Coverage for Alternative Energy Risks

Complete Solutions for Alternative Energy

The demand for alternative energy continues to grow, with 10% of U.S. energy consumption sourced from hydroelectric, biofuels, wood products, wind power, solar, recycled waste, and geothermal energy providers.

In addition to providing coverage for traditional energy risks, Vela Insurance Services, a Berkley Company, is able to create coverage for a variety of contractors and manufacturers with alternative energy exposures.

Energy Liability Sell Shet
Vela's underwriters and risk specialists can create coverage that addresses the unique risks of alternative energy, including contractor's pollution liability, products pollution, and additional insured coverage for vendors, completed operations, and contractors. 

Products and services described above are provided through various surplus lines insurance company subsidiaries of W. R. Berkley Corporation and offered through licensed surplus lines brokers. Not all products and services may be available in all jurisdictions, and the coverage provided by an insurer is subject to the actual terms and conditions of the policies issued. Surplus lines insurance carriers do not generally participate in state guaranty funds and insureds are therefore not protected by such funds. This material does not amend, or otherwise affect, the provisions or coverages of any insurance policy issued. It is not a representation that coverage does or does not exist for any particular claim or loss under any such policy. Coverage depends on the facts and circumstances involved in the claim or loss, all applicable policy provisions and any applicable law. Availability of coverage referenced in this document can depend on underwriting qualifications and state regulations.

Vela Insurance Services conducts business as Vela Insurance Services, LLC in California as a licensed surplus lines broker
