Written by admin

July 11, 2024

When embarking on a solar panel installation project, it’s crucial to consider the various risks associated with the construction phase. Construction insurance provides essential coverage that protects against potential losses and damages during the installation process, ensuring that your investment remains secure. WINAICO’s comprehensive insurance policy safeguards your project from start to finish.

Why Construction Insurance Matters

Solar panel installations involve numerous steps, from the delivery of materials to the final commissioning of the system. During this construction phase, various risks can jeopardize the project, leading to significant financial losses. Construction insurance mitigates these risks by providing coverage against unforeseen events such as fire, theft, burglary, storms, and hail. This insurance is crucial for maintaining the integrity of the installation process and ensuring that the project stays on track.

WINAICO’s Comprehensive Construction Insurance

WINAICO offers an industry-leading insurance policy that begins as soon as the insured items are delivered to the designated location. This policy covers the entire construction phase, from delivery to commissioning, provided the insured party bears the related risk and completes the installation within one month. The coverage includes protection against:

  • Fire or Storms: Solar panel components are safeguarded against fire or storm damage during the installation process, ensuring that the project can proceed without costly setbacks.
  • Theft of Fitted Components: Once components are installed, they are protected against theft, preventing financial losses and delays in the project timeline.
  • Burglary of Stored Materials: Materials stored under lock and key are covered against burglary, provided they meet the minimum security requirements (fully enclosed building, locked outer doors, insulating-glass windows, or grilles).
  • Storage : Though it is a rare occurrence, occasionally panels can be damaged in storage but with construction insurance this is fully covered and poses no risk to the project.

How to Register for Coverage

To benefit from WINAICO’s comprehensive construction insurance, the system must be registered on the insurance portal. Coverage begins as soon as the insured items are delivered to the designated location, provided the related risks are borne by the insured party and the installation is carried out within one month. This streamlined registration process ensures that your project is protected from the moment materials arrive on site.

Benefits of Comprehensive Construction Insurance

  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your project is protected against a range of risks provides peace of mind, allowing you to focus on the installation process without worrying about potential setbacks.
  • Financial Security: Construction insurance mitigates financial losses caused by unforeseen events, ensuring that your investment is secure and that the project can proceed without costly interruptions.
