SolarGuru PBC is a vision that is 35 years in the making, ever since childhood best friends, Ashok and Miguel, started building solar cookers and rigging PV panels up with Ashok’s dad, renowned international solar energy expert, Dr. Sajed Kamal. Sajed has been one of the world’s most tireless advocates of solar energy for 40+ years, winning numerous awards for his efforts and helping countless families across the globe gain access to solar energy by setting up projects in the USA, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Armenia, El Salvador and Zimbabwe.
Sajed instilled a love and understanding of solar energy into Ashok and Miguel starting in elementary school. With the seed planted early, eventually as young men and fathers to their own children, they both leveraged this knowledge and purpose and became advocates for the planet earth through diverse and successful careers in social entrepreneurship. After making the choice to settle and raise their families in sunny San Diego – one of the country’s top solar energy markets – Ashok and Miguel, reunited with Sajed, applied their decades of collective experience and expertise in solar, engineering, design, marketing and finance to form SolarGuru Energy PBC.
As the need for an energy revolution has gone from “We will get to it ASAP” to a “Code Red” level emergency, Sajed, Ashok and Miguel redoubled their efforts to bringing solar energy to as many families as possible and helping them save both money and the environment. The lifetime of our founding team’s unwavering commitment to the energy revolution, along with their unwavering commitment to each other, is what sets SolarGuru Energy apart from all others. We care more, we share more and we have been there more. Let’s get together and save this beautiful planet one panel at a time!
