Today, AGL Energy in an Australian industry first is making AGL Free Power Saturdays available for eligible Victorian residential customers*.

Customers who sign up to the plan will receive 100% free electricity on Saturday's for a year. General Manager Marketing and Retail Sales, Mark Brownfield said offering customers a day of free electricity can help them reduce their energy costs, particularly if they use appliances such as washing machines and dryers on Saturdays. With this plan, customers will be able to run these appliances without any power costs on a Saturday. For families, who tend to be home more on weekends, it can also take the burden out of what could easily be the highest  usage day of the week.

Free Power Saturdays also gives customers more control and flexibility over their electricity bills. Customers can move things around to maximise the benefit they receive,” said Mr Brownfield.

"We asked customers what they thought about a range of digitally enabled products and Free Power Saturdays was a very popular option, along with a couple of other products which we'll be launching later this year. Customers are clearly telling us they want more control and choice".

“AGL recognises that people are busy on Saturdays and that some of their day may be spent cleaning the house, putting on multiple loads of washing and cooking for the family. AGL Free Power Saturdays lets people get household chores out of the way and enjoy being home without worrying about how much power they use. We want customers to maximise the benefit of the plan and wherever it’s practical, we’d encourage them to shift any discretionary power usage to a Saturday,” said Mr Brownfield.

We are recommending that customers review their current usage through My AGL IQ or a similar online tracking tool to understand their weekly consumption pattern. AGL Free Power Saturdays is available to residential digital metered customers in Victoria.
