Sigora Haiti connected its first customer, the Mole-St-Nicolas Public Clinic, in December 2015. In less than one year Sigora developed, engineered, financed, and built its first microgrid in the town of Mole-St-Nicolas. Today, the grid counts ~4,000 accounts and provides 20,000 people with 24/7 electricity, a rarity in the Western Hemisphere’s most impoverished nation.
As the neighboring communities hear of the developments in Môle, they have bombarded the Sigora staff with calls, letters, and visits to encourage them to expand the project. Or as they put it: “moun yo swaf kouran” – the people are thirsty for power!
