With renewable energy expected to be the fastest growing source of U.S. electricity generation for at least the next two years, local solar installer Sigora Solar is humbled to be recognized by Solar Power World as the Most Forward-Thinking Company of 2019. This award celebrates solar installers devoted to making progress in energy and beyond for a more sustainable future. Sigora Solar also achieved a rank of #1 Solar Company in the state of Virginia and #30 among the top residential solar companies in the United States on the magazine’s 2019 Top Solar Contractors list.
Sigora Solar was founded in 2011 and now boasts over 150 employees with operations in 13 states across the country. The company’s unique ‘Produce and Reduce’ package includes a complimentary energy efficiency audit, performed by a BPI Goldstar-certified team, that identifies the home’s inefficiencies. Customers then receive customized energy efficiency upgrades to maximize their home’s performance and energy savings, along with a Pearl Home Certification, documenting all the improvements. No money down, low interest financing options, and production guarantees make Sigora’s ‘Produce and Reduce’ package accessible and affordable to the masses and allow homeowners to experience immediate monthly savings.
Sigora further differentiates itself as a top company through its ‘One for One’ program running in rural Haiti. Through a collaboration with its sister company, Sigora Haiti and the non-profit Hummingbird Academy for Disaster Preparedness and Renewable Energies (HADPRE), Sigora provides free electricity to one home in Haiti for every residential installation performed in the U.S. For every commercial installation in the U.S., a Haitian clinic or school receives free electricity for 5 years. Through this partnership, 25,000 people, who previously had no access to electricity, now have 24/7 access to clean, reliable electricity. For the first time, these localities are booming and entrepreneurial activity continues to increase as people return to the region to start their own businesses.
As Sigora Solar CEO, Logan Landry, explains: “We are a humble family here at Sigora Solar, but that doesn’t take away from the immense pride each one of us has in our work. Not only are we empowering our customers, but we’re giving them the opportunity to also empower a family in Haiti by providing them with electricity.”
