The installation process.

  •  

    1. First consultation

    At AGL we know every family is different. That’s why our solar experts will work with you to create a tailored solution based on your energy usage, lifestyle and budget.

  •  

    2. Your quote

    You’ll get a written quote with all the system details including the number of panels, the size of the inverter and the cost. Once you accept, we’ll do the paperwork to start the process of getting your grid connection pre-approved.

  •  

    3. Connecting to the grid

    Once we’ve got grid connection pre-approval, our Clean Energy Council accredited installers will call you to schedule your installation.

    4. Installing your system

    This is the day the physical solar system will be installed, so you’ll need to be at the premises. Our Clean Energy Council accredited team will endeavour to install the system efficiently, with minimal disruption. We then send grid connection forms to your energy retailer, and it’s time to pay your final invoice.

    5. Connected solar

    Once your energy retailer arranges connection (and upgrades your meter if required), you’re free to use and enjoy your solar power.

  •  

    6. Ongoing care

    AGL protects your investment long after installation. All our solar panels come with a 25-year performance and 12-year manufacturer’s warranty against defects, with a five-year installation warranty. Inverters come with an eight-year manufacturer and five-year installation warranty. AGL Solar Command, our monitoring tool, helps you make the most of your system.

Installation processes vary from state to state, and individual installations may vary.

Choosing the right installer.

When making the switch to solar power, information is key – it’ll help you choose the right provider and system.

To help you find the perfect installer, here are some questions you should ask:

  1. How many years experience do you have?

    It’s important to know the installer’s previous solar experience and their capabilities.

  2. How many solar systems have you installed?

    Know you’ve chosen the best by finding out how many systems they’ve installed.

  3. Have you installed systems in my area before?

    Every home and suburb is different, so make sure they’re familiar with your type of property.

  4. Can you explain your terms and conditions?

    Make sure there are no hidden costs or restrictions by having the fine print read to you.

  5. Who connects my home to the grid?

    Understand the full process and how the team will install your system.

  6. How much is a new meter?

    Find out if a new meter will affect your quote. Some providers include it while others don’t.

  7. How long does installation take?

    Plan for installation with minimal disruption by finding out how long it could take.
