UPDATED 17th October 2017
We are aware of an issue that is affecting a number of our customers when trying to access their solar and electricity usage information through their My Account access. An example of this issue is shown below.
There appears to be a 2-5 day delay in the data that some customers are receiving. Our technical teams are investigating this at the moment and we will provide an update here as they unfold.
Thank you for your patience throughout this time, and please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience this has caused.
Solar Command Check is a daily solar health check, based on your home’s smart meter data for the previous 30 days. It lets you know if your system is producing solar energy or if we think there might be a problem via the presentation of two status: Green or Amber.
Green means your panels are producing solar energy and Amber indicates there could be a problem with your system. In both instances we provide support and guidance about how to maintain your system to maximise your investment or advice on how to resolve any problems.
To calculate your solar status we take into account your system details (system size, number of panels and year of installation) and your net import and export energy data from your home’s smart meter for the last 30 days. We then continuously run this data through patented algorithms and other reference data sets to provide you with an estimate of how your system has been performing for the last 30 days in comparison to what we expected.

The agreement to participate in the virtual power plant is for a 5 year period. To participate in the virtual power plant, you must remain an AGL Energy electricity customer for the 5 year term of the agreement. At the end of the period you can choose to exit the agreement.
By participating in the virtual power plant you will have a cutting edge battery installed at a great 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 takes into account the period you have participated in the program and the total value of the products installed. This early termination fee is listed in the terms and conditions provided with your quote.
If you move house, AGL may agree to transfer ownership to the new owner or arrange for your battery to be transferred to your new property at your cost, so you can keep enjoying the benefits.
AGL’s energy storage experts conduct detailed research on which batteries best suit Australian conditions and lifestyles. The lithium-ion batteries that AGL has selected are maintenance free, compact and are long lasting, as well as meeting international battery safety standards.
In order to maximise savings from a battery, you will need to have enough excess solar to charge the battery each day and enough energy consumption to discharge it each day.

Basically, it’s the term used to describe the chemical process that takes place when trees absorb and remove carbon dioxide (or C02-e) from the atmosphere – which is how Future Forests helps offset carbon emissions.
The planted trees can be seen from public roads, and while the Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor is set in a fairly remote area 400km north of Perth, July and August is wildflower season and a wonderful time to visit.
