AGL POWERHOUSE IN ENERGY TO HOLD COMMUNITY MEETINGS IN WIDE BAY & FRASER COAST QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA

April 16th, 2012

Learn how you could reduce your electricity bills at one of these community meetings to be held in Maryborough, Hervey Bay & Bundaberg by AGL.

Come along to this free community meeting to learn four great ways to help reduce your electricity bill.
We will have experts at the meeting who will be on hand to explain:
> How solar power systems work and whether solar power is right for you.
> How to access the federal and state government incentives.
> Ten common mistakes to avoid when going solar.
> How you can go solar without large upfront costs.

5 reasons to come along:
The knowledge you gain from this free community meeting could help you save energy and money

************************************************************************************

1. Protect yourself from rising electricity bills.
By generating your own electricity, you could reduce your electricity usage charges and help protect yourself from rising electricity prices.
2. Go solar now and make the most of the government incentive
The federal government’s solar incentive is set to drop by 33% from 1 July and to qualify for the current incentive, solar power systems must be fully installed before then.
But you need to act now, because to ensure installation in time, we need to receive deposits before 12 May 2012.1
3. Learn the advantages of going solar with a trusted company.
AGL has been a trusted energy company for 175 years, so you can be confident that we will support you from inquiry to installation.
4. We make solar affordable.
With our payment plan, you can go solar by paying only $199 upfront for installation of a 1 kW system, then pay your system off from $2.45 a day over 2 years (total minimum cost of $1,990 or from $1,699 without a payment plan).2
5. Maximise the return for any electricity you feed into the grid.
As a retailer, AGL offers an 8 cent premium on top of the amount payable under the Solar Bonus Scheme, giving you a great return on the electricity you feed into the grid.3
