This rapid increase in the severity of solar insurance claims and the associated hikes in insurance premiums can prove very significant in increasing the ongoing costs associated with large scale solar projects. It is going to be very interesting to see how the insurance industry reacts to this. 

In particular a major concern now is the increased deployment of solar in regions that are more prone to extreme weather conditions and natural catastrophes. 

The irony is that extreme weather conditions are a direct consequence of climate change, the exact phenomenon solar and other renewable technologies have been developed in order to avoid.
