Keep the Lights on Colorado
Together we raised $30,000 to help Colorado families!
Thank you to the Colorado businesses that joined us in supporting Energy Outreach Colorado, a Denver-based not-for-profit helping families throughout Colorado who are unable to keep up with utility payments. The donations from this campaign will support 120 Colorado families with community solar subscriptions* for a year! These subscriptions provide long-term stability in the form of monthly bill credits that reduce the burden of home energy costs and free up dollars for other basic needs for these families – all while utilizing the cost saving and environmental benefits of clean solar energy.
Namasté Solar led the campaign with a contribution of $10,000, and we invited other Colorado companies to join us as supporting partners. Keep the Lights on Colorado was started by Namasté Solar as a way to give back to the communities that keep our businesses open.
“This entire process has demonstrated the power of pulling together as a community. This wasn’t accomplished by one individual or one organization — this was an effort that required cooperation and support from dozens of individuals and organizations that deeply care about the communities we live and work in,” said Jason Sharpe, Co-Owner and CEO of Namasté Solar. “We’re thankful that organizations like Energy Outreach Colorado exist and give us opportunities to come together and support Coloradans.”

About Energy Outreach Colorado
EOC believes that everyone deserves the basic necessity of being able to afford their home energy costs so they can live in a safe, warm home. Their mission is to make that a reality for Coloradoans.

- 1 in 4 households struggle with a high energy burden.
- These households are spending a disproportionate amount of their income on energy bills. The energy burden on low-income households is 3x that of higher income households.
- Households that meet or are below the 80% area median income threshold are often making difficult decisions because their home energy can cost more than 20% of their monthly income.
