Aviva and Howden partner to offer solar insurance

Aviva and Howden have teamed up to create an insurance package for Sunsave ‘s solar subscription service.

Founded in 2022, the London-based startup offers homeowners a solar subscription service.

According to Sunsave’s site, the coverage is available with the Sunsave Plus package and includes insurance for damage, theft, third-party liability and any financial losses if the system isn’t working for a prolonged period of time.

“As a leading insurer, we regularly see the impacts of climate change on our customers and communities, for example, through weather events such as flooding or subsidence. By taking steps now to minimize our environmental impacts, collectively we can get ready for the future. We all have an important role to play in supporting the transition to Net Zero and bespoke policies like this can help to encourage environmentally friendly ideas to become reality. By working closely with both Sunsave and Howden, we’re supporting the accessibility and affordability of renewable electricity for households. I’m really pleased that Aviva continues to play a leading role in the renewables space and I look forward to seeing the impact of this and future partnerships.” – Nick Evans, Deputy Head of Renewable Energy at Aviva.

“Howden is proud to have partnered with Aviva to deliver an effective insurance product that gives Sunsave insurance customers peace of mind in the event the solar and battery systems are damaged. Insurance has a crucial role to play in enabling the energy transition to be successful, and we will continue to work with clients and markets globally to innovate and support growth in the renewable energy sector.” – Deborah Duss, Global Head of Renewable Energy, Howden.

“We are delighted to have worked with Aviva and Howden to put in place an innovative insurance cover enabling us to launch the UK’s first solar subscription service. This cover provides peace of mind for our customers and marks another important milestone in bringing the power of solar to all households across the UK.” – Ben Graves, Co-Founder at Sunsave.
