Namasté Solar’s mission is to propagate the responsible use of solar energy, pioneer conscientious business practices, and create holistic wealth for ourselves and our community.
How we define conscientious business practices:
• Prioritize “doing the right thing” above all else
• Contribute to social justice and positive social change
• Contribute to a healthier natural environment
• Benefit all stakeholders equitably (Holistic Wealth)
Our Pillars provide the fundamental framework for how we uphold Co-Ownership. Just as a building requires pillars in order to remain stable and prevent collapse, our company relies on this foundation when stressed by external and internal loading.
COOPERATIVE OWNERSHIP: We each own an equal voting share in our company.
DEMOCRATIC DECISION-MAKING: We participate in decision-making on a one-person, one-vote basis.
EXTREME TRANSPARENCY: We practice open book management and hold open meetings.
Chosen by our three founders, Blake Jones, Ray Tuomey, and Wes Kennedy, the Sanskrit word Namasté has important meaning. Used as a traditional Sanskrit greeting of respect for millennia, the word recognizes the interdependence of all living things. Our founders chose this word to represent our company values and for its unique ability to differentiate us from other companies.
