THE SIGORA UTILITY

We put the power in your hands, so that you can build a better Haiti.

CLEAN

Household electricity displaces unhealthy alternatives like kerosene that are harmful to people and planet, at a fraction of the cost. Our hybrid grids incorporate solar and wind to help Haiti achieve its CO2 emission targets.

RELIABLE

24/7 electricity powers daily life without restrictions, from homes, to businesses, to industry. Energy is AC 120V, 240V, and 480V tailored to the needs of each customer and suitable for existing appliances. .

FAIRLY-PRICED

Pay-as-you-go energy with no monthly minimum spend means everyone gets connected - no customer is too small. Flexible payment options include mobile money, online purchases, and direct street vendor kWh purchases.

URBAN ELECTRICITY AT THE LAST MILE

  • The Sigora micro-utility is a new approach for the commercially viable and environmentally sustainable electrification of underserved & unconnected communities. We leverage our proprietary technology platform and broad experience in execution to rapidly install and scale smart energy micro-grids in Haiti.

UTILITY-MANAGEMENT ENGINEERED FOR FRONTIER MARKETS

  • It didn’t exist, so we built it. Our fully-vertically integrated utility–management platform streamlines bill collection, defends against energy theft, increases operational efficiency for improved service delivery and leverages existing infrastructure for rural internet access.

LOCAL EXPERTISE

  • Over 90% of our staff hail from the local community and are trained in-house. From carrying out community assessments, to developing generation and transmission plans, construction and O&M, our teams are making clean, reliable, and fairly-priced energy a reality in Haiti’s most remote regions.

TRIPLE BOTTOM LINE RETURNS

  • Our customers get 24/7 productive energy at a cost that is less than what they are paying per kWh for alternatives like candles and kerosene. Local governments are able to fulfill their pledge to electrify their constituencies. And investors get bankable returns.

SIGORA MICRO-GRIDS

We connected our first customer, the Mole-St-Nicolas Public Clinic, in December 2015. In under 12 months, we developed, engineered, and financed our first micro-grid.

Today, Sigora operates two micro-grids and one pico-grid, with a fruther grid under construction, providing clean, reliable, and affordable power to nearly 10,000 people under a 25-year power supplier contract with the municipality.

SCALING-UP

Sigora has signed and has ratified agreements to bring power to four communes and the surrounding areas in Haiti’s Northwest department. In 2018, Sigora plans to connect 10,000 accounts, benefiting 50,000 people with clean, reliable, and fairly-priced power.
