The Solar industry is dynamic, global, and an essential alternative energy technology. Whilst globalisation presents huge opportunities for growth and profit, overseas operations present additional risks, often not present in domestic operations. Legal, regulatory, and currency risks, along with cultural differences may arise, and gaining the confidence of Independent Power Producers (IPP), project financiers, commercial users and individual consumers is challenging. PV manufacturers with established track records, financial stability and the proven manufacturing capabilities that meet or exceed international standards, are the companies best positioned to win the trust of Solar consumers.
Whatever your business model, you can’t afford to be without insurance or with an insurance carrier that is not dedicated to the solar industry. An Enterprise Risk Management process that includes the purchase of product liability and Errors & Omissions (E&O) insurance will help protect a PV manufacturer from loss and limit the potential of alienated customers, suppliers and distributors, loss of market share, damaged reputation and diversion of key resources to handle complex litigation.
Risk management focused companies will enjoy a competitive advantage, particularly when dealing with foreign customers who are looking to do business with financially strong and stable companies that have good risk management procedures and are insured with an insurer that has a global presence.  
Longevity, experience or expertise are frequently cited as characteristics separating one insurer from another, but Chubb has been in business for over 130 years. Our philosophy is simple, develop deep industry exposure and partner with our customers to find cost efficient insurance solutions that meet or exceed their expectations. We have designed a range of liability insurance products to meet the complex needs of the Solar PV industry and to protect them from potential litigation threats. It’s no surprise that Chubb has become an insurer of choice for many Solar PV companies around the world.

A commitment to provide a market with global capabilities and stability, both today and tomorrow.

An industry this dynamic needs an insurer that will be around for a long time. Our top financial ratings, our dedication of resources to this industry, and our relationships with renowned testing organisations and industry associations demonstrate our lasting commitment to this emerging business.
