, as a joint-venture between famed retailer AGL and the ACTEW Corporation, owned by the ACT state government. The company has, however, been around since 1915 to supplement the state’s energy infrastructure.
ActewAGL Retail includes ActewAGL Solar, which sells rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) solar panels to its ACT and NSW customers.
