Go big. Aim high. Bring it.

 

Because we’re working on behalf of future generations.

We’re supporting the shift to clean, renewable energy sources by working to make solar easy and accessible. As one of the only locally-born and raised Colorado solar companies still in business after 13 years, we’ve built a track record of success while creating something special: an employee-owned cooperative that runs its business as a force for good.

Transforming Business

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 walk our talk as a Certified B Corp.

What’s in a name?

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.

 

It’s more important than ever to be aware of the interconnectedness between people and the environment. Future generations are counting on us to find affordable solutions to the current energy crisis. Namasté Solar knows that bringing clean, renewable energy into homes and businesses now will make a direct, positive impact.
