The Sigora microutility builds, owns and operates interconnected clean energy microgrids for community clusters of min. 5,000 people (~1000 accounts) per grid, creating a decentralized network and enabling the company to achieve economies of scale and thus operate sustainably. Colocating generation means we can scale installations to serve multiple clustered communities and enables cost savings compared to a single village microgrid model.
Sigora’s grid technology is designed to provide more than just power metering and production monitoring, it is an integrated micro-utility management system. The proprietary smart meter and cloud-based API software automate account management tasks, monitor the technical and financial performance of the grid, and provide real-time data analytics and meter control, enabling Sigora to troubleshoot and address problems before they become serious. The modular design of the system supplies a range of power to meet the dynamic energy needs of an energy emerging market.
Customers prepay for electricity, allowing them to make purchases in small installments that are in line with their energy needs and consumption patterns, while ensuring maximum revenue capture for the company. Sigora clients can purchase electricity through the local network of Sigora kWh vendors, online from outside the country, and directly via mobile money payments.
