OUR ENVIRONMENTAL ORIGINS:
Siit Arboretum Botanical Garden was the seed of our decision in opening a commercial corporation promoting alternative energy.
EAST did not create Siit Arboretum, Siit Arboretum created EAST, it is through bio-diversity conservation research and education programs and climate change mitigation action projects that EAST future partners got a jump start into a renewable energy consultancy company.
The Incorporation :
Alternative energy solutions need different sorts of inputs from a variety of people, EAST Solar Works addresses this need through its four original incorporators:
–Eric Hanquinet (Chairman,VP,Procurement): Familiar with the mechanical, electrical, botanical and architectural environment, he helped create, finance, and establish Siit Arboretum Botanical Garden, a bio-diversity conservation project comprising 11 hectares of plants collection. From the inception of the project all the water for the arboretum continues to be produced from solar pumping systems. This then being the initial step in the promotion of alternative energy solutions in all its facets from irrigation to solar ovens and aquaculture. Eric then established E.A.S.T., a new commercial entity. His main function: Coordinator and procurement.
