Every day solar energy that’s not used in a home is exported to the grid.


AGL Solar Exchange uses digital meters installed in participants’ homes to measure the solar energy that is exported in a given amount of time.


Every kWh of solar energy that is supplied to the grid is represented as a Solar Token on AGL Solar Exchange, which can then be traded between Buyers and Sellers.


A Solar Token is equivalent to 1 kWh of exported solar energy. Solar Tokens are traded on the platform at a rate a Buyer chooses and a rate a Seller chooses, and AGL Solar Exchange matches compatible trade preferences.


If you don’t have a solar system and want to buy Solar Tokens from a Seller, you can buy as many Solar Tokens as the amount of electricity you consumed from the grid within a trading period.
