Switching and moving with AGL

AGL allows its customers the flexibility to switch as well as move their energy accounts. If you plan to switch to AGL, in terms of documentation, you’ll need a form of personal identification such as your driver’s license, Medicare card or passport along with a valid email address.

If you’re an existing customer and you’re moving home, you can arrange for your energy connection to be moved online or over the phone. AGL’s customer care is active 24 hours a day all through the week. They even have a separate number for hearing impaired customers.

You will however, need to check on the eligibility criteria for moving your connection in specific regional locations.

    Sceptical but appreciative of reliability

    I've discovered that I don't know a lot about 'green energy' as such . It's not that I'm ignorant of carbon emissions and footprints.., it just seems more complex and standards seem to change all the time. I try to stay informed but there's a lot I don't understand, nor is anyone able to explain it in a way that makes sense. I've shopped around and tried various energy providers but I seem to always go back to the 'big guys', just like the banks, phone companies and internet providers.. the prices seem competitive.. and suits my budget, (if that is a thing anymore..) And I love a service that is reliable and doesn't succumb to interruptions (unless by act of god) I don't mind paying for the extra piece of mind for a reliable service...

    Not trustworthy business.

    AGL sign up process was easy. App is useful for energy usage insights on the go. Bills are easy to read. Customer chat is responsive but that's where I then draw the line. I no longer trust AGL. When I reached out to their customer support for financial support telling them that the existing payment plan was unsustainable they instead offered me a payment plan at a higher rate. Then I enquired about a change of plan. They explicitly told me that their new Netflix plan was cheaper. Since they said it was cheaper I agreed to move to it. I wish I had paid more attention because it turns out that it's not cheaper at all. Their new rate was +2c more for general, +3c for demand and +10c for supply. Then they're also charging a card payment processing fee and whatever else they feel they can scab off customers and then add a Netflix plan on top. So literally every rate was more expensive, they tried to push me to a more unaffordable payment agreement and offered me absolutely nothing. When I told them of my reasons for asking for support and so on they offered to mail me forms for a hardship program (yes, mail - snail mail, post, not email). They're just cold hearted salesmen with no customer service skills or empathy. I'm switching retailers, I don't trust AGL anymore.

    Quality lender

    AGL have always been a great energy provider. I feel confident in them as they have been around for a long time and are local. When I phone with any questions, they answer in a timely manner - not on hold for long minutes or hours. Their app is user friendly and helps answer many of the smaller queries I have at times.
