Sigora Social offers solar power systems with $0 down and 100 percent financing available, with low monthly payments. According to the Sigora Social website, a solar power system can increase a home’s value by up to 5 percent.
Sigora Solar is certified by the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners. Such a certification demonstrates training, experience, and having passed a rigorous photovoltaics exam.
Sigora Solar is also a certified contractor with Pearl Advantage and BPI GoldStar, as well as a certified Tesla Powerwall installer. Pearl certifies a small number of top-tier firms that do high-quality work, ensuring that each is equipped with professional training and quality control processes. BPI GoldStar contractors adhere to a set of standards to ensure quality and consistency. Tesla Powerwalls can store solar energy for later use, such as at night or during a power outage.
Furthermore, in 2020 Solar Power World named Sigora Solar the #1 solar company in Virginia and the #22 solar company in the United States.
Sigora Solar financially guarantees the results of its solar power systems. The company guarantees that the solar power system will produce a certain amount of energy in the customer’s contract. After the system has been on and activated for 12 full calendar months, the customer can request a review of the system’s performance. If the system hasn’t generated the promised amount, Sigora Solar will reimburse the customer double the difference.
Current Sigora Solar customers who refer new customers to the company can receive rewards via the referral program. Five customer referrals will result in a $100 gift card. If a new customer completes an installation, the referring customer will receive $500. Two installations get the referring customer $1,000, while three installations result in a $2,000 reward.
Sigora Solar works with customers to bring electricity to people living in rural Haiti. Through the company’s Produce + Reduce package, each purchase of a solar power system also provides one for a family in Haiti.
Although the Sigora Solar website says the company installs solar power systems in 11 states across the Midwest and mid-Atlantic, it doesn’t specify which states those are.
Additionally, the company’s website doesn’t provide information on any warranties it may provide for its solar power systems.
