MEMBER for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall has today announced a new partnership with AGL Energy (AGL) that will allow the region’s NSW Seniors Card to access discounted energy plans.
Mr Marshall said that local seniors across the Northern Tablelands were now being encouraged to take advantage of potential savings now available on their electricity and solar bills through this new partnership.
“I am very pleased that the NSW Government is delivering on its election commitment to expand the Seniors Card program and ease cost of living pressures for local seniors across our region,” Mr Marshall said.
“With AGL’s seniors offer, Seniors Card holders in NSW can receive a 20 per cent discount off electricity usage charges.
“In addition to the discount, seniors who switch their electricity to AGL before 30 June will also get a $50 credit on each of their accounts.
“Seniors looking to purchase a solar system have access to two special offers through the AGL program.
“Seniors who purchase a system outright will receive an initial $100 credit on their AGL electricity bill.
“Seniors Card holders who take up AGL’s Senior Solar Smart Plan will save at least $200 off the solar energy plan compared to regular customers over their entire contract (7 -12 years).
“NSW Senior Card holders will also receive a 5 per cent discount off AGL tradespeople and appliances (heating, cooling and hot water).”
AGL General Manager, Marketing & Retail Sales, Mark Brownfield said AGL was delighted to be partnering with the Seniors Card program to provide NSW seniors with great energy offers and a range of other benefits.
“AGL’s energy offer gives NSW Seniors Card holders access to competitive discounts off their gas and electricity usage charges as well special offers on solar and a range of other benefits. We also have a dedicated senior’s line to answer any questions seniors might have about the program,” Mr Brownfield said.
