History

In 2009 Harry Wolkenfelt established Solar Insurance & Finance. With his company he aimed to reduce the risks of an investment in a solar installation as much as possible, and to secure the revenues of the installation to make financing a solar installation simple and easy.

At first, Solar Insurance & Finance was mainly active in Belgium. Reason for this, was the stimulation of the purchase of solar installations in Belgium with so called green certificates, a specific subsidy. More countries decided to provide subsidies in order to stimulate sustainable energy, such as solar energy. This caused the development of an international market, which led to more and more international customers from a growing number of different countries. Since then, Solar Insurance & Finance has grown into a leading worldwide insurance specialist for solar insurances.

Since 2015 Solar Insurance & Finance has got a new name: Solarif.
