Solar insurance scheme launched

GGFi, the insurance division of the Glass & Glazing Federation, has launched its Solar Insure Insurance Backed Guarantee scheme for MCS accredited installers of solar PV and solar thermal systems. The scheme gives installers the opportunity to provide their domestic customers with Insurance Backed Guarantee (IBG) protection, protecting parts and workmanship for up to 10 years should the installer cease to trade.

GGFi general manager, Lee Appleton, elaborated: “Since it originated in 2005, GGFi has built an immense reputation for providing quality, cost-effective IBGs to the glazing industry, but we realise that one size does not fit all.

“We have taken our time putting the Solar Insure product together to make sure we get the mix absolutely right for MCS accredited installers. GGFi’s motto since we started in 2005 has been Quality Insurance Made Simple, and we have stuck to that ethos with the Solar Insure scheme.”

GGFi has waived the vetting fee to join the scheme providing you get your application in before the end of June 2012.
