Re: Questions on Digital Meter upgrade

Rather than calling multiple retailers who may or may not even know if they can, it would be far simpler to have (in writing) something from AGL saying there are no issues with other retailers accessing the details. That way if there does turn out to be a problem that requires the meter to be replaced, I can insist on AGL covering the cost (on the basis of misleading advice, *if* that turned out to be the case)

Re: Questions on Digital Meter upgrade

as you mention, what the person you speak to says and what actually ends up happening when you try to switch can be very different experiences. Perhaps I shall insist on something in writing from AGL.

Re: Questions on Digital Meter upgrade

BWSS, I checked with some other energy providers and they have said they have no issues getting the consumption data. I don't know if SA do things differently, but it seems that being a "meter provider" is a seperate thing to energy provider. Just in this case AGL happens to own the company that provides the meter management service. As for the AGL software... it looks interesting, but if $15/month is there normal price for a subscription I'll probably give it a miss.

Is it possible to programatically access the Solar Command data? e.g. have my computer connect using an API/web query to export the data, or it is only visible using the web in ...
