Drought and solar assistance for farmers

Unpredictable and intense weather conditions are impacting farming communities across Australia. AGL’s Farmers Assist program looks to give farmers greater control and certainty during these challenging times with two new assistance packages available.

Drought Relief Assistance offers eligible AGL customers, who are drought-affected farmers, the opportunity to wipe up to $1,500 (incl GST) of existing debt (as of 18 June 2019) from their AGL business energy account (total across gas/electricity).

Solar Assistance allows eligible drought-affected farmers to receive an upfront discount of between $2,500 -$25,000 (excl GST) on the cost of an AGL supplied and installed solar panel system (between 10kW and 100kW in size).

Simply head to agl.com.au/farmersassist to complete a quick online application. Alternatively, call AGL’s Drought Relief Assistance helpline on 131 245 or dedicated Solar Assistance helpline on 1300 361 391 to chat to their friendly team.
