History

Origins of Solar in Northwest Arkansas

Richter Solar Energy’s founder Flint Richter was fortunate to cross paths with Jimis Damet, founder of Rocky Grove Sun Co. in 2001. This relationship continued until August 2014 when Jimis passed away way too early. We would like this page to serve as an online memorial to Jimis, his family and all the memorable hard work that went into making a small solar business work from the mid 80’s to 2014.

Jimis’s dedication to the solar industry inspired a huge off grid community in Northwest Arkansas and gained him recognition among the nations first pioneers in the infant PV industry.

You are missed but not forgotten!
