Energy is opportunity.
We envision communities where children can study at night, adults have ample job opportunities, and businesses flourish. We envision countries where people are empowered by power.

Through the development and deployment of end-to-end energy solutions engineered specifically for last-mile energy and internet connectivity, we help catalyze economic growth & poverty reduction in underserved communities. By providing an affordable, safe and reliable 24/7 energy supply to homes, businesses, and public service providers, we empower households to move up the energy ladder and enhance socioeconomic activity and outcomes for local businesses and the community overall.

To meet our empowerment objectives, we’ve adopted a data-driven approach to track our impact. Drawing on a combination of consumption data, customer feedback, and ongoing evaluation of our services in the field, our impact monitoring strategy gives us insight into how customers are leveraging energy access to improve their well-being and that of the wider community. We've drawn on internationally recognized research from leading institutions like the World Bank (WB) & the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), and the Global Off-Grid Lighting Association (GOGLA) to develop metrics that capture the multi-dimensionality of energy access for our customers.

Access to energy is vital to economic, social and human development. To be meaningful for households, productive enterprises and community facilities, the energy supply supporting that access must have a number of attributes: it must be adequate in quantity, available when needed, of good quality, reliable, convenient, affordable, legal, healthy, and safe.

Not all electrification is equal.
Binary metrics for tracking energy access - based on whether a household has a grid connection-  fail to capture the multifaceted
nature of access to electricity.

When it comes to thriving in modern societies, electricity is most meaningful in the context of “productive use.” Namely, this means sufficient energy supply to pump clean water on demand or accomplish some value-added economic activity for one’s own livelihood.

But, if the electricity supply from the grid is poor, this can limit its usefulness. The use of electricity may also be constrained if it is unaffordable, while illegal connections can cause significant financial losses to the utility, which may be passed on to the consumer while also increasing the risk of accidents for users.

Therefore to measure only whether or not a household has a connection to the grid does not capture the qualities of energy access that make it useful to the end-user.

To measure its own energy supply, Sigora uses the internationally recognized framework set forth by the Energy Sector Management Assistance Programme (ESMAP). The Multi-Tier Framework breaks electricity access into 6 tiers from 0-5, where successive thresholds for supply attributes allow increased use of electrical appliances.

Sigora Haiti exceeds all 6 of the highest Tier benchmark metrics.

Access to productive energy changes lives. It can reduce human effort, enhance comfort and enable telecommunications, education and better heathcare, while also extending useful waking hours. It can reduce the time spent on the drudgery of fuel gathering, benefiting women and girls in particular, and curb the health-damaging impacts from smoky cookstoves.

We are supporting progress towards the SDGs through improved energy access.


The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Launched in 2015, UN member states use these 17 universal goals to frame their agendas and political policies around international development. Sustainable Development Goal #7 is to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. Energy underpins efforts to achieve the entire spectrum of development objectives — from reducing extreme poverty to enhancing food security, from powering essential health services to providing electricity for education. It is critical for improving the health and livelihoods of billions of people around the world, and it is interconnected with all of the other SDGs. By driving forward progress towards SDG7, we are supporting progress against all Global Goals!

What our customers are saying

Sigora Haiti Customer, Mole-St-Nicolas

The advantage is that I needed a lot of gas for the night or to use the freezer. Since Sigora I have used electricity and it is more beneficial for me because I spend less. When you do not have money you cannot buy gas. Now even with a dollar, you can buy electricity.

Now we have the power to do anything.

Sigora Haiti Customer, Mole-St-Nicolas

My mother used to make me study with (kerosene) lamps and it made my eyes water. I don’t let my kids study with the lamps because I know the pain. Now I can switch on my light early in the morning to help them study. Electricity means I can give my children opportunities I never had growing up. 

Sigora Haiti Customer, Mole-St-Nicolas

Before everything stopped when the sun set. We used to sleep with one eye open. Now, the community is alive late into the night. Business is better, and because of the light, we are less likely to get robbed.
