Florida homeowners installing solar panels are being dropped by insurance companies, creating concerns and insurance shuffling.
The surge in solar panel installations after Hurricane Ian has prompted insurers to cancel coverage for these homeowners. While some insurers recognize the benefits of solar panels, others have yet to adjust their coverage policies.
Homeowners are advised to notify their insurance agents about solar panel installations and seek alternative coverage if necessary.
Installing solar panels on older roofs is discouraged, as their lifespan may be compromised. Precautionary measures should be taken to avoid coverage issues when going solar.
