    Eligibility criteria

    To be eligible for the ActewAGL VPP plan you will need to:

    Be a residential customer with an eligible battery storage system (Tesla Powerwall 2 or SolarEdge/LG Chem HV), operating at their electricity supply address.

    Terms and conditions

    Things you need to know

    By signing up using this form, you agree to the terms outlined in the ActewAGL Virtual Power Plant Services Agreement.

    By signing up using this form, you also that you’re happy to sign up to the ActewAGL VPP plan (‘the Plan’) which is an Ongoing Market Retail Contract with an initial 12 month benefit period for your electricity and gas.

    Your first benefit period commences from when you accept the Plan or from when your account commences with ActewAGL if ActewAGL is not your current energy retailer.

    Your first benefit period will be one of the following, depending on your tariff type:

    Single rate: 9% less than the electricity reference price for 12 months and, if applicable, a 10% off gas usage charges for 12 months.

    Single rate with controlled load: 7% less than the electricity reference price for 12 months and, if applicable, a 10% off gas usage charges for 12 months.

    The lowest possible electricity price of this offer for ACT customers depends on your tariff type, and is as follows:

    Single rate: $1,902
    Single rate with controlled load: $2,440

    The above annual bill amounts are based on an indicative residential customer in the ACT. That is 6,100 kWh a year (without controlled load) and 8,800 kWh a year (with controlled load). Your bill will depend on your actual usage.

    Any discounts or credits will not apply to any miscellaneous ActewAGL charges, Greenchoice products or any government taxes, fees, charges or levies.

    Under ActewAGL’s Small Generator Buyback Scheme, a solar buyback rate of 10c/kWh for the first 10kWh per day, and 6c/kWh for all additional export, applies to the Plan.

    Following acceptance of the Plan, you will be supplied with information relevant to the Plan including pricing, terms and conditions, a single written disclosure statement and cancellation and cooling-off notice via your preferred contact method either email or post.

    You can cancel your agreement anytime by notifying ActewAGL in writing at ActewAGL Retail, 40 Bunda Street, Canberra ACT, 2600 by calling 13 14 93 or by emailing assist@actewagl.com.au

    You have the right to a Standard Retail Contract with the designated retailer for your area that may not include a credit or a discount on your electricity or gas account.

    You can raise disputes with ActewAGL. If you’re unhappy with the resolution provided, you can raise the dispute with the ACT Civil and Administrative Tribunal (ACAT) by calling 02 6207 7740.

    ActewAGL will contact you before your energy plan end date about a new benefit period. Your contract may be continued if you do not contact ActewAGL by the expiry of the energy plan.

    If you are not currently an ActewAGL customer, ActewAGL will become your retailer for electricity and gas after your meter is read next which may take up to four months.
