Namasté Solar accepted the Green Business of the Year Award presented by the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce at its 2009 Business Awards Luncheon held at the Hyatt Regency Denver on Tuesday, April 28, 2009.
Since 1982, the Chamber has honored businesses that have made outstanding contributions to the Denver metro community.
Namasté Solar was named the Green Business of the Year in part for its conscientious business model and in part for its comprehensive sustainability practices, including its LEED Gold certified (pending) main office in Boulder and its extensive zero‐waste initiatives.
"Winning the Green Business of the Year award is very special to us because it demonstrates that small businesses can put the environment first and also enjoy conventional, financial success." says Heather Leanne Nangle, Co‐owner and Director of Marketing & Communications of Namaste Solar. "We hope to inspire businesses of all types to work from their hearts, to respect the earth, and to strive for greatness."
Namasté Solar propagates the responsible use of solar energy, pioneers conscientious business practices, and creates holistic wealth for the community. Namasté is dedicated to bringing clean, reliable, and affordable renewable energy technologies to homes, businesses, and nonprofits in Colorado. Recently, Namasté Solar was highlighted by President Barack Obama during his Denver visit to sign the economic stimulus bill.
