Jovenel Moise is relying on US Startup Sigora International and Romanian native Andy Bogdan Bindea to make that dream a reality. He wants to prove to the world that he can develop this new technology in the poorest region of the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. He is banking

Sigora's founder and CEO Andy Bindea says: "Proving this technology in Haiti basically says it's doable anywhere else in the world"

Recently, Sigora Haiti, raised $2.5 million to expand its existing grid that has been serving 1,000 accounts serving 5,000 people in Haiti, to a network that will serve tens of thousands more in solar power. Once the entire first phase of the Northwest Haiti electrification project is complete, a venture budgeted at $10 million, the micro-utility will serve 27,000 accounts and 136,000 customers.

Sigora Haiti will design, install, own and operate a system of interconnected microgrids that's designed to scale quickly and cost-competitively. The system will be built to power homes, businesses and hospitals.

At the same time, it will enable Sigora Haiti to use prepaid metering technology. Today, Sigora Haiti serves as a premier provider of pay-as-you-go private electricity in Haiti. These meters are expected to be equipped with a wireless chip with the potential to connect every customer to the internet.

One final note: In November 2015, Sigora Haiti secured the exclusive right with the government of Haiti to provide electricity for the next 25 years in Haiti's Northwest Department.
