CHARLOTTESVILLE, VIRGINIA – Sigora Solar, a top 25 US solar company and the largest residential solar company in Virginia, was recognized by Community Climate Collaborative as a “2020 Better Business Champion” during a virtual event this month.

“It’s truly an honor to be a part of the Better Business Awards and the Community Climate Collaborative,” Nerette said. “We are passionate about climate remediation, so this is a natural fit for our company. We love being able to work alongside fellow businesses in the Commonwealth to help reduce the effects of climate change where we work and live. We thank C3 for acknowledging our work and commitment to climate change mitigation. We have a long road ahead of us and we need to work together as a community to be successful.”
