Launched in FY19, the Powering our Community Solar Fund is a new initiative whereby AGL employees are able to nominate local community groups to receive an AGL-donated and installed solar system. An employee-based committee selects the most worthy entries, based upon their contribution to social and economic inclusion. By directing funds to this initiative, AGL will be able to maximise local community engagement and encourage employee support for local community organisations.
AGL's financial contribution to the community increased in FY19, primarily due to an increase in employee fundrasing as well as the Crib Point Community Fund. A seven percentage point decrease in employee volunteering participation led to a decrease in community contribution in this area. The decrease in contribution from AGL's Energy for Life Strategic Partnerships was due to Energy For Life funds being reallocated to the Powering our Community Solar Fund.
