AGL, claiming a place as the first major energy retailer to launch a mobile app in the Australian market nearly a year ago, says its latest app version, addresses real-time analytics about the performance and efficiency of a customer’s solar rooftop system to their electricity and gas usage data.
The app analyses rooftop system size and age, orientation and local weather conditions to give customers a clear snapshot of their solar system’s performance.
AGL Executive General Manager Energy Markets, Stephen Mikkelsen, said customers have said they are looking for access to information to enable them to be in more control of their home energy needs.
“Now, with our app, our customers have information about how well their solar system is performing and if it’s not optimised, they can have it fixed quickly and maximise their earning potential.
“With information like this available in real time, in future customers will be able to use the energy or sell it back to the grid on a daily, even hourly basis.”
The AGL app allows customers to pay bills, view billing information, make projections of future bills to help avoid bill surprises, as well as determine how much and how efficiently their solar system is producing electricity.
The app is free and currently available through the App Store and Google Play.
