July 2021: Sigora Solar

Founded in 2011 and headquartered in Charlottesville, Virginia, Sigora Solar is the largest residential solar provider in Virginia and a top 25 residential solar installer in the US. Sigora has been consistently named one of Inc. 5000’s fastest-growing companies and was recognized as Solar Power World’s “Most Forward-Thinking Contractor in the US” for their innovative Produce & Reduce package that includes a BPI GoldStar Energy Audit, energy efficiency upgrades, PEARL Home Certification and a “double money back” solar production guarantee. 

Sigora further differentiates itself as a leading company through its ‘One for One’ program in Northwest Haiti, organized through a collaboration with its sister company Sigora Haiti and the non-profit Hummingbird Academy for Disaster Preparedness and Renewable Energies (HADPRE). ‘One for One’ provides electricity access to one home in Haiti for every residential solar installation completed in the U.S., a partnership that has provided over 25,000 people with reliable power. 

Sigora’s overall mission is to help customers reduce their energy bills, sustain the quality of the environment, and contribute positively to the advancement of the clean energy economy worldwide. They are committed to creating a lasting, positive impact on every community they touch.    

Key Energy Efficiency Offerings  

The company’s unique ‘Produce & Reduce’ package identifies home inefficiencies through a complimentary energy audit performed by BPI certified professionals. Homeowners then receive custom energy efficiency upgrades to maximize their home’s performance and energy savings, along with a Pearl Home Certification that documents all the improvements. With no money down, low interest financing and “double money back” production guarantees, Sigora’s Produce & Reduce package is accessible and affordable for homeowners to accrue monthly savings through clean and efficient energy, enabling a unique product offering in the industry.   

To demonstrate its commitment to clean energy and the climate, Sigora has joined The Community Climate Collaborative (C3) and 15 fellow business leaders in the central Virginia community to launch a Green Business Alliance (GBA), an ambitious initiative that was announced in a press conference with Governor Northam this past May.  Sigora’s role in the GBA, led by Energy Efficiency & Sustainability Director Sarah Nerette, will contribute to a collective community goal to reduce emissions by 45% over the next 4 years. Paired with recent service expansion into California and several other US states, Sigora’s involvement with the GBA further enables its ability to lead by example and mitigate the effects of climate change while creating well-paid career opportunities that lift up the economy and the industry as a whole.
