Transforming Energy. Transforming Business.
We work to propagate the responsible use of solar energy, pioneer conscientious business practices, and create holistic wealth for ourselves and our community.
Not just another solar company
We’re built from the ground up to be better
As one of the only locally born and raised Colorado solar companies still in business after 15 years, we’ve built a long track record of success while also creating something unique: an employee-owned cooperative that runs its business as a force for good in our communities.
What’s the secret to our success? People come to work here out with a desire to align their work and their values. And when you love what you do, why you’re doing it, and the people you work alongside, you do outstanding work.
We’re here to support the shift to clean renewable energy while also demonstrating that there is another way to do business – a better way. We’re pioneering conscientious business practices, such as employee-ownership and holistic stakeholder wealth, that result in a higher quality of life for employees, a superior quality experience for customers, and a positive impact on our wider stakeholder communities. As part of our commitment to transforming business, we practice the following:
- We prioritize “doing the right thing” above all else
- We contribute to causes that support positive social change
- We contribute to organizations working to make a healthier environment
- We seek to benefit all stakeholders equitably
- We expect business partners to meet our Stakeholder Code of Conduct
We work to be engaged members of our communities. This includes sharing 10% of net profits after preferred dividends with our community and paid volunteer time for our employees.
Pillars of Employee-Ownership
We share the risks and rewards of business ownership.
Major decisions are made on a one-person, one-vote basis.
We practice open book management and hold open meetings.
Our Core Values
We take our responsibilities seriously and hold ourselves and each other accountable.
We value the perspectives that each individual contributes to our company; no one of us is as smart as all of us.
We take ownership of our own and other stakeholders’ safety.
We think and act like business owners and proactively engage in co-creating our company’s success.
We measure profit and success holistically.
Frank, Open, Honest
We practice and encourage frank, open, honest (FOH) communication.
We foster learning and innovation while being open to taking risks and learning from our mistakes.
Namastaliens like to play and have fun together, and we’re fond of engaging in pranks and tomfoolery.
We seek to holistically balance the interests of our Customers, our Investors, our Community, our Company, Ourselves, and the Earth.
We prioritize long-term over short-term thinking in all that we do.
