Saving with solar

Turn sunshine into savings

Solar systems come in a range of designs depending on a number of factors including your energy usage habits, roof size and orientation. But you don’t need to worry about this; our solar experts will help you work out the ideal system for your needs. You can also choose to include energy storage in your new energy mix – and with our solar monitoring tools you can see how your system is performing.

Solar installation costs vary too. For less than you think (from approximately $2,600), you can own an AGL solar system. There are also interest free and low interest finance options to help you manage the cost of your installation.

Use our solar estimation tool below to see how much you could be saving with solar.

SAVINGS CALCULATIONS AND SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS ARE ESTIMATES ONLY. The Accumulated Savings amount, Annual Savings amount, Years to Pay Back, Annual Pay Back Rate, System Size recommendation, System Cost estimate and Panel amount calculations are all intended as a guide only based on the information you have provided. In making these calculations we have used a number of assumptions which do not take into account your personal circumstances, including assumed average grid electricity tariffs and feed-in tariffs for your state, as well as generic solar industry averages. These estimates are not a guarantee of performance or savings, and should be used as a guide only. Your actual savings may vary significantly depending on a number of factors including your usage patterns, tariff changes, the weather and the solar system size that can be installed on your roof. No future changes to grid and feed-in tariffs have been considered. The assumptions we have made about your future grid electricity and feed-in tariffs may not eventuate, which could also affect the amount you save. The estimated system cost does not include travel charges for non-metro installations and any non-standard items. For a calculation that takes into account additional factors relevant to your personal circumstances, please call one of our solar experts on 1300 377 118. +System output reduction over the 25 year life of the panels for tree seedlings grown for 10 years.

Solar can help you save

  1. Solar feed-in tariffs

    Solar feed-in tariffs

    Varying based on your location and energy plan, solar feed-in tariffs are the price you will be paid for the electricity your solar system feeds back into the grid – it’s just another way AGL can help you save.

  2. Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (STCs)

    Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (STCs)

    This government initiative aims to encourage an increase in the amount of electricity generated from renewable sources. When you purchase an eligible solar power or solar hot water system, the government will give you a number of STCs (small-scale technology certificates). These STCs can then be exchanged with AGL for a solar system discount. From 1 January 2018, eligible systems receive 13 years’ worth of STCs in advance, when installed. As this will reduce each year, it’s best to install eligible systems sooner to get the most value out of STCs.

Make your home even more valuable

From environmental to financial, switching to solar is packed with benefits. Adding green features to your home can increase its value, meaning you could achieve a better price at sale.

If you’re a landlord, an AGL solar system can also make your property more attractive to prospective tenants. Installing a solar system can help reduce energy bills – a fantastic incentive for renters to choose your property over others.
