About us

AGL Energy

AGL was created in 1837 to light the streets of Sydney. We’re proudly one of Australia’s oldest companies and, from the beginning, we have always asked the question, 'What next'?

What new technologies can be developed to provide safe, sustainable and reliable energy to more people? What new ways can we support the communities we operate in? What can we do to help our customers reduce their energy usage and their environmental footprint?

Today, AGL is committed to helping shape a sustainable energy future for Australia. We operate the country’s largest electricity generation portfolio, we’re its largest ASX-listed investor in renewable energy, and we have more than 3.6 million customer accounts. Proudly Australian, with more than 180 years of experience, we have a responsibility to provide sustainable, secure and affordable energy for our customers. Our aim is to prosper in a carbon-constrained world and build customer advocacy as our industry transforms. That’s why we have committed to exiting our coal-fired generation by 2050 and why we will continue to develop innovative solutions for our customers.

We’re an organisation of more than 3,600 people across 20 sites and offices, united by four values: Safety and beyond, Sustainable thinking, Inclusive of all and Focused on what matters. We offer an industry leading 20 weeks of paid parental leave and flexible working for all roles. We also have family and domestic violence support policies for AGL people and customers.

As an essential service provider, we take our position in our customers’ homes and businesses seriously. Which is why we're committed to supporting our customers and the communities we operate in. We’re here for our customers when times are tough, through our hardship and affordability programs. We’re also proud supporters of our charity partners and we reinvest in the communities where we operate.
