Utility Service Interruption Coverage

Utility Service Interruption Coverage

Definition

Coverage for loss due to lack of incoming electricity caused by damage from a covered cause (such as a fire or windstorm) to property away from the insured's premises—usually the utility generating station. Also referred to as "off-premises power coverage." Not provided in a standard property insurance policy but available by endorsement. Utility service interruption coverage endorsements vary widely as to what utility services are included, whether both direct damage and time element loss are covered, and whether transmission lines are covered.
