How long will I participate in AGL’s Virtual Power Plant?

No ratings

The agreement to participate in the Virtual Power Plant is for a 5 year period. While participating in the Virtual Power Plant, you must remain an AGL electricity customer. At the end of the 5 year period the agreement automatically expires. For customers who have had a battery installed already and are taking advantage of our upgrade program, the 5 year term does not reset upon installation of the new battery.


Unlike some other virtual power plant programs, you own the battery and/or solar system installed in your home during and after your participation in the program.


By participating in the Virtual Power Plant demonstration project you will have a battery installed at a heavily subsidised price. If you choose to exit the agreement before the scheduled end date, you will be required to pay an early termination fee. The fee is capped at $5,000 and reduces over the 5 year term. This early termination fee is listed in the terms and conditions provided with your quote.


If you move to a new house, AGL may agree to transfer your contract to be part of the Virtual Power Plant program to the new owner.
