PV installation approval

Hi, I have just placed an order with an installer for PV panels and inverter, but am advised that it will take about 7 weeks for AGL to grant approval to install.


Is this correct and what is involved in the approval process?

Re: PV installation approval

Hey freddles,


Thank you for your enquiry!


Since the implantation of the government-mandated 'Power of Choice' changes on 1/12/2017, all meter change/upgrade requests need be lodged through your energy retailer, or in this case, AGL. The time frames for these installation can vary depending on the existing meter configuration at your property and our workload at the time.


For further information or assistance, we encourage you to get in touch with our New Connections team on 1800 680 430.


Kind regards,
