SMART METER INSTALLATION IN NSW

Switched-on

I requested for a Smart Meter in June 2017 for Account No.xxxx0072 in NSW. Still waiting for a net meter to be installed. Currently have solar panels and not able to use the solar we are producing. I was told I would have a net meter installed in August. It's now October 2017 and nothing happened to date. The last conversation I had with AGL I was told that were no technician in the area. I have an approval ANC 7901 to install additional Solar panels and waiting for Smart Meter to use the Solar Power Generated during the Day. Losing so much money waiting and waiting and still waiting.

 

Anyone else have a solution as AGL not helping.

My brother has been waiting a similar length of time and has been given the run around too, AGL seem to be quite incompetent, received a call today and still unresolved

I'm sadly going through the same headache now too..I've been ringing AGL since Feb, 18 it's now April and I have panels but no solar meter 😞 . I'm so disappointed considering I have been a loyal customer for many years.  I speak to so many people and their managers but no one cares.  They say they would call me back and no one emails or calls back.  I call back wait on the phone for more than 1/2 hour and either they disconnect the call on you or let you wait until you hang up.  I'm so very frustrated and no one cares. I had a confirmed booking for end of March, and no one turned up and no communication from AGL #unhappyaglcustomer

I have the same problem as you have indicated. However, when I requested information and was given the run around I responded appropriately. The response was to remove me from this site. I am now going to fair trading and then to my local member. AGL is just not interested in getting this sorted because they can take your solar power to the Grid for free and then provide you with an estimated account because they say they cannot monitor it...Incompetent is the right word....
