Solar Farm Insurance

Solar Farm Insurance

Owning a solar farm is a way to generate a lot of electricity and potentially be self-sustaining as well as being a lucrative investment. However, it’s also the case that when it comes to your solar farm, you need to have the right kind of safeguards in place to protect your assets. Solar farm insurance is a big part of something like this, and it is important for you to consider working with such a system in place.

Why Do You Need Solar Farm Insurance?

So why is it that you need to have Solar Farm Insurance? Well, it’s all about looking after yourself and your assets. Consider that you have a very expensive setup which gathers energy from the sun and uses it to create electricity. If one of those machines develops a fault, you’ll soon experience issues with performance and the amount of power you have.

This could lead to bigger issues such as a loss in revenue.

It’s also quite true that it can be quite expensive for someone to try and repair their damaged equipment. You don’t want to spend a lot of money to replace one or two solar panels when you can get an insurance policy for less that does it for you if they suffer from theft or damage.

Of course, we have a selection of different policies for you to take advantage of, showcasing all of the various options that we can provide for you. We know that every solar farm is different. At Just Quote Me, we want to find you the best possible cover for your specific needs. With a range of policies available from us, you can find as much or as little coverage as your solar farm needs.

Renewable Energy Insurance

Renewable Energy Insurance

Renewable Energy Insurance

Last year, renewable energy production in the UK rose to its highest-ever levels. To date, in 2019, it is responsible for almost 40% of all energy production. Large-scale operations such as off-shore wind farms generate much of this energy. However, more and more smaller producers are playing their part in producing renewable energy. All of these require renewable energy insurance.

Farmers and landowners, for example, have begun building wind turbines on their land, while businesses are adding solar panels to their properties. At the same time, specialist companies are setting up focused on areas such as Anaerobic Digestion or Hydroelectric power. While this is all a positive for the planet, it can lead to problems for the companies involved if they don’t have the right insurance.

Types of Renewable Energy Insurance

There are different types of renewable energy, however, all of which need a different type of insurance. These include:

  • Anaerobic digestion
  • Geothermal
  • Micro Hydroelectric
  • Solar and PV
  • Wind turbines and wind farms.

Different insurance will probably be needed depending on whether the business is in the process or starting up or fully operational.

Renewable Energy Insurance Coverage

In each instance, renewable energy insurance should cover:

  • Employers liability for if staff are injured at work
  • Public liability for if visitors or other members of the public are injured on-site
  • Professional indemnity for any negligence claims
  • Poor quality work (from contractors)
  • Delays in start-up
  • Legal expenses to respond to claims or place claims due to workmanship or delays
  • Damage, including fire and theft
  • Loss of revenue
  • Environmental impairment

Because of the complexities, anyone considering getting involved in renewable energy should speak to an industry professional such as Just Quote Me to ensure they are fully protected. Contact them today on 0800 084 2325 for a free, no-obligation, renewable energy insurance quote.

Solar Farm Insurance

What is Solar Farm Insurance?

Solar farms are now a common sight. They are great at renewable energy. However, with such useful and essential technology, it’s important to protect it. Getting commercial and domestic insurance can help safeguard your farm against natural and abnormal threats and solar farm insurance is no different.

Solar farms usually cover between an acre and 100 acres of land. It’s great that you have decided to take the initiative to create a renewable energy farm. However, you’re going to need insurance. Why do you need insurance?

Potential breakdown

If you’re starting your farm, chances are the substantial amount of profit won’t come until later. Therefore, before you’re making profits, if there is substantial damage to the solar panels and they need replacing, then you’re likely to need to pay huge lump sums. By having insurance, your insurance provider can help settle the costs.

Employer or public liability

This protects you or anyone who is at risk in and around the farm. Accidents do happen, especially when dealing with items at a great height or weight.

Damaged cells

You need to work hard to keep your solar panels clean and in working order. There are risks such as fire, hail and storm damage that you should consider. It’s normally included standard. However, you’d probably want to consider the loss of income if there is damage and the farm needs to halt for a while.

Adequate Farm Insurance Can Save Your Business

Adequate Farm Insurance Can Save Your Business

Even the most dedicated farmers will admit the industry has been on a downward curve, with diversification and other streams of income key to many farmers’ businesses now. However, the right insurance is absolutely key to protect your business, and specialist farm insurance should be arranged on an individual basis.

No two farms are even slightly the same which is why farm insurance is unique to you. We appreciate the modern outlook for the farming industry is very different to ten or twenty years ago and can help source and organise policies to reflect this.

 What Does Farm Insurance Cover?

What do you need your farm insurance to cover? Tailored insurance to cover your working farm or smallholding can incorporate cover for your machinery, vehicles and buildings. Livestock farmers can also have specific elements relating to their animals including loss of strays, theft, transit issues, fire and even electrocution.

Multi-vehicle use is common on most farms, you may have a range of vehicles from cars to vans to tractors and agricultural vehicles. It is possible to group farm vehicles together under single insurance policies and there are options for trailer cover too. Equally, single vehicle policies are possible for smaller businesses. The beauty of a personalised farm insurance policy is that it can reflect your business’ size and grow or shrink as it does.

Diversification and Additional Cover

As mentioned many farms have had to diversify into new areas to maintain a solid income. This could mean allowing visitors, opening petting zoos, cafes and more. With additional streams of business come additional risks. You may need to consider cover such as public liability insurance when inviting guests onto your premises and tailored policies have your business’ specific risks in mind.

Working in Agriculture: Why Farm Insurance is Essential

Working in Agriculture: Why Farm Insurance is Essential

The agricultural industry remains one of the highest risk and dangerous to work in. RIDDOR reports 27 fatal injuries in 2016/17 with 13,000 non-fatal injuries to workers every year. Not just worker injuries need to be considered either which is why insuring your farm and having a comprehensive farm insurance policy is essential.

Protecting your Livelihood with Farm Insurance

The British farming industry has not had the best of times recently. Many farmers have had to diversify to remain in business and others have had to fold. Those still working must protect their assets to ensure a better chance of a better and prosperous future.

Farm insurance comes in many forms, as there are so many different forms of farming. Dairy farmers will need a different policy to cattle farmers and those who simply farm the land will not need livestock insurance and vice versa.
