Renewable Guard, Hailsure Join Hands to Develop a New Parametric Hail Insurance Program to Renewable Energy Projects

Renewable Guard | April 30, 2020

Renewable Guard Insurance Brokers, LLC is pleased to announce a new partnership with Hailsure Underwriting Managers, LLC to deliver a new parametric hail insurance program. Hailsure is a leading specialist in developing innovative solutions that incorporate parametric insurance across a range of different markets. The trigger for coverage and payout is determined by the size of the largest hail that falls on the renewable energy project site. Renewable Guard Insurance Brokers, LLC a leading independent renewable energy insurance brokerage firm, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Hailsure Underwriting Managers, LLC to deliver a new parametric hail insurance program to renewable energy developers. Hailsure is a leading specialist in developing innovative solutions that incorporate parametric insurance across a range of different markets. Parametric insurance is an innovative type of policy where coverage is "triggered" when a measurable event occurs which exceeds a set threshold; in this case, a significant hailstorm. Hail size is measured by the largest independent weather data provider in the country through the use of advanced 3D radar, an onsite hail station, and a series of weather algorithms that utilize multiple data sources, including the National Weather Service. The trigger for coverage and payout is determined by the size of the largest hail that falls on the renewable energy project site. Read More:NEXT INSURANCE LAUNCHES PROGRAM TO ASSIST SMALL BUSINESSES Advantages of Parametric coverage for renewable energy project sites include: Easy Integration into existing project-level coverage Flexible Terms (e.g., variable coverage limits, hail size triggers) Fast Claims (payment within 7-10 business days) without the requirement of traditional on-site claims adjustments. The property insurance marketplace has hardened significantly in 2020 and developers in the renewable energy industry have felt the effects. Carriers providing traditional project-level insurance have seen a significant increase in catastrophic losses due to convective storms and hail damage. 2019 saw one of the industry's largest single hail loss ever with damage to a Texas-based solar project in the tens of millions of dollars. The increasing severity and unpredictable nature of convective storms have required many project-level carriers to implement sub-limits for hail, while also increasing hail deductibles. The option to obtain additional hail limits via excess markets has, in essence, become commercially nonviable due to hard market rate increases. Adding parametric hail gives the existing project-level insurance program an extra and important dimension of coverage by providing developers and their lending partners with peace of mind and protection against the serious financial impact of major hailstorms. - says Michael Cosgrave, Principal at Renewable Guard.
