Welcome to Episode 32 of SunCast
Today we spend time with Andy Bindea of Sigora International, a company revolutionizing energy access in Haiti and beyond. Listen in if you’re interested in hearing:
- How Andy thinks about scaling electrification to serve the 1.3B people in the world without energy
- What it means to be the first Micro-utility with a concession to bring electricity to an entire region of Haiti, the largest market in Latin America for electrification and energy access
- The reason he believes building a technology-first company is what will empower their growth
- And using a franchise-like model for expanding their technology and business model beyond Haiti
Sigora is a specialty provider of micro-utility energy systems designed for frontier markets. They have focused on Haiti as a proving ground for their innovative grid-control hardware and software, and have built a very promising model for community empowerment that I hope you enjoy learning more about. I sure did.
