Is AGL’s Virtual Power Plant right for me?

No ratings

AGL’s Virtual Power Plant is open to eligible metropolitan Adelaide homeowners who meet the following criteria:


  • Own an appropriately sized solar system or want to go solar.
  • Own your own home.
  • Currently generate more solar energy than you’re using in your home.
  • Are an existing AGL electricity customer or want to make the switch.
  • Live in an eligible suburb of metropolitan Adelaide.
  • Are not currently on a government  solar bonus scheme feed-in tariff.

If your home generates sufficient excess solar energy you could benefit from participating in AGL’s Virtual Power Plant, by using more of the solar energy you produce.


If you are currently on a government solar bonus scheme feed-in tariff, installing a battery will affect your eligibility to access that scheme. You should consider your own personal circumstances when deciding whether to purchase a battery as part of this Virtual Power Plant offer.


You must be an existing AGL electricity customer or wanting to make the switch to participate in this offer and remain with AGL for your electricity for the term of the agreement. If you’re currently with another electricity retailer, one of our friendly AGL customer representatives can help you make the switch.


Register your interest in the next stage of the Virtual Power Plant demonstration project and an AGL solar and battery expert will be in touch to discuss the program and your eligibility to join.
