Transforming Energy, Transforming Business.
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 18 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 of 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.
Business can be a powerful engine for change in our communities, and that’s what we’re trying to do here at Namaste Solar. Not only do we transform the power of the sun into electricity, we’re also transforming the way businesses operate. 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.
