The Hartford Financial Services Group Inc. is greening up its home insurance products with new environmentally friendly features.
Updated products will include coverage for home-based electric vehicle charging stations as well as additional insurance coverage for green rebuilding projects. The latter coverage will be for the use of environmentally friendly materials or processes to make repairs after a covered loss or replacing items with more energy-efficient or environmentally friendly ones. The new features will be widely available by the end of the year, the company said.
Meanwhile, the insurer is installing electrical vehicle charging stations at its Hartford, Simsbury and Windsor, Conn., campuses.
"Electric vehicle charging stations will soon be an integral part of the American infrastructure, both at the workplace and in the home," The Hartford president and CEO Liam E. McGee said in a statement. "Installing electric vehicle charging stations and providing insurance coverage for them demonstrates our support for developing the electric vehicle market and our commitment to a cleaner environment."
