Solar Contractor Insurance

The "green" solar energy industry is growing at a rapid rate especially here in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and the rest of the New England.  With government support for alternative energy programs, there are many opportunities for:

  • solar contractors and solar panel installers
  • solar operators and owners
  • solar project coordinators and financers
  • solar risk managers
  • power purchase agreement owners

Regardless of the care with which you and your company performs services, things can go wrong for which you’re responsible. The alternative energy industry has unique risk exposures that aren’t covered by traditional insurance policies. To properly protect you and your “green” solar energy business, you need to have the right solar contractor insurance protection.

As a local Massachusetts insurance agent serving all of New England, Murphy Insurance Agency understands these solar contractor risk management issues and has access to programs specifically tailored to handle the property and liability exposures of solar and renewable energy contractors. We're an NESEA member and speak your language. You can count on our commitment to helping you succeed and grow by protecting you from financial risk that could be devastating without insurance coverage. We’ll meet with you, analyze your current and potential risks and create a solar contractor insurance protection plan that fits your business needs and minimizes your financial exposure.
