Namaste Solar invites Colorado companies and individuals to support our neighbors this season. We are pledging $10,000 to Energy Outreach Colorado, a not-for-profit that utilizes community solar subscriptions and emergency bill assistance to support Colorado families struggling to afford their home energy bills. Each community solar subscription reduces a family’s monthly bill while harnessing the cost savings and environmental benefits of solar energy.
Will you help us reach our goal of raising $100,000 to support 400 Colorado families? This year, every donation up to $50,000 will be matched by a generous local donor to help us reach our goal.
Individuals can give at any level to be entered into weekly prize drawings. A gift of $250 supports one Colorado family with a year-long community solar subscription. Click here to donate.
(Prizes include: tickets to the Museum of Contemporary Art and gift card to the museum gift shop; a pair of hats from Wallaroo Hat Company, a local B Corp; eight passes to ComedyWorks along with a gift card to Atomic Provisions restaurant group; a Yasso gift card for delicious, local frozen yogurt; two attraction passes for Boondocks; coffee sampler and coffee subscription with Conscious Coffees; a hundred dollar gift card to Simple Switch; and a hundred dollar gift card to Patagonia, a fellow B Corp.)

Energy Outreach Colorado works to expand access to affordable energy for Coloradans who have less power, privilege and income. We work with community members facing energy insecurity so they have a voice in ensuring the equitability of energy access. EOC programs provide a direct impact for the people they serve by helping them afford their energy costs, worry less, and live in a warm and safe home.
“This summer, my home was so hot. It was unbearable, but I was afraid to turn on my swamp cooler because the cost was so high. I knew I needed help, and thankfully I was able to get connected to Energy Outreach Colorado. They enrolled me in their solar program, and when I went to pay my Xcel bill, they said I had a zero balance now. I was so relieved, and now I can afford to keep my home at a safe temperature. You all made my summer!” – Paul
