ProSight Specialty Insurance Extends OOPS Coverage to Solar Contractors Program

MORRISTOWN, New Jersey, September 12, 2016

ProSight Specialty Insurance today announced that it is enhancing its Solar Contractors program to include a first-of-its-kind Obstruction of Premises Supplemental (OOPS) coverage. This endorsement, which was previously introduced as a part of the company’s Luxury Home Builder’s program, is being extended to all solar contractors with a ProSight policy. Beyond the comprehensive general liability policy that comes standard, the OOPS endorsement delivers added peace-of-mind and protection against mistakes that cause a customer’s home to become uninhabitable.

“Solar energy professionals are inherently exposed to a number of risks throughout the design, installation and maintenance processes. Because of this, incorporating our OOPS coverage into our Solar Contractors program was a priority for us,” said Christy Fayette, program manager for ProSight’s Solar Contractors program. “Not only does this complimentary endorsement provide a competitive business advantage to our clients, but the extra layer of protection offers peace-of-mind—it puts the success of solar professionals front-and-center, and that is our goal.”

ProSight’s OOPS coverage for its Solar Contractors program includes the following features and benefits:

– Pays up to $5,000 in eligible living expenses or fair rental value in the event that a solar contractor’s customer’s home becomes uninhabitable during the project
– Allows for a reasonable reporting window—OOPS is available if solar contractors report an eligible loss within 30 days with proper documentation
– Extra protection when mistakes happen on the job; solar energy professionals can take comfort knowing they are receiving the gold-standard of insurance coverage for themselves and their customers

The OOPS enhancement further exemplifies ProSight’s commitment to providing tailored solutions to meet the ever-evolving needs of solar professionals and eliminating the need for multiple insurance carriers.
