solar refund near furure

Switched-on

why does AGL see it necessary to pay less for using my Solar???

I paid  a lot of money to get this solar system up and running everything is costing more but AGL seem to think that things should be cheaper for them but there charges are getting higher. MM how does this work??

 

some years back they provided good service for fair prizes , now there is only charging and who cares, very sad that a company is getting that bad.

You need to keep in touch with pricing.

Look at Solar Savers pricing with AGL (and other companies).

When I put in my solar system just over 3 and a half years ago it took us about 2 years and 4 months to get back the cost of the install ($3391).

When you invested in your system you should have looked at your costs verses the gains from your solar system.

 

Say you invested in a 5kw system (6.6kW).

 

Your usage per day was 15kW, your solar generation is 40kW (in summer).

 

You have the potential to make a profit.

 

Don't forget the supply charge, offpeak (controlled load) charges.

 

Look at your bills prior to solar and then your bills after solar...

 

Since we installed solar we had our biggest bill this year (Winter 2021) it was a MASSIVE $26.31.

 

You need to monitor your usage and your costs.

 

Yesterday our costs were astronomical, 

We used 5.085kW from the grid for the day.

Got paid for 17.750kW

It was an overcast day and only generated 22.9kW

We self consumed 5.15kW of our generation.

 

3-Nov-215.08517.75022.905.15

 

Our projected income for this billing period is:

Projected $-254.49

 

Yes that right $255.49 credit and we are 22% into this billing period.

 

Look into your usage, and use the internet to see if you can get a better price with any retailer.
