Insurance group now offers a “green” policy

The Farmers Insurance Group now offers an eco-friendly product for Ohioans wishing to “go green”.
The product, called Eco-Rebuild is a supplement to homeowners’ insurance that provides $25,000 for extra costs incurred to rebuild or replace with “green” materials, according to a company news release.

The policy will also cover the cost of upgrading damaged property to meet new Energy Star requirements if the home is already an Energy Star Qualified Home. It also pays for recycling debris rather that disposal.

For more information, contact local agents David Hartley in Oregon or Rick Reichow in Perrysburg.
