AGL is a Top Volume Solar Retailer for 2022

It’s quite a feat for a solar company to install many thousands of solar panels in one year. It demonstrates a high level of success and credibility, and deserves to be acknowledged.

SunWiz has been tracking every solar power system installed in Australia since 2009, including information on which solar company did each installation. We are the undisputed authority on solar market volumes, and our data is widely quoted by companies, NGOs, and government agencies.

After thorough analysis of the solar installations that occurred in 2022, SunWiz has found the following to be true:

  • AGL is the Number 1 Commercial Installer nationwide for capacity of solar power systems installed from 2017-2022.

Solar Savings With no Upfront Costs

Solar energy is a great way to reduce operating costs, but it’s not always easy to pay for a solar system upfront. We’ve introduced the Solar Smart Plan, which is also known as a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Under this arrangement, AGL will install a solar system on your roof at no upfront cost to you, and you simply pay for the energy produced by the system. In many cases, the PPA tariff will be less than what you currently pay for your daytime electricity.
