The Green Utility

Helping people in Haiti tap the power of the sun.

CLEAN

Solar and wind are clean, renewable sources of energy, replacing the burning of carbon and the noise of diesel generators.

RELIABLE

24/7 electricity will be a first in many parts of Haiti, and will greatly improve health, education, and safety.

FAIRLY-PRICED

Pricing that is both fair and sustainable makes operating the utility and growing its scale possible.

To show you how important electricity is in the life of a country, let me define electricity for you this way: Electricity is life.

- Kalebe Verdieu, 44, Director of Electricité d'Haïti in Jérémie -

ABOUT US

Sigora Haiti is a Business Model with a Vision

Sigora Haiti started with a small dream of electrifying a clinic and has grown into a full scale Green Utility project. Our 10 year plan is to electrify 2 million people by 2025. This year we opened an office in Port-au-Prince, where we are launching an ambitious pilot program. Not only are we building a lasting relationship with the Haitian community, but we have designed and developed a micro-grid system to provide an affordable, efficient and sustainable power supply.

Sigora's work is already underway having purchased 2.5 acres of land for Photovoltaic installations and 195 acres for wind energy and our Solar Academy. We've signed a 50 year power supplier contract with Môle-Saint-Nicolas, secured partnerships with key vendors and have developed a metering technology ready for domestic manufacturing. The Sigora Meter, a proprietary prepaid energy metering technology, has built in demand control, community wide emergency alert and energy monitoring.

Consider the facts

  • 75 percent of people there are not connected to the national power grid.
  • Most of the energy consumed is fossil-fuel based.
  • Instead of 24/7 power, some places are lucky to have 2/7 power.
  • 50 percent of the power generated is lost to theft.

A SIGORA INITIATIVE

We formed Sigora Haiti as a business model with a vision.

What began as a dream to bring electricity to a clinic in Môle St. Nicholas has evolved into a full-scale green utility project.  With community support and working with a team of investors, Sigora Haiti is developing the necessary infrastructure to generate and distribute wind and solar power to the people of Haiti–power that is clean, reliable, and affordable.  Our goal is to generate 116,000kW of power for nearly 2 million people and create 5,800 jobs in the process by the year 2025.
