Can I get solar power?
ActewAGL promises to design a solar system based on your home's needs.
While every home's potential solar generation is different, ActewAGL has a wide range of solar products from brands like Solax, Panasonic, LG and Talesun to maximise the opportunity.
For those hoping to move away from the grid, ActewAGL has battery solutions for protection against blackouts and using your solar energy at night.
All ActewAGL solar systems come with a five-year whole-of-system warranty and can be purchased on an interest-free payment plan.
- If you already have solar panels, ActewAGL offers a small-generator buyback scheme for customers in both the ACT and NSW. This scheme offers you a feed-in tariff for any excess electricity your solar panels generate during the day.
- If you don't already have solar panels installed, ActewAGL can design a system for your home, depending on your budget and requirements. Once installed, you will be eligible for the ActewAGL small-generator buyback scheme.
Can I get GreenPower?
ActewAGL's Greenchoice program is a certified GreenPower program, allowing customers to choose to source a percentage of their electricity from a renewable energy source.
You have two options when it comes to ordering Greenchoice from ActewAGL. You can opt for a fixed cost structure that means you'll always know exactly how much you'll pay per day for renewable energy, with pricing tiers tied to approximate percentages of daily household use.
Alternatively, you can choose a percentage-based approach, where green energy will be purchased to offset your actual daily electricity usage. If you opt for the percentage approach, you can opt for 10%, 25%, 50%, 100% or 200% of your usage to be powered by renewables.
The Greenchoice program is independently audited every year to ensure that your energy is definitely being sourced from renewable generators, which include wind, solar, mini-hydro and biomass.
In addition to selling electricity and gas to customers, ActewAGL also has a retail store in Fyshwick, ACT, which sells and installs a range of energy products:
- Reverse-cycle air conditioners
- Natural gas heaters
- Evaporative portable air conditioners
- Gas log fires and solar
- Solar, gas and electric hot water systems
