Question regarding off-grid insurance

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

My dad and I had recently read the question you answered regarding Solar Home Insurance, and he wants to know if the response you had given to the question is subject to be updated? We are also having problems finding adequate homeowner’s insurance for an off-grid property.

He wants to know if the information you had givin in the response is outdated or not. Has the definition of off-grid changed much in Insurance companies’ opinions since more off-grid and solar energy homes have been built? Has it gotten easier to find Insurance for these types of property?

Any information that can be given will be much appreciated.

Thank you



All of the information I provided to the earlier question about insurance should still be valid, except that things are getting better. I am even starting to see ads from lending institutions for solar home loans so I would assume they would have worked out the insurance problems if they are loaning money to buy or build a solar home.

I would do an Internet search and this should point you in the right direction.

Good Luck!
