Insurance services available

  • SSR Combined - Liability schemes underwritten by QBE

There is an ever-growing importance on the future of renewable energy, and we offer a scheme tailored to the insurance needs of those contractors who specialise in the renewables industry.

With the environmental impact of the use of fossil fuels being a global concern, customers are turning to green energy solutions and we provide the insurance that the installers of these solutions require.


Whether your client is installing domestic solar panels or providing maintenance services on a wind farm, we can accommodate many trades under this product. In addition, we can also cover working at height along with ancillary trades. You may not find many insurers who have an appetite for risks of this nature.


You can find full details of the cover available in the policy summary and wording below, but significant benefits of our scheme including inefficacy up to the full PL limit, failure to supply to the National Grid, defective workmanship cover where there is damage to third party property or injury, temporary removal of customers goods and financial loss (including products). We also have a great range of optional extensions for your clients, such as fidelity bonding, damage to that part worked on (ideal for working on high value products), trace and access and escape of metered water.


Although our scheme is liabilities led, we can also offer a full package of covers to include Commercial All Risks, Business Interruption, Contract Works, Professional Indemnity, Property Terrorism, Legal Expenses, Directors & Officers Liability and Fidelity Guarantee.
