Without photovoltaic all-risk insurance(electronics insurance) or fully comprehensive insurance, it is best not to operate a photovoltaic system. This insurance is a must for operators. PV all-risk insurance covers most of the damage that can occur to your PV system itself. This insurance cover applies from the time the system is commissioned and not before, even if the insurance has already been taken out.

What can happen?

Material damage:

Allianz offers so-called all-risk cover. This covers, for example, damage caused by

  • Fire, lightning, explosion (incl. short circuit, overcurrent, overvoltage)
  • Storm, hail, frost, snow pressure
  • Earth subsidence, landslide, rockfall
  • Design, material and execution errors
  • Theft, vandalism, malice
  • Operating errors, clumsiness
  • Failure of the measurement and control technology

In addition to the restoration costs, Allianz covers a large number of other costs that may arise as a result of property damage, e.g. clean-up, decontamination and disposal costs, movement and protection costs, air freight costs, costs for earthworks, paving, bricklaying and chiseling work as well as the provision of scaffolding.

Loss of earnings:

If electricity production is interrupted due to an insured loss, Allianz will pay you a lump sum for each kilowatt peak affected per day of downtime.

Liability claims:

The insurance covers legal liability claims. In the event of a claim, Allianz will check whether and to what extent you can be held liable. It pays compensation if it is justified and defends unjustified claims against you.

Photovoltaic all-risk insurance - Allianz deductible

In the event of damage to your photovoltaic system, the deductible for photovoltaic all-risk insurance is generally 250 euros. The deductible for loss of earnings insurance is two days.

What is compensated and is there a yield guarantee?
