About Us

Business is a service to society. It exists to serve its stakeholders such as the community it operates in, improve lives of the customers it serves, expand the horizon of the employees constituting it, and provide a reasonable return to the shareholders owning it; all in a manner that is prudent, fair and does not prioritize the interest of one over the other. Gaia Power aspires to do so in the development of clean energy.” — Samit Sharma, founder Gaia Power
