A quick review of ActewAGL


  • Electricity and gas to the ACT.
  • The choice of 200% GreenPower as well as an energy shop where you can recycle appliances, get more energy-efficient heaters, and more.


  • Guaranteed discounts on most of their plans don't necessarily make ActewAGL the cheapest supplier for you overall.

Solar panel

Does ActewAGL offer solar?

While ActewAGL used to offer direct solar panel and battery system installations, it has ceased operations. Instead, it now refers customers in the Canberra region who are looking for solar to Solarhub, its part-owned solar installation company.

If you have a solar system installed already, you'll be eligible for solar feed-in tariffs on excess electricity you feed back into the grid.

Green energy

How green is ActewAGL?

ActewAGL got a score of 1.29/10 on the Green Electricity Guide, placing it right about average among Australian energy retailers. It performs poorly in terms of both carbon emissions and renewables policy, but has a good stance against fossil fuel energy sources as well as being very transparent about its energy.

However, ActewAGL does offer two forms of accredited GreenPower. One allows you to pay for a fixed amount of green energy daily, while the other lets you pay to ensure that between 10 and 200% of your energy use will be offset by green and renewable sources.

There are other tariff types available to customers and you may need to contact your provider if you are on these tariffs:

  • Single rate with a controlled load
  • Time of use
  • Time of use with a controlled load

The price estimate should not be used as an official quote, but an indication of what your costs may be on the plan. It varies based on whether you provide us with your bill details. You can learn more here.
