Over the past five years, hail damage has caused more than 50% of total insured project losses. Though infrequent, these events can produce record losses. In 2022, hail losses exceeded $300 million in Texas alone.

In this pv magazine Webinar, we will assess the risk of hail, and gain an understanding of the insurance marketplace for utility-scale solar assets.

Today, banks want to see higher levels of natural catastrophe coverage, while insurers want to limit coverage amounts. This mismatch “is an existential threat to project development activities in hail-prone regions.” This is particularly true in Texas, the largest utility-scale solar market in the nation.

Technical subject matter experts from VDE Americas, JinkoSolar, and Descartes Underwriting will explore three ways to close the severe storm insurability and finance gap. These strategies include deploying hail-hardened PV modules, engaging a technical advisor to quantify risks, and supplementing traditional insurance with parametric policies.
