Tradesman Saver’s Public Liability Cover For Solar Panel Installers
Our standard cover is:
- Up to £5 million cover for public and products liability
- £10,000 cover for any financial loss (£50K cover optional)
- Worldwide liability cover for temporary work abroad for up to 14 days (excluding the USA and Canada)
There are many insurance options which would benefit your solar panel installers business, and public liability is one of the most significant. This protects you if your work ends up damaging a client’s property or injuring a client or member of the public. For example, you may need to pay compensation if a client trips over your tools and is injured or you accidentally damage a customer’s carpet with your muddy work boots.
Claims such as this can cost a small fortune but having public liability cover means you won’t be responsible for paying any of the resulting expenses. You can purchase this as part of our automatic package, which also covers you for financial loss, legal expenses, and more.
Other relevant insurance policies for a solar panel installers business include employer’s liability, which is a legal requirement for anybody who employs staff, and professional indemnity insurance. Here at Tradesman Saver we have all the coverage you may need as a solar panel installer and you can get your quote online in minutes.

Solar Panel Installers – How We Can Help!
Working in such a high risk trade requires good quality protection. How would you manage if somebody made a claim against you and you had to foot the bill? Could your business survive huge legal costs and compensation claims? That’s where our specialist insurance can be your saviour. See examples below of where we can help:
Fall From Roof
You’re on a job with one of your employees, fitting a solar panel to a roof. But as your employee is climbing the ladder, the ladder collapses and your employee falls to the ground, gravely injuring themselves. They decide to file for compensation against you. This is where your employer’s liability insurance comes in handy – your insurer will cover the costs of the compensation, to allow you to continue doing what you do best.
You’re installing a solar panel on a client’s roof. As you’re fitting it to the roof, you accidentally knock one of your tools off and it slips off, hitting a pedestrian as they’re walking by. They choose to seek compensation from you. In this instance, your public liability insurance will protect you – it will pay out the costs of the compensation for you, so you’re free to focus on making your business a success.
