Still have any questions on Solar, Power Purchase Agreements, or AG Energy?
Hopefully we have answered your questions below.
Can AG Energy help my business?
Yes, AG Energy sells solar electricity to all types of businesses. We have been able to help boatyards, mechanics, Vets, Nurseries, Cafe's, farms and farmers.
We can help any business that uses a lot of electricity during the day and wants to save money on their energy bills. We will need access to a suitable area for solar to be installed, and can work with landlords to accomplish this.
Is AG Energy selling solar?
No, AG Energy is an electricity retailer. We sell solar-generated electricity, and you will receive a monthly electricity bill from us for any solar electricity you use.
How does my business save money?
You save money when you buy electricity from AG Energy. We supply solar electricity to your business ar a cheaper rate than your grid connected retailer, so every time you buy from us instead of the grid, you are saving money (and helping the environment as well).
Do I pay anything upfront, or ever?
No, there is no connection fee, no installation fee, no buyout fee, no fees! You only pay for the electricity that you use.
Do I have to leave my current electricity retailer?
No, AG Energy operates behind the meter so you stay connected to the grid via your traditional retailer, while we supply you with cheaper solar energy.
How does AG Energy supply me electricity?
AG Energy installs, owns, maintains and monitors a Solar System, designed specifically for your needs at your place of business. We use the electricity that is produced by the Solar System to provide you with cheap clean sun powered energy.
Am I locked into my supply contract with AG Energy?
No, you can opt out of it if you are not happy with AG Energy, or wish to simply go elsewhere.
Are there any buyout clauses or other costs?
No, there are no buyout clauses in the supply contract. If you are not happy with the performance of our Solar Solution, just tell us and we'll take it down.
Do I need a place at my business to install solar panels?
Yes, AG Energy will need to be able to install a solar system at your business. A site inspection will be required before we can get started.
How does AG Energy make money?
We make money from the cheaper solar electricity we sell to you. Instead of spending billions of dollars on huge power plants, AG Energy concentrates its spending on specific renewable projects customised for its customers needs.
How am I helping the environment?
AG Energy only uses renewable solar energy from the sun. This means that every time you use power supplied by AG Energy you are not using power that is generated from power plants that pollute the environment.
Is there a loyalty bonus?
Yes, when you stay with AG Energy for the entire term of the supply contract you are rewarded with ownership of the Solar System that we used to provide you with power. And you can be guaranteed that it still works and suits your needs.
What happens in a blackout?
If there is a power blackout across the grid your business will still lose power, unless you have installed batteries which keep the solar energy operating.
What happens if it is a very cloudy or rainy day?
Even on cloudy and rainy days, you might still be supplied with solar electricity from AG Energy. But if not, you will continue to be supplied with your energy power from the grid.
What happens if my Solar System isn't working?
AG Energy monitors your Solar System 24/7, so we are alerted immediately if there are any problems, and arrange to fix them with you soonest.
Do I need to stay grid-connected?
We always advise our customers to stay grid-connected. Staying grid-connected allows your business a back-up power supply, ensuring that your business continues to operate.
What do you mean by AG Energy has "a vested interest"?
AG Energy has a vested interest in supplying you power that is cheaper than the alternative to ensure you continue to shop with us.
AG Energy has a vested interest in ensuring you get a high quality Solar System installed for your business, because we rely on this System to supply your business with electricity - or else we don't get paid.
AG Energy has a vested interest in monitoring and maintaining the solar system because you only pay for the electricity you use, so if the system is broken and not working then we are unable to supply and sell you any solar electricity.
What is AG Energy’s GREENER pledge?
AG Energy is building a brighter and GREENER future for all.
On top of our mission to increase the uptake of business solar and renewable technology in Australia, AG Energy also pledges to plant a tree for every customer we have, every year, on National Tree Day (July 26th).
AG Energy continues to make Australia a brighter and greener place and space for all of us.
AG Energy has been able to help many different kinds of businesses reduce the cost of their electricity by turning to Solar.
