San Luis Obispo-based REC Solar, a nationwide developer of on-site and community solar projects, has appointed Robb Jetty as the company’s CEO.

Announced March 4, Jetty has more than 20 years of experience in the development, financing, construction and operation of over $3 billion of solar and energy projects nationwide. 

Jetty was most recently the COO of Distributed Solar Development where he led the development, construction, engineering, procurement and asset management teams.

“REC Solar is a trusted name in the solar industry and has a decades-long history of helping hundreds of organizations achieve their sustainability goals through high-quality on-site solar and storage solutions. I believe in their vision of accelerating the nationwide transition to clean energy and know many great opportunities lie ahead in today’s changing business landscape,” Jetty said. 

“I look forward to joining this incredible team, working with the Board and leading REC Solar into its next chapter as the highest-quality solar partner for commercial businesses, municipalities and schools nationwide.”

Jetty joins REC Solar at a “pivotal time,” as the company focuses on expanding its presence in the U.S. commercial solar generation market and developing community solar opportunities nationwide, according to the press release.

“Robb is an accomplished and respected leader in the industry, and we are thrilled to welcome him to REC Solar. Robb brings a deep understanding of the solar industry as well as a proven track record of leading business growth,” Paul Walker, Executive Chairman of REC Solar’s Board of Directors, said in a press release.

“His experience, vision and drive will help REC Solar build on its current successes and accelerate our growth and opportunities in the coming years.”
