I would email AGL with my questions about this but it looks like they don't want to be contacted - the references to chatting online are text\graphics only not links, and I'm not after the Indian call centre, so I'm hoping people here can help.
I'm looking at installing a 5-10kW solar system later this year, depending on the advice I receive, but am a little confused by the Solar Saver plan info. At present the SS plan offers a 17c per kWh Feed-in-Tariff which is balanced out by higher General Usage, Controlled Load, and affiliated Supply Charges. That all seems self explanatory and so long as I'm a net producer each month\quarter\bill period the costs will be paid by the credits earned. What I'm confused about is the fact the plan says it's a 24 month no lock in contract with variable rates. Can someone decipher this for me?
How can a plan be for 24 months if it's not locked in? Isn't it just a rolling contract? And what of the variable rates? Does that apply exclusively to the General Usage\Controlled Load\Supply Charges, or does it also apply to the 17c per kWh? Could I sign up today and then be notified tomorrow that AGL are slashing the FiT to 1c per kWh?
