A new equity investor is joining Delta Solar and has been named the solar company’s chairman.
Bob East recently came onboard as Delta Solar’s chairman. East has been an active member of Arkansas’ business community, founding investment firm Robert East Co. and East-Harding Inc., a construction firm, in the 1970s. He also bought, and later sold, Advanced Cabling Systems.
“Very early in my career, I’ve learned the value of positive company culture, exceptional customer service, and the highest company values,” East said in a statement. “What separates Delta Solar from the pack is our diverse partner expertise, with both solar and financial experts as owners. Delta Solar is unique in the solar industry because we design and install our own projects, which leads to lower costs and better service for our clients. We also offer in-house financing for projects as the industry continues to grow.”
Originally named Delta SunEnergy, Delta Solar was established in 2017 by Douglas Hutchings and AJ Hood.
“We are really excited by today’s announcement,” Hutchings said. “Bob has a long track record of growing and operating successful companies, and we are happy he recognizes the value of our business. He shares our vision of the exceptional benefits of solar to Arkansas businesses, and wants to help bring this game-changing technology to as many companies as possible. And his professional experience will serve our company well.”
