AGL Home Energy Assessment
What is an AGL Hardship Audit and why have I been contacted by YESS?
AGL is an essential service provider and have a responsibility to ensure that they provide appropriate support to vulnerable members of the community. Life changes, the unexpected can happen and energy costs can be the cause of stress in the household budget. As part of AGL’s Affordability Initiatives and Payment Difficulty Framework, AGL have engaged Your Energy Saving Solutions (YESS) to provide customers of AGL with a Home Energy Assessment (also known as Audit), to their customers who fall into this group and/or are identified as Hardship Customers, and/or would like to find out how to use energy in their home more efficiently.
